    Crazy Rish Asians, is refreshing to see a wide release. See Hollywood, take a chance and narrow minded views on what you think people want to see, will change. Ie: Black Panther got a hefty budget and huge release and look what happened. Now see CRA #1 at the box office. Shift your views and open your minds.
