Dresses were created by the patriarchy to suppress women!!!!!!!


They put all five women in full dress, but three of the women were dressed as undercover for the heist. They just had to have their entrance.



For most of the heist, Awkwafina was dressed like this. The idea that she would risk being caught by changing into full regalia halfway through was probably one of those ridiculous twists that made so many critics dislike the movie


The return on the budget is strong enough that there will probably be a sequel.
Production Budget: $70 million
Domestic: $140,218,711
+ Foreign: $157,500,000

I never heard of Awkwafina before this movie and will probably never hear from her again unless a sequel is made

She was great in Crazy Rich Asians
Her scenes were the best part of the movie
Probably have a big part in the sequel, China Rich Girlfriend
She hosted SNL recently

Of course, that's what women want to see. Their private lives mirrored on the screen.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

I don't think so. She is a big find of the year with a small part in Crazy Rich Asians. I expect you will be seeing her a lot.


Crazy Rich Asians is in many ways more of a success than Ocean's 8 since it cost so much less to make and it made more money domestically.
Production Budget: $30 million
Domestic: $174,532,921
+ Foreign: $64,000,000

Ocean's 8
Production Budget: $70 million
Domestic: $140,218,711
+ Foreign: $157,500,000

Ocean's Eleven
Production Budget: $85 million
Domestic: $183,417,150
+ Foreign: $267,300,000

Ocean's Twelve
Production Budget: $110 million
Domestic: $125,544,280
+ Foreign: $237,200,000

Ocean's Thirteen
Production Budget: N/A (rumoured to be $85 million)
Domestic: $117,154,724
+ Foreign: $194,157,900


Next weekend will be the Sundance Film Festival world premier of "Paradise Hills" starring 5 female stars and one male star: Awkwafina, Emma Roberts, Danielle Macdonald, Hailee Steinfeld, Eiza González, Milla Jovovich, and Jeremy Irvine.

I thought it was because women
have to squat to pee and that's
terribly inconvenient if you're
wearing pants.

Fixing my post:

I never heard of Awkwafina before this movie and will probably never actively avoid hearing from her again unless a sequel is made

Did you see Crazy Rich Asians?
Its a pretty good movie
Awkwafina was the best thing in the movie.
She stole every scene she was in
