Crazy Rich Asians reviews: Movie rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes

Per Lowry: 'Crazy Rich Asians understandably feels like an occasion - a big, colorful coming-out party for Asian (and especially Asian-American) talent.

The stars of Crazy Rich Asians are opening up about the importance of the film in society today.

Early critics of the film have called it a "highly satisfying, decidedly old-fashioned romantic comedy, " "heartwarming, well-acted - and decadent", and "breathless fun". Not only is he the scion of one of the country's wealthiest families, but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. She was accompanied by her son, Bimby. No doubt, however, that she looked regal in all of them. But that's before she encounters the tradition-bound Youngs, amid a whirlwind trip filled with plenty of detours, most created to show off Singapore (the tourism bureau should be over the moon), delectable dishes and dazzling opulence.

He couldn't help but also check on his wife's hair to make sure she looks super great too.

Constance Wu stars as the inimitable Rachel Chu from the best-selling novel Crazy Rich Asians, by Kevin Kwan.

At least 22 killed in Italy as motorway bridge collapse
Firefighters and state police worked to pull survivors from the site of the deadly bridge collapse in Genoa, Italy, on August 14. Defence Minister Elisabetta Trenta said the army was ready to offer manpower and vehicles to help with the rescue operations.

'Don't worry: Crazy Rich Asians won't bomb, and while it won't beat Black Panther either, the film is every bit as exciting in the way it takes an ethnic group that is seldom given more than one or two supporting roles per movie and populates an entire blockbuster with memorable, multidimensional Asian characters, ' said reviewer Peter Debruge.

Of course, because of Hollywood's shoddy history with Asian actors, the movie's mere existence is being heralded as a breakthrough.

Michelle Yeoh (R), who plays Eleanor Young in the film, and actress Ming-Na Wen of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. attend the premiere.

The last Hollywood studio film featuring a large Asian cast was "The Joy Luck Club" in 1993.

Crazy Rich Asians opens in theaters on August 15.
