Subscribe To Crazy Rich Asians Has Screened, Here’s What People Are Saying Updates
It's rare to see a big screen movie that features an entirely Asian cast, which is why Crazy Rich Asians is a big deal for a lot of people. There's a lot potentially riding on the film's success, but the good news is that the first hurdle has been overcome, as it turns out Crazy Rich Asians is really quite good. So far there doesn't seem to be a single bad review of the film.
Romantic comedies have had a difficulties recently, largely due to the fact that they follow very predictable formulas and it can be hard to find a way to bring something new to the genre. However, by virtue of the fact that Crazy Rich Asians is such a unique film, The Wrap feels it gets a pass when it comes to dealing with tropes.
Of course, the thing that Crazy Rich Asians is going to mostly be seen as is an opportunity for a broad cast of Asian actors to get an opportunity on screen they likely would not have any other way. As Time Out points out, this allows the film to, ironically, be diverse with its cast within the culture that is being given the spotlight.
If there's anything negative that can be said about the film, the Seattle Times maybe says it, as its review claims the movie is, as is often the case, not as good as the original source material, but that doesn't change the fact that the movie is still great.
If you're a fan of diversity in filmmaking then Crazy Rich Asians is a no-brainer, but even if that doesn't mean all that much to you and you'd just like to see a solid rom-com for the first time in a while, it looks like Crazy Rich Asians may satisfy a diverse film audience as well.
