The Only Thing Crazier Than Love is Family.

On top of having to deal with becoming a target, her possible future mother-in-law looks down on her, considering her to be unworthy of her son. How will love survive such challenges?

CommentsThe film contains complex and mature themes presented in a comedic context mature themes presented in a comedic context, interrogating issues of prejudice, family relations, love, friendship, betrayal, infidelity, secretes, family expaxtions, rich family, sacrifice, forgiveness, jealousy, lies being spreaad, wealth, deception, and a wedding party. The themes carry a low sense of threat and menace. The themes are light-hearted, however, some of the themes might have the potential to cause moral harm. eg. the film carries bad language use which younger viewers might immitate and this would be misleading as they are still of impressionable minds and are still cognitively immature to comprehend such themes. The theme of prejudice is also highlighted in the film, the prejudice in the film is through out the film and is thematic and would therefore be misleading to younger viewers, as they might think that such actions or the use of prejudicial language are ok to use. A suitable age rating would be a 13 as viewers who are 13 and older would have the ability to recognise the context as the themes are treated sensitively and in ways that would be within their tolerance levels.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconWith an uber-attractive cast, good performances all around, lavish production values and the various to-be-expected trappings of the genre (that fans of these sorts of films love or at least willingly accept), Crazy Rich Asians is the grandly entertaining rom-com we've been waiting a while for, and hopefully one that will result in many more roles in front of and behind the camera for folks of Asian descent.

Tomatometer quote iconWith a terrific cast and a surfeit of visual razzle dazzle, Crazy Rich Asians takes a satisfying step forward for screen representation while deftly drawing inspiration from the classic -- and still effective -- rom-com formula.
