    3. Recordbreaking hit sya even in the US for having almost the same sales for 2 weekends.

      Personally i dont see the appeal tho

    4. agree.Kris A. is also the reason why I watched

      Delete
    5. So first week, 7 days total is 82.7 M? That's good!

      Delete
    6. It’s because of the story and all asian cast hindi dahil kay kris ang oa nga nya sana nanahimik nalang cya her role is not relevant, pwedeng hindi kasali sa scene

      Delete
    7. 12:22, oo infainess sa kanya. pero iba pa din yung kilala sa pinas tapos bigla mo nakita sa isang Hollywood film. iba yung feeling and yes I'm talking about krissy. sarap sa feeling :)

    8. Patawa ka teh

    9. 6 days total yata

    10. Kris' role is not that important. We Filipinos should be proud of Nico Santos , a real scene stealer.

      Delete
    11. 1:53 meyged ganyan kayo ka low. they are both pinoys so tumigil ka sa pagiging hater mo!

      Delete
    12. 1:53 gustong maging proud tayo sa pinoy by putting down kris? Okay lang ba utak mo? I watched the film cz i read Kevin kwan's book. Di ko like si kris but in all fairness, mas mapansin pa ang role ni kris kesa ibang supporting casts. Try not to be narrow-minded baks.

      Delete
    13. e di nganga nganga ngayon yung mga bashers ni Kris. Kasi this movie is not about Kris. It is beautiful in its entirety. Ke kilala mo o hindi yung mga characters basta maganda, sumasalamin sa Asian Culture.

      Delete
    14. The character of Kris is meaty in Book 3. FYI, my American friends were impressed with her. TV talk shows were even showing video clips of her. Don’t be ignorant just because you are a hater!

      Delete
    15. May dugong Pinoy lang si Nico. But he is American through and through. Wag na ipilit.

      Delete
    16. Kris' is personal accomplishment na naging extra sya sa epic movie n iyo. Nicole Santos' role is more like a proud to be Pinoy moment.

      Delete
    17. 5:37

      That's not Kris' character. Kris' character was written in, Princess Intan isn't in any book.

      You're talking about Dowager Sultana of Perawak.

      Delete
    18. 537pm. Halatang nag imbento. Lol!

      Delete
    19. American citizen si Nico na nagkataon lang na may Filipino blood. Huwag na kayong makisakay.

      Totoo rin na maraming nanood dahil gustong malaman ang role ni Kris.

      Delete
    20. in fairness na-curious ang mga pinoy sa role ni kris,maski kami dito sa us nanood makita lng din ano ba ang role nya,puno ang movie house.

      Delete
    21. FYI lang born and raised po sa Pinas si Nico Santos, pure pinoy siya at malutong magtagalog. kabatch mate ko sya sa CSA at teenager na sya nung nag migrate ang family nya sa US. And yes proud to be pinoy siya. Daming know it all dito kaka-imbey.

      Delete
    22. sa palagay nyo kaya papanoorin yan dahil kay nico ....kakatawa naman kayo

      Delete
    23. Filipino pa din si Nico anubeh. Wag nyo namang itakwil yung tao lol.

      Delete
    24. One week total of box office ang P87M.

      Delete
    25. Kahit wala si Kris sa movie kikita talaga yan dahil maganda ang story. Lalo sa mga sumubaybay sa book. Patok sa mga Pinoy ang ala-Cinderella story.

      Delete
    26. 1.53 kung hindi napublicize yan ng matindi ni Kris tingin mo kikita yan ng 87M? Andun na tayo may isang pinoy pa pero di naman sya kasing sikat ni Kris. I dont think magiging interesado mga tao sa kanya.

      Delete
    27. American citizen si Nico, hindi Filipino citizen. Kung proud siya sa pagiging Filipino niya, hindi siya magu-US citizen.

      Delete
    28. I have to watch it out of curiosity on Kris role. Kudos to her though.

