This week, Glenn and Daniel are joined by special guest Cheryl Hou to review Crazy Rich Asians, the first American studio film in 25 years to feature a predominantly Asian and Asian-American cast. Be warned: This film will be compared to both Love Actually and Fifty Shades, emerging mostly unscathed from the experience (71:37).
