This review of the movie contains the following information:
Crazy Rich Asians is a romantic comedy based on the best-selling novel of the same name by author Kevin Kwan. Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) is a young Asian-American woman who teaches economics at New York University. Her boyfriend, the dashingly handsome Nick Young (Henry Ewan Golding), invites her to travel to Singapore to attend his best friend’s wedding. When she arrives at the airport, Rachel is very surprised to be ushered into first class, and Nick admits to her that his family is ‘comfortable’. It gradually becomes clear to Rachel that ‘comfortable’ is an understatement, and she discovers that Nick is actually the beloved son and heir to one of Singapore’s richest and most powerful families. Not only must Rachel navigate many cultural challenges, she is also faced with the hostility of Nick’s formidable mother Eleanor (Michelle Yeoh). Rachel’s holiday in Singapore turns out to be so much more than she bargained for.
Children and adolescents may react adversely at different ages to themes of crime, suicide, drug and alcohol dependence, death, serious illness, family breakdown, death or separation from a parent, animal distress or cruelty to animals, children as victims, natural disasters and racism. Occasionally reviews may also signal themes that some parents may simply wish to know about.
Wealth and social status; love and romance; traditional family values versus modern values; clash between Eastern and Western cultural values
Research shows that children are at risk of learning that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution when violence is glamourised, performed by an attractive hero, successful, has few real life consequences, is set in a comic context and / or is mostly perpetrated by male characters with female victims, or by one race against another.
Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.
Nothing of concern

Crazy Rich Asians is a light, frothy rom-com with plenty of laughs and visual appeal.

It is likely to lack interest for children under 8 and is not recommended for this age group, with parental guidance recommended for children aged 8 to 13 due to adult themes, sexual references and coarse language.
The main messages from this movie are to stand up for yourself and be confident and to never be ashamed of your roots.
