    The story follows New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. Not only is he the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families, but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim.

    I really enjoyed this and was glad to see it in theaters - it felt like it had been a little while since there was such a good, successful, mainstream theatrical romantic comedy. Such a huge genre for so long, and then lately, not much of anything of note. So it was great to have a romantic comedy topping the box office, and extra special for the fact that it was more representative of the world we live in today.

    I don't think it's giving anything away to note that the reason the main characters are traveling is to attend a wedding; the bride in the film walks down the aisle to the same song my wife chose on our day, and when that scene happened in the film, I just started crying big time. The movie has a lot more going for it than just that one moment, but I was so instantly and completely transported back to my own wedding for that brief moment and I don't think I'll ever be able to watch that scene without having the same recurrence of happy tears.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this in theaters and will get the disc at some point. I'd really like it to be less than $24.99 though.

    It’ll be $19.99 or less on release day.

    But I’m holding out for the 4K.

    Warner Bro. titles have been $24.99 on release day in the recent past. I'd love to be wrong though.

    I hope they come out with one, but what would be the point of announcing that later? Their current plan might be to forgo one. In which case that's a stupid plan.
