Clint Says: Wait until after opening weekend, but see this in theaters
This is one of the best romantic comedies I've seen in a very long time. It is a film to which everyone that has ever dealt with someone else's family can relate.
This movie is filled with beautiful scenery, a compelling story, and wonderful acting. The leads, Constance Wu and Henry Golding, are great and you'll fall in love with both of them, but Awkwafina steals the show. She is hilarious, magnetic, and crazy awesome fun. We got a little bit of her personality in OCEAN'S 8, but it really shines through in this film. She is going to be a big star.
It is a funny movie, but it also has some emotional depth to it. You will feel lots of emotions while watching this movie.
The movie is a bit too long, clocking in at two hours, and it is formulaic, but it never overly feels like it is running too long, and there are enough twists to keep you on your toes even though we all know how things are going to turn out.
For those of you that have studied Asian culture or lived in an Asian culture this film hits all of the high points. There are several moments where you will find yourself laughing out loud at something the people around you are not getting.
If you like Rom-Coms this one needs to be on your list of must-see movies. It will be a fan favorite for many years.
