Editorial Reviews

This funny and touching story centers on Kate, a forty-year-old respectable and successful headmistress in a small English village who gets together with her single friends, Molly, a doctor, and Janie, a local police detective, every Monday to drink, eat chocolate and decide who is the Saddest of the Week. Things start to turn displeasing between the three friends when Kate begins an affair with Jed, a sexy 25-year old ex-pupil, and is no longer the Saddest of the Week!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings December 31, 2002
By A Customer
I'm still trying to sort through my reaction to this film, so I suppose you could say it hit a nerve. The previews for "Crush" made it seem like such a fun chick flick, so I anticipated it to be just that. And it started as such - funny, brilliant women chatting about life and love (or the lack thereof). And then the sexual heat got turned up with a cute Scottish organist that falls for Andie McDowell. One of the female friends gets jealous/envious, and all hell breaks loose. The film then spirals out of control, going from a sweet, heart-warming romance to a very unhappy set of circumstances. It was such a strange, sad turn, and it put the film into a whole different category. Not at all what I expected, and it was not a pleasant surprise. It really threw me (perhaps that was the intention of the film), and it sort of soured the rest of the experience. I left the film feeling a little cheated and a little disappointed. True, it did make me feel, but I had gone into the film hoping for a fun romp, but came out of it feeling unsettled and sad. Wish the marketing folks would have let the audience know what we were in for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crush January 9, 2003
I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, though it was definitely not the light-hearted comedy I was expecting. As a 25-year-old young professional, I settled into my couch on a rainy weekday night hoping to raise my spirits and de-stress with an old-fashioned romance infused with british humour, a la four weddings and a funeral. I found myself at the end of two hours with tears streaming down my face.
The pluses of the film include the luminous performance by Andie McDowell -- she is concurrently believable as the prim headmistress of a little English town as well as an ethereally beautiful woman with a naughty side -- interesting enough to steal the heart of a younger guy. Her rapport with Kenny Doughty is truly touching (and many woman can reminesce of the time they fell so much in lust and in love with someone not-just-quite-right but oh-so-alluring). Jed, as the quirky little raver boy-slacker, I have to admit, stole my heart.
The minuses -- during the second half of the film, I kept wondering why the director didn't stick to Jed and Kate's story. I sincerely wish someday, he would be inspired to come out with Crush Version 2... not focused on the horrifically catty women Kate calls her friends. And with a happier ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Was CRUSHED! September 23, 2002
By A Customer
This movie is one that if you are a woman,you will enjoy. Crush will induce emotions and start one to really think about friendship and how dangerously controlling it can be if their is no respect. I loved the music that went along with the movie and the plot was full of unexpected twists and turns. Three professional women, single, in their 40's are friends is a beautiful english countryside town. One of these three women falls deeply in love with a very handsome, charasmatic, sensous, caring man. His downfall? He is years younger then she. Instead of being happy for her, the other two scramble their lives so that it is their complete mission to wreck this beautiful relationship between a man and a woman. Unfortunatly, they will stop at nothing. Crush keeps you in tow until the very end, and I would suggest keeping a box of tissue handy. Crush will evoke many feelings, and shows the dismay of what base friendship is: cruelty, jealousy, disrespect, and irreversable pain. This movie will move you to realize that there is so much more to friendship and perhaps it will allow one to realize that respect is a crucial factor in any friendship. There is an almost amazing transformation of characters and surpising amount of forgivenss and healing taking place. Crush will keep you wondering until it's perplexing conclusion. Andie MacDowell and Kenny Doughty have an amazing on screen charisma, and Kenny Doughty is a very handsome young British actor full of life, acting as "Jed" he did an excellent job portraying this young man. I loved it and will defintly look for more movies with Kenny Doughty in them!

I was not familiar with "Crush" previously--but with Andie MacDowell, Imelda Staunton, and Anna Chancellor as the stars, I decided to give it a try. It is a surprisingly well made picture with some very nice performances. Ostensibly billed as a romantic comedy, the movie tries to be too many things to too many people. With a shifting focus and tone throughout, it isn't wholly successful and some of it's parts have more impact then the overall film does.

The film begins as a genial buddy comedy, shifts a bit into a surprisingly mean spirited romantic comedy, then into a heavy drama, and back into warm lightheartedness. It's a bit uneven, which is unfortunate because there are a lot of great qualities within this picture. I can't help but think that if "Crush" hadn't been quite so schizophrenic--maybe been a light romantic drama with comedic elements--I would have loved this movie.

By far the most successful element within "Crush" is the romance. I'm not typically known for my soft heart, but I found the relationship formed between Andie MacDowell and Kenny Doughty very believable and well done. MacDowell is a school headmistress, and Doughty a former pupil--so there is about a 20 year age difference between them. From the tentative flirting, to the sexual liaison, to the discovery of real love--I thought these two were great. Had the whole picture been focused on this story, I'd have been with it wholeheartedly.

However, there is a mean streak to these characters as well. And while this isn't totally unbelievable, I found it somewhat unnecessary. Anna Chancellor, especially, as MacDowell's best "friend" doesn't believe this May/December romance will work.
