Movie review score

What’s it about?
Rachel agrees to accompany her longtime boyfriend to his best mate’s wedding in Singapore, which will involve her meeting the family. Then she finds out he’s one of the country’s most eligible bachelors.  He’s also rich… like, crazy rich… and she’s pushed into the spotlight.

What did we think?
Elizabeth Best says: I love the fact that this isn’t an “Asian” movie per se: it transcends race. It’s a blockbuster romantic comedy that just happens to have an all-Asian cast. Because of the wealth of the characters, it’s a feast for the eyes as well as the heart. Thoroughly enjoyable modern take on the Cinderella trope that proves diversity on screen doesn’t just work, it kicks ass.

Also, this movie made me feel really really poor, and really really single. Just saying.
