Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians

一群荒誕離奇、陰險腹黑的超級富豪,諷刺又寫實地呈現有錢人家的優越感與家庭矛盾,帶人一窺所謂上流社會最不為人知的瘋狂生活。

當瑞秋・朱答應與男友尼克・楊一同前往新加坡參加友人婚禮、拜訪尼克的家人,她想像的是一個小門小戶的家庭,並期待跟這個將來可能步入禮堂的男人共度兩人時光。
  
沒想到迎接瑞秋的卻是令人瞠目結舌的超級大豪宅,以及一群她所見過最瘋狂古怪的人,更令她意想不到的是,她的男友是亞洲區無人不知、無人不曉的黃金單身漢,有多少女人都盼望著晉升為楊太太,這時的瑞秋理所當然地成為眾矢之的。
  
在新加坡,尼克帶著瑞秋走遍所有他喜歡的地方,置身於這個富豪圈子之中,比起車子,他們更常搭飛機;比起知名觀光景點,他們更喜歡私人度假村。
  
看似享盡榮華富貴的瑞秋卻體驗到了此生經歷過最不堪的羞辱,在有錢人家勢利的眼中,她是一個為錢而跟尼克交往的女人;她是奢望麻雀變鳳凰的心機女……
  
這樣與她格格不入的家庭,瑞秋認真思考與尼克繼續發展下去的可能性,究竟他們能不能打破亞洲傳統「門當戶對」的觀念,攜手走向未來呢?
