Highly Suspect Reviews: Crazy Rich Asians

0 Submitted by on Tue, 14 August 2018, 13:08

Jon M. Chu (director of one of Chris’s favorite guilty pleasures of all time, Step Up 3D) heads this adaptation of the popular novel about a middle-class Asian-American woman (Constance Wu) whose very serious Chinese boyfriend (Henry Golding) takes her with him to Singapore to his brother’s wedding only for her to discover he’s so rich, he’s basically royalty. Dealing with his gigantic family, and especially his disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) is tough, but Singapore…damn. Ain’t no partying like partying with crazy rich people in a crazy rich town. With a solid supporting cast as well, who knew our team of reviewers would actually enjoy this all-Asian rom-com as much as they did? Listen to Chris, Kim, Ben, and Michael dish up the goods.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
