Trivia

Received a great deal of criticism from audiences and reviewers who objected to the fact that although this movie is set in Hawaii, it depicts almost no Asian- or Native-Hawaiian-descended characters, and the one main character who is supposed to be of both Chinese and native Hawaiian descent is played by a white actress, Emma Stone. The Media Action Network for Asian Americans (MANAA) released a statement saying, "60% of Hawaii's population is AAPIs. Caucasians only make up 30% of the population, but from watching this film, you'd think they made up 90%. This comes in a long line of films [exploiting] Hawaii for its exotic backdrop but goes out of its way to exclude the very people who live there. . . . It's an insult to the diverse culture and fabric of Hawaii." Asian American and Native Hawaiian writers such as Entertainment Weekly's Chris Lee, MSNBC's Janet Mock, and The Daily Beast's Jen Yamato were among many who criticized the film's cultural appropriation and pointed out the offensiveness of casting Stone in her role.

Feel Good Movie
31 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is not often that I see a movie that leaves me feeling good, but this one did. The characters were likable people. The relationships between the characters were interesting. The plot was simple and sweet. It is a romantic comedy, so it's easy to see how things are going to turn out, but the ending was still a pleasant surprise. There are plenty of things throughout the movie that made me laugh.

I love the cast. Bill Murray is an all time favorite. Rachael McAdams is adorable as always. John Krazinski is handsome and silently funny. Emma Stone is beautiful and goofy. Bradley Cooper is hot and complicated. What more could you want in a romantic comedy?
