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.Written by

The reviews aren't wrong. This had a lot of promise, it could have been groundbreaking, but it ends up being a sequence of clichéd jokes about rich Chinese people.

However, there are some very tolerable and somewhat funny moments.
