Movie Review: Crazy Rich Asians

Release date: August 15th, 2018

Rating: PG-13

Hey cupcakes! My campus recently put on a free screening of Crazy Rich Asians, so of course my friends and I had to go :) I had heard nothing but good things about the film, but I still didn't know what to expect...Would the movie be the typical rom-com/chick flick with predictable plots and characters? NAH - I thought it was a great movie!

First, the characters are actually well developed (which is honestly a feat for the rom-com/chick flick genre haha). And I'm not just talking about the main couple; there were so many great secondary roles that had some nice character development too. I think the awesome cast of actors and actresses helped with this also!

I was worried that the plot would be predictable because the name of the movie and even the trailer give away the major storyline... But, it was an emotional rollercoaster! The love story felt so real and relatable even with this outrageous idea that their family is uber rich (which is not that relatable for many/all of us). Plus, THERE WERE SO MANY GREAT PLOT TWISTS! I also think the addition of some subplots with the secondary characters also added to the overall story of the film. :)

As much as it was emotional/heart-warming, it was also hilarious!!! I was laughing SO hard at times, and it was a great addition to the rom-com feel of the film. The costumes and scenery were just gorgeous throughout the whole movie (ummm the wedding scene was just over the top extra and I loved it), and the soundtrack was also filled with some bopping bops.

Overall, I would watch this movie again in a heartbeat. If I was having a bad day, this would cheer me up. If I needed a good cry, this would do the trick. And if I wanted to laugh for hours - Crazy Rich Asians! ;) I'd definitely recommend! ALSO, the sequel is coming out in June 2019, and I'm here for it!