      Delete
    29. That’s not fair. People go out of the country because for most of us, there’s a better opportunity outside. Hindi porke nag US citizen yung tao, itatakwil na natin anubeh. Lawakan naman ang pag-iisip. Wag utak talangka. ðŸĪŠðŸĪŠðŸĪŠ

      Delete
    30. 4:03, maraming pumupunta sa ibang bansa for better opportunities na hindi nag-papalit ng citizenship. Nothing wrong with either choice kung ano ang gusto mo. Ang sinasabi lang ng mga tao dito ay huwag ng makisakay kay Nico dahil ang nire-represent niya ay US, hindi Pilipinas.

      Delete
    31. Changing your citizenship does not mean you've lost your love for the Philippines. Mas madaming opportunities na maibibigay ang pagiging US citizen kesa sa US Immigrant. Powerful ang passport
      nila. Again, lawakan natin ang pag-iisip.

    4. Yep. Nothing life-changing. It’s like how people found The Greatest Showman so good, pero hindi naman

      Delete
    5. It never claimed to be Gone witj the Wind. Where are you coming from?

      Delete
    6. That’s what you think. Movie of the Book 2 is already being considered.

      Delete
    7. Crazy Rich Asians is shaping up to be one of 2018’s biggest success stories. It has made $76 million so far (P4 Billion) in the US alone.

      Delete
    8. Yes, it's no Gone In The wind, but groundbreaking in terms of having Asian actors as leads in a Hollywood romcom. CRA the film is also groundbreaking because it rejuvenated the romcom genre in Hollywood

      Delete
    9. kawawa naman tong basher na to... mahihiya ang global gross sayo LOL sa pinas palang yan ha ano pa yung sa US at China.

    11. Na-curious ang mga tao sa role ni Kris. Hindi sa role ni Nico.

    2. Hey guys! It is no.1 in the US. And the book is so popular. Though many are curious about Kris , who has a non-significant role.

      Delete
    3. Non-significant man, pinanood pa rin ng mga tao dahil curious sila sa kanya. Effective.

      Delete
    4. totoo di ito papanoorin ng mga pinoy kung hindi dahil kay kris

  4. sa true lang kung hindi sa ingay ni krissy, wala 'to. aminin nyo d masyado patok ito. for sure yu ang dami nanonood d naman nabasa ang book

    ReplyDelete

    1. Sa true lang, if you read the book, gugustohin mo talagang panoorin, not because of Kris. BEST SELLER po yung book kaya patok sa takilya.

      Delete
    2. Give credit where credit is due, which is for Kevin Kwan. I saw the movie coz I read the book and I love the all Asian ensemble.

      Delete
    3. Sa true lang din, hindi naman lahat ng nanonood ay dahil sa nabasa nila ang book. Aminin na natin na may nacontribute ang ingay ni Krissy

      Delete
    4. Ilan lang ba ang nagbabasa ng novel sa panahon ngayon? Sa totoo lang, nanood ako kasi nalaman ko na kasali si Kris. And that's a fact!

      Delete
    5. Hindi nga kumita yung last movie, tapos ngayon sya and dahilan why its popular sa pilipinas? Whatever!!

      Delete
    6. Dito sa Pilipinas malamang malaki naitulong ni Kris kaya to nag hit. Pero certified hit naman din to sa US kahit di naman kilala si Kris dun lol

      Delete
    7. 813... pwede ba wag mo nila la lang yung mga legit readers. Not everyone who watched eh dahil kay kris. Kahit sa us hit yung movie because of the overall casts and gold open movement. Ang babaw mo

      Delete
    8. Pero sa true lang, it's because I watched the book kaya ayoko na panoorin movie. Medyo boring and overdone na kasi yung kwento. I might still watch, though, because of constance wu. I love her in FOTB

      Delete
    9. Susme, naka-ilang flops si Kris bago itong CRA! Halos nagmakaawa para panoorin yung latest movie dito pero nag-flop pa rin! Tapos ngayon sinasabi ng fantards na dahil kay Kris kaya kumita ang movie? Nakakatawa ang mga fantards! Hahaha! Mahiya naman!

