ok I'm Asian and really, really enjoyed this movie! Loved the cinematography ( Singapore!) loved the food shots! Loved the soundtrack- yep still listening to "Can't help falling in love" and that climactic part- O MG -just so lovely! I never watch movies twice but I can watch this over again!

Basically, I didn't think it lived up to all the hype. Parts were funny & entertaining, but overall it had a lot of predictable fluff. Although the wedding scene was beautiful, most of the scenery was lavish and more interesting than what was going on in the movie. Had there been more character development, I think I would have enjoyed it more. I don't feel it was a "must-see" movie.

Wow, seriously folks! This film adaptation was so predictable and trite, I had to laugh. Actually I had quite a few good laughs, because it's so much fun to foretell what's going to happen next, and when it actually does, it's a riot! I'm sure the book was much better than this banal piece of garbage.

Directed by Jon M. Chu in 2018 based on the 2013 novel of the same name by Kevin Kwan, this American romcom follows a Chinese-American professor who travels to meet her boyfriend's family and who discovers his family turns out among the richest in Singapore.
Although it appers as a great entertaining piece with fabulous and rich settings and smartly crafted script, the film portraits Singapore like a Chinese city in Mainland China while virtually erasing non-Chinese citizens.
Anyroad I enjoyed it to the very end.

This is a very bright and modern romantic comedy. The Goh family is really funny, especially Peik Lin Goh!

Some may say it's just another romantic movie, but it was a bit different. I loved the Asian cast they were great actors.
It was worth the long wait just to see it.

Lavishly produced with an all-Asian cast and a good sense of humor about what too much money can/can't buy, this retelling of the modern, educated "foreigner" rejected by very proud, traditional matriarchs puts the emerging Asian economy (Singapore) in the best cosmopolitan light. Social media plays a role as two different cultures clash. Awkwafina's role as the loud, over-the-top but loyal friend sometimes steals the scenes from a decent enough love story. Note: occasional Mandarin/Malay with English subtitles.

Many quotes in IMDb already, thanks to the contributors, including this one:

Eleanor Young: There is a Hokkien phrase 'kaki lang'. It means: our own kind of people, and you're not our own kind.
Rachel Chu: Because I'm not rich? Because I didn't go to a British boarding school, or wasn't born into a wealthy family?
Eleanor Young: You're a foreigner. American - and all Americans think about is their own happiness.

Note: kaki lang (Hokkien pronunciation of 自家人, meaning “my own people”)
