It's won over audiences in America and is poised to do so when it lands in the UK on 14th September. And we've got the lowdown on smash-hit rom-com Crazy Rich Asians from our Unlimited members, who were lucky enough to see the movie in advance last Saturday.
This vibrant adaptation of Kevin Kwan's bestselling novel is the story of a young New York economics professor who is introduced to her boyfriend's insanely wealthy Singapore family. It's filled to the rafters with visual extravagance and enjoyable characters, and is the first Hollywood movie to feature an all-Asian cast for 25 years.
So what did Unlimited members make of the movie? We'll start with this from Laura, who describes the movie as a mouthwatering experience in more ways than one.
Yes, so much, thank you! Can't wait to see it again (and again). A proper rom com, lots of lovely shots of Singapore and food - omg, if you start selling dumplings once the screenings get out you'll make a killing.— Laura Creaven (@lauracreaven) September 1, 2018
Joe agrees, praising the movie's design and raft of scene-stealing performances.
An absolute blast from start to finish. Incredibly well cast (Gemma Chan and Awkwafina steal the show), excellent production values and really, really funny. I can't wait to see it again when it's on general release.— Joe Warne (@warneinator) September 1, 2018
Sue says it's a delightful feel-good movie with an important message.
Funny with a morality theme - money and designer clothes don't make a person! Great characters and locations, a really enjoyable film #CrazyRichAsians cheered me up after a stressful day.— Sue Ginda (@SueGinda) September 2, 2018
Charlotte goes one further, describing it as one of her favourite films of the year.
Romantic comedy perfection! Incredible leads, superb ensemble cast, well written and beautifully directed. Uses the conventions of the great romcoms of the past but makes them fresh, new and current. Easily in my top five films of the year so far. pic.twitter.com/YWd8G9qbFB— Charlotte Sometimes (@sometimesmovies) September 1, 2018

Declan reserves praise for one particular cast member.

And KC says the movie lives up to the ecstatic reviews.
