The reviews aren't wrong. This had a lot of promise, it could have been groundbreaking, but it ends up being a sequence of clichéd jokes about rich Chinese people. Don't get me wrong, it could be funny - just as Bend it like Beckham was a funny Indian flick which delivered Asian clichés but did it well. Crazy Rich Asians doesn't, it does it pretty badly.
However, there are some very tolerable and somewhat funny moments.
