Mini Review - Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians (out Aug 30) could be described as a formulaic romantic comedy (which it kind of is) but that doesn’t tell the true story of its value in this cinematic landscape. It’s the first big studio movie to come out of the US in 25 years with a cast that predominantly Asian and Asian-American. There aren’t too many surprises in terms of story but this is still fun, engaging and entertaining. Grade: B+.