    2. 8:14 same here ateng. at kaming mga officemates siya ang pinaguusapan after. yong eksena nya na sobrang ikli pero talagang bongga. eksenadora si princess intan. d ata na gets ng mga tao dito ang significance ng role. so meaning di sila nanood ng bash lang based on what they believe na maliit ang role.

    3. Haven't watched a film in ages (underwhelmed with Hollywood) but I watched it because I was curious to see Kris.

    4. My husband who watched with me ok langyung role ni kris as a way na lalong nag sstep up yung paglaban ni rachel sa mom ni nick pero yung talagang peak/highlight eh nung nag mah jhong na si rachel at eleonor.

  8. The book is already a best seller long before kris got into the picture

    ReplyDelete
  9. Not just because of Kris pero overall maganda ang film. Iba lang talaga sa book pero the production was greatly done. Typical romcom pero may culture kasi sa story na pinapakita. Hindi ko napigilan mapapa-palakpak after ng movie hahaha sorry naging emotional lang

    ReplyDelete
  10. Gasgas na story pero ang ganda ng pagkakagawa! 💕 it!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ano diff ng book at movie? The book was kind of meh kasi for me. Very cliche plot with racist undertones. Tiniis ko tapusin dahil kay astrid and sa story nya. I wanna know if the movie is better than the book? Because book rachel was weak and boring, tbh.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For me, mas maganda ang book. Sa movie kasi is more focused sila kay Nick at Rachel.

      Delete
    2. Same lang bes.

      Pareho tayo. Na bore din ako sa book. Sa movie, pareho din, it focused too much in showing the crazy richness, medyo minadali na yung ending.

      Delete
    3. Baka hindi mo lang ma-gets. It’s an international bestseller, darling!

      Delete
    4. Para sa akin, mas better yung movie. Cut yung mga unnecessary na details na galing sa book.

      Delete
    5. movie is so average nothing extravagant,

      Delete
    6. For me, mas may depth yung pag portray ng characters ng movie kaysa sa book. And tama ka, ang bland ng book rachel. Mas sinubaybayan ko pa nga ya ng story ni Astrid at ni Charlie at saka ni Kitty Pong. lol. Overall maganda yung film and book nakaka goodvibes lang.

      Delete
    7. 5:57 am, saan banda dun ang hindi ka-getsgets? It's not a philosophical book. Did you even read the book? Mala-telenovela yung kwento with rampant name-dropping. And sorry pero kevin kwan doesn't write that well. It has no literary value. Hype nagdala.

      Delete
    8. Thanks, 11:29.

      Delete
    9. 11:55 oh my God! best seller books ni kevin kwan kahit dito sa america, di pa sya magaling nyan ha?! hype lang. talino mo naman! ikaw na ang may literary value and magaling magpuna

      Delete
    10. 1:59 pm, bestselling doesnt mean maganda libro. Madalas nga dyan di kagandahan ang bestsellers kasi kinakagat ng masa. Kakaloka ka bes. Hello sa twilight at 50 shades, diba.

      Tip lang. If you keep letting other people -bestseller lists dictate your ideas of what's good and not, you'll be stuck reading mediocrity.

      Delete
    11. 11:25 baka jan sa pilipinas dahil kahit di magaling na writers, kahit artista na di naman talag writers nagiging best seller. pero wag mo gayahin dito sa america

      wag masyadong maging high and mighty and all knowing na may pa tip ka pa. i read book that interests me, and not because people dictates me or dahil best seller sya.
      cause i read the book before pa sya na hype. and reading CRA doesn’t mean your mediocre. mayabang ka lang dear. kala mo naman ganun kadali magsulat ng novel.
      magsulat ka nga and we’ll see if that will rate

      Delete
    12. Actually tama naman. Making the bestsellers list means madaming bumili. It does not mean magaling pagkakasulat. Kaya nga nag bestseller ang Twilight series.

