The ruckus around "Crazy Rich Asians" might stir up a feeling of deja vu for those who remember the indie "Better Luck Tomorrow", whose cast included John Cho, who went on to star in another Hollywood movie with Asian-American leads: "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle".

The film opens in Malaysia on August 22.
