Thought this to be mediocre to submediocre -- the book, which is more in the realm of profiles of the super-rich, was more entertaining. Nice visuals and great for a travelogue. Don't really care for the main actress -- in any…

So Fantastic! Finally a Asian film to me as moving as The Joy Luck Club. Really enjoyed this Millenial film on young Asian Love. Very positive & inspiring JF

Entertaining rom-com. Watching it has made me add reading the next two books in the triology to my 'to-read' list when I'm looking for some light-hearted, easy fiction.

More like a fantasy and dream. I came from SouthEast Asia. Can tell you it is not real to be that rich in Singapore. I love the look of the lead actor and actress, but tired of Michelle Kwon.

Ugh. Unoriginal plot, shallow characters, nothing enjoyable about it.

I enjoyed this non serious movie about the rich and the poor. The first surprise to me was how well most of the actors and actresses spoke English as I would expect accents since the movie was suppose to be placed in Asia. I also liked…

Although I do not understand most of the songs presented in the soundtrack, this soundtrack is actually nice to listen to. It reminds me of different scenes from the feature film. My personal favourite track is Can’t Help Falling In Love…

I dont know what all the fuss was about this movie. Its not that good. I have seen the same storyline several times. Must have received extra publicity because it was an Asian movie and they wanted to acknowledge that.

Blech. Rom-Coms. This was pretty bad.

I watched the whole thing and was not completely bored, but I do think realistically this was not a great movie. It never really came across as truly believable, truly sincere, truly moving. The best comparison I can think of (though, as a…

Truly awful film. What a waste of Asian talent in this insipid "romance" movie. Utterly a complete waste of time. Even for free you feel robbed of the time spent watching this drivel.

Visually stunning, over the top rich folks, and a love story (continued in the later books). With respect for the Asian characters--except for those whose wealth allows them to be complete and total crazy. In this time of screaming…

Pretty to watch, pure fantasy otherwise. If you're expecting interesting characters or a story that makes sense look elsewhere.

ok I'm Asian and really, really enjoyed this movie! Loved the cinematography ( Singapore!) loved the food shots! Loved the soundtrack- yep still listening to "Can't help falling in love" and that climactic part- O MG -just so lovely! I…

Basically, I didn't think it lived up to all the hype. Parts were funny & entertaining, but overall it had a lot of predictable fluff. Although the wedding scene was beautiful, most of the scenery was lavish and more interesting than what…

Wow, seriously folks! This film adaptation was so predictable and trite, I had to laugh. Actually I had quite a few good laughs, because it's so much fun to foretell what's going to happen next, and when it actually does, it's a riot! I'm…

This is a very bright and modern romantic comedy. The Goh family is really funny, especially Peik Lin Goh!

Some may say it's just another romantic movie, but it was a bit different. I loved the Asian cast they were great actors. It was worth the long wait just to see it.
