“These people are so posh and snobby, they’re snoshy.”
Rachel Chu is happy to accompany her longtime boyfriend, Nick, to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. She’s also surprised to learn that Nick’s family is extremely wealthy and he’s considered one of the country’s most eligible bachelors. Thrust into the spotlight, Rachel must now contend with jealous socialites, quirky relatives and something far, far worse — Nick’s disapproving mother.

MUSICAL GUEST: Mating Ritual
Mating Ritual is an independent pop duo based in Los Angeles, California. Previously known as Pacific Air, Ryan Marshall Lawhon founded Mating Ritual in 2014 when his brother Taylor decided to go back to school. Initially a solo project, Ryan became increasingly more collaborative leading up to the debut album, 2017’s How You Gonna Stop It?, where the brothers realized they missed creating music as a duo and immediately began work on Mating Ritual’s sophomore album, the post punk leaning, critically acclaimed Light Myself On Fire.
As part of a one time joke that’s becoming reality, the brothers jumped ahead of schedule on their 5 albums in 5 years plan, finishing a third LP only months after LMOF. Named after their least favorite hashtag, Hot Content refines the sounds and ideas created on the first two albums, fusing the pop sensibilities of the debut with the more artistic impulses of their sophomore. Hot Content is slated for release May 10, 2019, on Ryan’s own label, Smooth Jaws.
