Crazy Rich Asians (2018 Movie)

Now that I’ve reviewed the book, once again it’s time to see how the movie measures up. All in all, I think that it’s a good adaptation. Every film adaptation has differences and omissions from the source material. I tried to keep my review of the novel fairly spoiler-free, but
