REVIEW: Crazy Rich Asians (2018). The title sounds like it should be offensive, but this maybe the most audacious movie of the summer by daring to court an audience often ignored by mainstream Hollywood movies.

Just a typical romantic comedy that’s the first major Hollywood movie to feature a mostly Asian cast in 25 years.
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 2 pm.
