Synopsis

Rachel Chu (Constance Wu), an American-born Chinese economics professor who lives in New York, has been dating her boyfriend Nick Young (Henry Golding) for over a year when he invites her on a trip to his home country of Singapore to attend his friend Colin's wedding and meet his family. On the trip, when they're booked into first class on the plane, Rachel soon finds out Nick comes from a very wealthy family. 

In fact, he's one of the most sought-after unmarried men back home — and probably throughout the rest of Asia. When Rachel meets Nick's mother, Eleanor (Michelle Yeoh), it quickly becomes clear that the woman thinks Rachel isn't good enough for her son and never will be. Even though Nick is crazy about Rachel and is considering marrying her, Eleanor does everything she can to come between them. Knowing that his family is very important to Nick, Rachel feels she either has to stand up to Eleanor — or let Nick go.

  • 2 stars "Wow so many good reviews from both critics and Tribute viewers. I guess i watched a different movie with the same title as I really didn't think it was very good. It seemed like one of those made-for-TV Hallmark romance shows, except with an all Asian cast and set primarily in Singapore. And no, before everyone gets all bent out of shape, I am not racist and it has nothing to do with the fact it has an Asian cast - I would have found it just as lame if it were an all American cast or an all Swedish cast or an all 'fill in the blank here' cast. It just wasn't that good. Characters were two-dimensional, subplots were not developed very well, and conflicts seemed too easily resolved. It really just reminded me of a made for cable TV movie. Anyway, just my 2 cents (or in this case, my 2 stars). PS - I love Asian people!"