      I also agree re: CRA book series. They're not literary masterpieces. BUT I don't think they were meant to be that anyway. They're for light, easy reading.

      Delete
    13. 4:39/1:59, 50shades and twilight were US best-sellers, teh. Were you born yesterday?

      Ikaw nagequate ng international bestseller list sa quality. Your only defense of CRA in your hysterical comment was that it made the best-seller list. Ikaw gumawa ng faulty premise, ikaw din namemersonal, pero ikaw pa galit. Calm down. And your smart-shaming falls short of target because sorry, matalino talaga ako.

      Buti pa si 11:44, may sense yung sagot.

  21. Lets be honest. It's a typical "asian" love story. But the execution and portrayal of the characters made it great and beautiful. Super love the mahjong scene!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I dont play mahjong so I didnt get the connection I don’t understand the game so the close up shots of mahjong tiles left me scratching my head.

      Delete
    2. I think maraming synisymbolize ang mahjong sa scene na yun & medyo mahaba ang explanation kung i-isa-isahin pero for me ang pinaka-importante dun is yung dulong part na hawak ni Rachel yung bamboo tile na 8 na pareho nilang winning tile. Alam niya na yun din ang winning tile ni Eleanor at pinili niyang ibigay yun sa kanya. Nung pinakita niya yung tiles niya, dun nakita ni Eleanor na winning tile din dapat ni Rachel yun pero pinili ni Rachel na ibigay ito sa kanya. By giving in, Rachel showed Eleanor gaano niya kamahal si Nick and she also values family kaya siya nagparaya.

      Delete
    3. yeah remember Rachel is a game master. So she knows how to win in a game of chance tulad ng unang pinakita sa University kung saan siya nagtuturo but she gave her winning tile to Eleanor.

  22. I'm a Kris fan but I would admit she's not the main reason why this is a huge hit here. Basically the book/novel already has a built-in followers. Plus buzz dahil nga its a huge blockbuster sa US that made headlines all over the world. But undeniably Kris has help it put over the top.

  23. I saw the movie twice..maganda sya. Galing nilang lahat, including Kris.

    2. 1235 and what is your problem with carmen soo??? Natural ippromote nya dahil kasama din sya sa casting. And kahit ganun role ni carmen as franchesca kita sya agad sa trailer.

      If you follow all the movie casts lahat naman sila nag mega promote even the aunties from SG. OA lang talaga si kris. Si carmen lately nalang yan nag promote and most of her IG last year eh about sa baby nya

      -CRA fan (wag kayong ano dyan)

    3. 12:35 Hindi naman kasi OA sa kayabangan si Carmen Soo. Hindi naman siya nagfeeling- feelingan na siya ang bida. Hindi siya ilusyonada at desperada.

  26. If not for the asian cast, I wouldn't have watched the film. Support for a groundbreaking film. But it's the usual rich boy poor girl story.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Mas lalong malakas sana ang CRA kung wala si Kris. Kini-claim ng fans nya na malakas dahil kay KRis, pero ang totoo, mas maraming hindi nanood dahil sa kanya. 87M gross in one week ay parang pang-local lang. May local movies na umabot agad ng 100M in less than a week lang.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. To be fair, I think si Kris naman nakatulong sa hype ng movie. Now if people watched it because of Kris, yan ang hindi natin masasagot unless me survey sa sinehan isa isa. Add din sa fact na flop mga movies ni Kris before this so di naman na ganun kalakas ang power nya.

      Delete
    2. If not from Kris di ko ito knows. Kaya out of curiousity inaya ko tuloy mga kapamilya ko manood. Happy naman kami sa pinanood namin.
