Romantic Comedy: A young Asian-American woman travels to Singapore for a wedding where she meets and must contend with her boyfriend's ultra-wealthy family.
Rachel Chu (CONSTANCE WU) is an Asian-American economics professor who teaches at NYU and has been dating Nick Young (HENRY GOLDING) for about a year. Not until they're in the air and headed to Singapore -- to attend the wedding of Nick's best friend Colin Khoo (CHRIS PANG) to Araminta (SONOYA MIZUNO) -- and then staying with her college roommate, Peik Lin Goh (AWKWAFINA) and her parents, Wye Mun (KEN JEONG) and Neena (KOH CHIENG MUN) -- does Rachel learn that Nick comes from an ultra-wealthy family that made their fortune from real estate and more.

Having grown up with single, working-class mom Kerry (TAN KHENG HUA), this is a pleasant surprise for Rachel, although Nick warns her about the interesting array of characters in his family that she's about to meet.

There's family matriarch Ah Ma (LISA LU) who's welcoming to Rachel and Nick's mom, Eleanor (MICHELLE YEOH), who's not, despite having likewise once been an outsider to the family before marrying into it. Nick's cousin, Astrid Young Teo (GEMMA CHAN), is thoroughly pleasant, even after learning some disturbing news about her husband, Michael (PIERRE PNG), while another cousin, film producer Alistair Cheng (REMY HII), is dating actress Kitty Pong (FIONA XIE) who could prove to be an embarrassment to the well-known family.

Investment banker cousin Eddie (RONNY CHIENG) is a jerk to most everyone, unlike fashion designer Oliver T'Sien (NICO SANTOS) who everyone likes, especially Eleanor who utilizes him as her fixer. And then there's wild party boy Bernard Tai (JIMMY O. YANG) who isn't a family member by blood, but has been around them for years and is the one throwing the extravagant bachelor party for Colin and the rest of the guys.

As Rachel meets all of them and more, she must contend with varying reactions to her not being rich and being Asian-American rather than full Asian, all of which begins to put a strain on her relationship with Nick.

Those into romantic comedies featuring the lifestyles of the rich will likely be enticed.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
