Frothy, funny, romantic comedy suitable for mature tweens
We brought my 9 and 12 year old daughters to see this fantastic movie. Since I read all 3 novels and another friend had seen the movie in a special preview, I knew what was involved. Thus I had warned both girls that there would be inappropriate language and sexually suggestive scenes (shirtless men in a few scenes, the main male character, Nick, kissing Rachel while both are in bed, etc.). They've heard worse language (e.g., I don't think the F word was used in Crazy Rich Asians) as they've watched all the Marvel movies and watched reality cooking shows. They've also seen more sexually suggestive content on network TV.
Both girls loved the movie! We found it funny, endearing, and charming. Plus, I wanted my daughters to see Asians on the big screen speaking in English who are not the laughing stock of the room, the nerdy tech guy, or the main characters' nice friend. Instead, my Chinese American girls can see people who look like them in a wide range of crazy situations! In particular, I think Rachel Chu is a strong, independent heroine who is a good role model.
I highly recommend this movie to others, especially those of Asian descent. It was such a fun movie but even more poignant to me because of our shared heritage.
