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.
