Trivia

In the novel Rachel breaks up with Nick because Nick's mother Eleanor had a background check done on Rachel's family. This is taken from Kevin Kwan's novel, but in the novel that is not the only reason why Rachel broke up with him. Rachel also learns that when he was a teenager Nick participated in a ménage à trois. Rachel is not angry at the act itself, but the fact that Nick never told her about it. See more »

Goofs

When Eleanor plays mahjong with Rachel, she is handed the dice, which means she is the 'dealer'. She rolls a 10 and starts taking tiles from the stack in front of herself. However, with a roll of 10, the tiles should be drawn starting at the woman to Eleanor's right. See more »

Quotes

Oliver T'sien: I'm one of the poorer relations. The rainbow sheep of the family. But I make myself useful. Whatever the Youngs want, I procure. Golden koi fish, Huanghuali furniture. A rare Cambodian gong.

Pure Trump Style Propaganda.
7 October 2018 | by crcybjiaSee all my reviews

Calling Crazy Rich Asians a romantic film maker is like calling Donald Trump's lust for Ivanka cute. Moreover, there is such a gap between the rich and the poor that the rich need to be ashamed. There is nothing but embarrassment promoting this nonsense. And the materialistic mother was a Xian. Figures.
