My ‘vag’* is Chef Chu, your ‘vag’ is frozen takeout dim sum from some hole in the wall under the bridge in Foster City

New York Times mentions crazy Rich Asians but does not mention Jon Chu until deep into the story, whereas Palo Alto Weekly gives it two- an-a-half stars but does not have a byline. *i think that word, rhymes with Madge the dish soap spokeswoman, is fair game given the role (French word with little thingy over Sarah vowel) Awkwafina plays in this movie. The wedding costs $40m.
Rolling Stone praises Nora Lim pka Awkwafina. (I admit, as I wrote about earlier, that a main reason I saw Ocean movie was curiousity about Lum, whose other claim to fame was a quasi-dirty rap spoof about female anatomy. That, plus I’m always talking where appropriate about Mindy Kaling my fellow Dartmuthian)
A.O. Scott excerpt:
The venue is fabulous — if there is any part of Singapore that is less than dazzlingly picturesque, we don’t see it here — the music is great, and the food includes homemade dumplings, street-stall delicacies and lavish banquet dishes. But the key to this party is surely the guest list. It has been noted that this is the first Hollywood movie in a long time with a mostly Asian and Asian-American cast, and if anything this observation understates the diversity of the performers onscreen, in terms of both their origins and their pop-cultural affiliations. They include Michelle Yeoh, one of the great international movie stars of the past quarter-century; Ken Jeong, a staple of naughty American comedy for almost as long; and Awkwafina, a hip-hop artist, actress and web celebrity of more recent vintage.
