Goofs

At the movie beginning when Rachel and Nick are eating in the restaurant in New York (seemingly in the afternoon), someone snaps their photo and sends it on a long journey that eventually reaches Eleanor. She is in a Bible study class, but interrupts to call Nick on the phone. He receives her call before they have even left the restaurant. However Singapore is 13 hours ahead of New York, and it would be the middle of the night there. See more »

Quotes

Nick Young: [as they walk through the food market] Each of these hawker stalls sells pretty much one dish, and they've been perfecting it for generations. You know, this is one of the only places in the world where street food vendors actually earn Michelin stars.

Really really whitewashed
22 December 2019 | by yyeruwSee all my reviews

Not yellowwashed. This was whitewashed. These are not East Asians. They are white folk. The second act is way funnier than the first one. I thought by the first act that they would end up in a hamburger joint and show off their pendant with pictures of Donnie and Ivanka locking lips. Instead we got a Christian mother who appropriately babbled nonsense.
