Peik Lin Goh:
Rachel, these people aren't just rich, okay. They're crazy rich. Look, there's new money all over Asia. We got the Beijing Billionaires, the Taiwan Tycoons. But the Young family, they're old money rich. They had money when they left China in the 1800s. And they went all the way down here. Not there. Here. They came to Singapore when there was nothing but jungle and pig farmers. There was a snake here, eating an apple. You know what I mean? And they built all of this. Now, they're the landlords ...

This is such a shallow movie adapted from a lousy shallow novel. I gave it a shot but then wasted a short time of my life to find out its hollow
shallowness. My curiosity came from my wife when she read this novel, but she couldn't stop complaining and cursing about its shallowness and poor writing of its author. Even though she disliked or more precisely speaking, hated it very much, but since she got a very stubborn habit, i.e., once she decided to pick up a book to read, no matter how bad it is, she'd finish it, even it might cause pain and annoyance. I overheard her curses and complaints so often during reading this novel which was given to her as a gift. But once she finally finished, she threw it into the garbage can right away. Well, out of curiosity, I sneakily picked it out and perused it quickly. I immediately found out that her complaints and curses were true, I couldn't read it after 10 pages because the writing was just so poor to read. I just couldn't believe it could be published, and then Jesus crying on a crutch, it even adapted into a screenplay and became a blockbuster box office phenom!!!
Like what I've mentioned as above, I tried to watch the film but just couldn't finish it; it's as bad as the novel itself. What's wrong America?! How could it possible a lousy novel would be able to attract a bunch of movie makers to purchase its movie right and made it into a movie and became so hot as the No.1 Box Office and raking so much money from the movie goers? There's only one truth about this novel and the movie: Some Asians in Singapore or especially in China are indeed outrageously filthy rich. The so-called American middle class if compare to those rich people in Asia, would suddenly turned into a homeless-like laughable beggars. Those Asians on the other hand are also trying so hard to look like and live like the Westerners, if exactly speaking, the Americans. But these filthy rich Asians could only imitate the outlook or the outside of the Westerners, and they only inevitably but wrongfully grabbed the Materialism and nothing more.
The novel that was disposed by my wife was now as part of the raised base of several books I used to make my monitor a bit higher than my laptop and at least it serves some practical purpose for a Crazy Poor Asian American. I rest my case.
