When Nick is talking to his family about Rachel, he mentions that she teaches millennials. While Nick and Rachel's ages are never explicitly mentioned, we can guess by the 1995 flashback that Nick at least is of the age range generally accepted to be a millennial (early 1980s to mid-1990s). Nick and Rachel seem to be near the same age, making both of them millennials. Unless Rachel is only teaching graduate students, her students would be firmly placed in the Generation Z age range.

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. Don't get me wrong, it could be funny - just as Bend it like Beckham was a funny Indian flick which delivered Asian clichés but did it well. Crazy Rich Asians doesn't, it does it pretty badly.
However, there are some very tolerable and somewhat funny moments.
