Hailed as a 'spectacular comedy' this film is a romcom with a difference.  It's plot is traditional enough - Rachel is the Cinderella rags-to-riches heroine - but, with a few minor exceptions, the entire cast is Asian, a watershed moment for Hollywood.  It's pure escapism, set in Singapore's most luxurious locations where money will buy you anything and everyone is beautiful.  There's more than a hint that this is a version of 'When Harry met Meghan'.
