Trivia

Jon M. Chu personally wrote to the members of Coldplay for permission to use a cover of 'Yellow.' Aside from Yellow's obvious connotation as an epithet, the band was also reluctant to be associated with the film because of the accusations of cultural appropriation surrounding their song 'Princess of China.' However, Chu won them over after explaining his personal fondness of the song and his desire to "reclaim" the word from its usage as a racial slur. See more »

Monumental Yellowwashing
3 September 2018 | by Larry-DonaldsSee all my reviews

This commercial and 1980s' style film is made for rich and shallow Singaporean princesses who are too self-absorbed to notice marrying rich and having material 'things' is sordid and embarrassing.

Singapore is powered by Malays and Indians and this elitist film yellowwashes them mercilessly. I was so sad that the year is 2018 and a segment of the population think it is either "romantic" or "comedy" that women are hungry for money and back stabbing and we have not reached a point to know that less is more.

Three *** Stars for the pretty women
