Overview

A tale of female mid-life crisis, Crush comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio. The closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. English, French, and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a making-of featurette. This is a decent release from Columbia/TriStar that does contain solid picture and sound quality. Those looking for something made outside of the Hollywood mainstream should be interested in this title.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
A contemporary "women's picture" that moves from witty comedy to searing tragedy and back, Crush delves into the complicated dynamics of female friendship with an intriguing candor that might startle anyone expecting another fluffy romantic Brit-com. Playing independent, "older" women increasingly absent from Hollywood fare, Andie MacDowell, Anna Chancellor, and Imelda Staunton trade stories about fortysomething single life with humor and palpable affection. Also in a refreshing deviation from Hollywood stereotypes, MacDowell and young honey Kenny Doughty generate believable heat that turns into real love. Rather than devolving into a competitive catfight over the boy or gratuitous, irredeemable nastiness, the ensuing difficulties expose how complicated the bonds of female intimacy can be. A man may spark the trouble, but he's not the ultimate prize. Though Crush feels like it has several consecutive endings, writer/director John McKay's final payoff gives the film an upbeat, funny conclusion that also remains true to its more knotty sensibility.

Absolutely wonderful. The lies, deception, hatred, anger, misery,joy,excitement, happiness, lust, love, and everything else in between makes up this movie. In many respects it's a definate woman's movie. If you have ever loved and lost whether it be with a friend or lover this movie portrays it all extremely well. There are nothing but surprises and wonderful acting.You get a sense of reality and how life can turn out to be so crazy.

I love love stories and am always looking for a good one. This one stands head and shoulders above most of my favorites. Ken Doughty has the sex appeal and emotional range I melt over. Andie MacDowell is vunerable and wonderful as well. The juicy sex between them is so hot, I'm watching it over and over. This movie is not only a must see but a must own-to be relished and cherished. Thank you Columbia Pictures.
