Based on Kevin Kwan's best-selling novel, Crazy Rich Asians is the story of Chinese American economics professor Rachel Chu (Constance Wu), who travels to Singapore to attend a wedding with her boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding). Rachel will be meeting Nick's family for the first time, and it turns out she's woefully unprepared. Nick concealed his family background so that Rachel is shocked when Nick arranges a first class suite for the flight. Well, Nick just says that his family is comfortable.
She has no idea that not only are the Youngs wealthy, but they're a prestigious "old money" family, and Nick is essentially the prince of Singapore. Actually, Nick plans to propose to Rachel, while his mother Eleanor insists that Nick should marry someone in a high state. What’s more, Rachel has to adapt to jealous ex-girlfriends and Nick’s admirers, who defile her bed with a dead fish and a message calling her a gold digging in the party. Nick discovers Rachel’s upset over his secrecy about his family. He apologizes and takes Rachel to make dumplings by hand.
Whatever, Rachel makes a good impression on the wedding. However, things are not developed smoothly as they thought. On the reception of the wedding, Eleanor and Shang Su Yi know Rachel’s family background and think she cheats Nick. Fortunately, Nick has a firm relationship with Rachel. Finally, Eleanor and Rachel acknowledge each other.
I think the sentence of “Money can't buy love but makes things complicated” is apt to the theme of the Crazy Rich Asians. When Rachel doesn’t know Nick is actually a rich man, they fall in love for years. From it, we can see that they are sincerely treating this relationship. And Rachel loves Nike just because of his nature but not his wealth. On the contrary, they may be unable to get married suppose Rachel knows the truth. You may feel that this kind of things is far away with you. The truth is that you are in the situation.
