Storyline

The story follows Rachel Chu (Wu), an American-born Chinese economics professor, who travels to her boyfriend Nick's (Golding) hometown of Singapore for his best friend's wedding. Before long, his secret is out: Nick is from a family that is impossibly wealthy, he's perhaps the most eligible bachelor in Asia, and every single woman in his ultra-rarefied social class is incredibly jealous of Rachel and wants to bring her down.

Trivia

Contrary to popular belief, this is NOT the "first" Western-produced major studio film with an extensive East Asian cast since Joy Luck Club (1993). Other major studio backed, North American releases featuring an extensive East Asian cast as leads include: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny (2016) released just two years earlier. Revenge of the Green Dragons (2014), A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas (2011), Letters from Iwo Jima (2006), Memoirs of a Geisha (2005), Better Luck Tomorrow (2002), Rumble in the Bronx (1995) and Joy Luck Club (1993) to name a few. Even Mulan (1998) was significant. (This misnomer also neglects to recognize movies and animation extensively featuring Pacific Islanders and East Indians produced in America by major film studios such as Life of Pi, Slumdog Millionaire, Moana, and excluding The Last Samurai (2003), which featured a majority East Asian cast but with a white man's fantasy lead.) It also fails to note relevant cinema produced overseas that feature Asians in America such as Ang Lee's Wedding Banquet (1993) and many others. Truer portrayals of actual real live Asian Americans, who are more remarkable than typical, can also be found in recent non-fictional documentaries such as Abacus: Small Enough to Jail (2016), Tyrus (2015), Linsanity (2013), and many more.

Goofs

When Nick asks Rachel to go to Singapore, he says "Singapore for Spring break". This would place the timing of the film between March and April of the calendar year. However, the Tan Hua (Queen of the Night Flower), which blooms on the second night after they arrive, only blooms between July and October. See more »

Quotes

Wye Mun Goh: Let me get this straight. You both went to the same school. Yet someone came back with a degree that's useful, and the other one came back as Asian Ellen.
