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.
