Trivia

Contrary to popular belief, this is NOT the "first" Western-produced major studio film with an extensive East Asian cast since The 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 & Kumar Christmas (2011), Letters from Iwo Jima (2006), Memoirs of a Geisha (2005), Better Luck Tomorrow (2002) and Rumble in the Bronx (1995) 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 (2012), Slumdog Millionaire (2008), Moana (2016), and excluding The Last Samurai (2003), which featured a majority East Asian cast but with a white male lead.) It also fails to note relevant cinema produced overseas that feature Asians in America such as Ang Lee's The 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 the plane flight graphic displays the flight from New York to Singapore á la Indiana Jones, the line drawn goes over Europe. Planes would fly almost due north (358 degrees) to take the shortest route for this long (nearly 10,000 km) flight, i.e., over the North Pole and Russia. See more »

Quotes

Amanda Ling: I can see why Nick put off coming back to Singapore.
Rachel Chu: What do you mean?
Amanda Ling: You know. He was supposed to come back last year, take over the family business. His parents freaked out when he didn't. But, now that he's back, I'm sure all is forgiven.

Only For Chinese People Who Think 'Driving' An Expensive Car Is Cool
20 August 2018 | by omr-79841See all my reviews

It is 2018, the world is burning, overpopulation and pollution is rampant and there are people out tere who are more concerned about wearing a name brand dress or carrying a name brand bag and driving a very embarrassing and tacky SUV (yuck). Those are whom this film targets. People who do not realize they are shallow and superficial and it is not cool to fart your way through this life polluting, cheating, whoring and generally being an embarrassment. I have visited China and Singapore and and and am embarrassed that shallow material goods is mistaken for fun and love.
