‘Crazy Rich Asians’ is an all-Asian romantic comedy that now has the award of being the highest-grossing romantic comedy in nearly a decade.
It added another $4.15 million to its domestic total over the weekend, hence the critically-heralded movie now sits at $165.6 million domestically. That bests 2009’s The Proposal, which starred Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, earning $164 million during its theatrical run.
By overtaking The Proposal, the adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s best-selling novel is now sitting at the number six spot all time. Currently, There’s Something About Mary sits at number five ($176.4 million), followed by Pretty Woman ($178.4 million), Hitch($179.4 million), What Women Want ($182.8 million) and the aforementioned box office monster that was My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
