“Crazy Rich Asians” Movie (2018) — Vulgar, Slightly Boring & Christian Propaganda!

I was not impressed. If anything I was kind of bored for much of the time. It might WOW the young and the impressionable, but I found its constant attempts to shock us with over-the-top ostentatious plain vulgar and rude.

I, as an Asian, found the in-your-face Christian angle insulting. Only 19% of Singaporeans are Christians. Only 3% of Chinese are Christians. I have met a highly educated native-born Chinese, who had spent many years living in the U.S., who had never heard of the pope! But, in this movie all the rich Chinese are Christians. Our first introduction to Singapore involves a Bible reading group. The whole wedding is centered on a church. Come on! Give me a break. Plus, ALL the main characters have English names! Give me a break.

I expected it to be along the lines of a fast-paced, light-hearted Bollywood movie with lots of music, dance and fun. It wasn’t. Did I say that it was boring.

Yes, it gloried wealth and a mindless pursuit of happiness. It did not impress. Shame. It could have been a lot of fun.

We paid $5.00 to watch it on Prime Video. That was $4.99 too much. So, no, I will not recommend it.
