You know those movies when two people fall in love and when he finally takes her home and his mom basically loses her mind, hating on her?
This is one of those movies, but it is SO much more! I don’t know if you’ve ever heard the saying:
“There’s always an Asian who does it Better than you”.
But I must say, that certainly is the truth and it is apparent in this movie. You get rich people and they have huge mansions and you get royalty where they have acres of land and castles, then you get Crazy Rich which will just make you question what you are doing with your life.
There is something special about being self-made and not having your wealth handed down to you.
There were so many moments in the movie where I felt my mind being blown! And one of my all-time favourite independent artists, Kina Grannis, does a quick cameo in the movie. I don’t want to give the entire plot of the movie away so let me just say, I got actual chills when she sang. The entire setting and the mood that was created in this movie makes this one of my favourite movies.
The pace was perfect, the cast, the set designs, the humour, the romance, everything was so well thought out and well-executed. The story is almost relatable but also so far out of anything I have ever experienced. It’s just one of those feel-good movies that you could watch more often than what’s probably socially acceptable. I remember leaving the theatre saying to my sister that I wanted to watch it again.
