I absolutely loved this movie! I saw it three times and I could probably see it more if my friends would let me! This might be my favorite movie of the year!! The music, the actor selection, the sets were all amazingly selected, and it just came together so cohesively.
After watching this movie Singapore has moved up on my bucket list of places I must go next. I loved that they actually did the filming in Singapore and they managed to find the most amazing places and they really embodied that these rich characters go all out for any little occasion. My favorite was Ariminta’s wedding, if I was a billionaire I would definitely have the water feature while I am walking down the aisle. It was definitely a dream wedding and I’m so jealous my wedding will never look like that! Also, every time that I watched this movie I really wanted to know what satay tastes like and where I can get some! Honestly all of the food in the movie made me want to visit Singapore immediately and eat all of their food.
You will probably never see me say this again, but most of the changes they made from book to screen I did like. The book had a lot of characters and they were easy to get mixed up and the movie shaved down a lot of parts and I’m okay with that. I did like that they ended up getting engaged at the end but that does not happen in the book (SPOLIER- in the book the mother never gives her approval and Nick and Rachel leave together from Singapore together but not engaged) but I do see why the directors decided to do it because they were unsure if they would get a chance to make a sequel. Plus, the actual proposal scene was so cute! I lose it every time I see the movie and the lady behind Rachel on the plane says yes to Nicks proposal for Rachel. She is more excited than Rachel!
I really do not have any majorly bad things to say about this movie. I really love it. I hope that there is a sequel!
