Re: “Jane Austen-in-Singapore 'Crazy Rich Asians' Fizzles

I thought it was overall the cheesy/corny love story, but maybe thats what they were going for!! Its OK too!.. So Im Asian-American, & while you think we deserve a better film, I would disagree because there is so much more than recognition among the general audience. At the end of the day, a best selling author got to see his work up on the big screen, we got to laugh a little at familiar little anecdotes from my childhood: scene where they play MahJong, big families with unique individual personalities, moms being super gossipy, peers wanting to 1-up each other, etc.. & yes I enjoyed celebrating the fact that it was an entire Asian cast up on the big screen!

TL;DR, The big take away is that Id like to focus on celebrating the big/small wins for Author Kevin Kwan & the entire crew, rather than thinking We deserve a better film.
