Crazy Rich Asians Is Going to Make Comedy History

“Crazy Rich Asians”
Sanja Bucko

Like Crazy Rich Asians, this August's comedy that assembles a dream team of Asian actors for what looks like a lavish, indulgent, and amusing summer romp. However, that also comes with its own complications, including facing Nick's disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) and an army of jealous socialites.

Led by Fresh Off the Boat star Constance Wu and Henry Golding, the Crazy Rich Asians cast is filled with up-and-coming global performers of Asian heritage, including Gemma Chan, Awkwafina and Harry Shum Jr.

New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) receives an invitation from her boyfriend Nick Young (Henry Golding) to his best friend's wedding in Singapore.

A tussel ensues between the mother and the lover in which Rachel doesn't seem in a mood to back down. "I'm much more of a Harry". The screenplay is by Peter Chiarelli and Adele Lim, based on the novel Crazy Rich Asians, by Kwan.

"I know you're not what Nick needs", she frankly quips in one scene.

It quickly turns Rachel into the talk of the town and a fish out of water as she tries to navigate social niceties with her less-than-welcoming possible future mother-in-law and other characters of Asia's high society. "And if he chose his family, he might spend the rest of his life resenting you".

"If Nick chose me, he would lose his family", she says.

Crazy Rich Asians will hit theaters on August 17.

Aside from Wu and Golding, the all-star cast includes Hangover scene-stealer Ken Jeong, Awkwafina (Ocean's 8), Gemma Chan (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Harry Shum Jr.
