Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: With a terrific cast and a surfeit of visual razzle dazzle, Crazy Rich Asians takes a satisfying step forward for screen representation while deftly drawing inspiration from the classic -- and still effective -- rom-com formula.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Crazy Rich Asians is a book-based romcom that centers on Rachel Chu (Constance Wu), a smart, independent Chinese American economics professor who's in love with Nick Young (Henry Golding), who turns out to be from an insanely wealthy Singapore family. The world of materialism, obscene wealth, status, and expectation that Rachel encounters there is totally over the top: Money is literally thrown in the air. Expect to hear some strong language (including "s--t," "t-ts," and more) and see drinking during many party scenes; cocaine use is also briefly implied. Couples kiss, and sex is suggested but not shown; one actress is rumored to be a porn star, and men make snide comments about women's cosmetic surgery and physical appearance (including small breasts). That said, women aren't objectified overall; instead, the camera tends to linger on shirtless men. The very rare mainstream Hollywood release to feature an all-Asian cast, the film avoids Asian stereotypes -- but it does have a fairly stereotypical gay character. And the cattiness is off the charts, with some fairly shocking "mean girl" behavior. But it's refreshing to see a romcom heroine who doesn't need saving by a man (Rachel loves her life, and she and Nick have a healthy, respectful relationship), and the film has strong messages about loving yourself, staying in control, and addressing problems with dignity and class.
