One Of The Worst Movies Ever Made Is Currently Dominating The Box Office. It’s Raking In Cash

“Crazy Rich Asians” has continued to absolutely dominate the box office.

The Hollywood Reporter recently reported:

Jon M. Chu’s groundbreaking film has become the most successful Hollywood studio romantic comedy in nearly a decade at the North American box office after finishing the long Labor Day with an estimated total of $117 million, besting the $110.2 million earned domestically by Amy Schumer’s 2015 pic Trainwreck.

Crazy Rich Asians boasts the top showing for a rom-com — an endangered genre, at least on the big screen— since Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds’ The Proposal earned $164 million in North America in 2009, not adjusted for inflation.

First off, congratulations to everybody involved with making this film, and props to them for all the success. You always like to see people get their money. You never want to see people fail, and this situation isn’t any different.

Having said all that, this movie was complete trash. I had some time to kill with my mom Monday, so we decided to catch a showing after I had lunch at Culver’s. All I’d heard was about how great this movie was. It was apparently the greatest thing since electricity was invented. People wouldn’t stop talking about it. I had to find out for myself.

For those of you who don’t know, the plot of the film, according to IMDB, is: “This contemporary romantic comedy, based on a global bestseller, follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu to Singapore to meet her boyfriend’s family.” You can watch the trailer below.

I really wish that I’d stayed home and watched paint dry instead. “Crazy Rich Asians” was one of the worst movies I’d ever seen. It’s that simple. It’s not funny, the rom-com storylines are cringe-worthy, and I hate myself for not walking out within the first ten minutes.

It’s such a shame that people are acting like this movie is so incredible. It’s not, and I would encourage all of you to run as fast as you can from ever having to see it. The film is truly that awful.
