4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, Not so great DVD November 28, 2002
By Ryan
The Crush; The story of a girl obsessed with a 28 year old newspaper editor who is renting a house above the garage in Seattle. Alicia Silverstone plays Adrian who can't help but be in love with Nick (Cary Elwes). Nick's girlfriend/co-worker Amy (played wonderfully by Jennifer Rubin) feels that Adrian is too attached to Nick. At first Nick is unaware of the crush but when Adrian hurts her best friend;Cheyenne (Amber Benson) and attempts to kill Amy buy locking her in a dark room with a sudden bee infestation he finally figures out that something has to be done. Great movie. Now the DVD: Has only an INCOMPLETE credits list for 3 of the stars and a bunch of trailers FOR OTHER movies. The sound is great, as is the picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'The Crush' is an excellent thriller! May 21, 2000
By Shaun
Format:VHS Tape
As a die hard Alicia Silverstone fanatic, I bought 'The Crush' with high hopes. Although harrassed by the critics, a shocking discovery was placed on my hands: it's an excellent movie. Sexual obsession and childish innocence form as one, creating Darian (Silverstone). Nick (Elwes), realizing the harm headed his way when Darian reveals her "crush", gets caught up in a violent swirl of events that lead to the ultimate finale in which Silverstone's acting abilities shine through. 'The Crush' was no waste of cash and the movie cover is to DIE for! Those glasses...those pouting lips...that evil glare. For true excitement, rent 'The Crush' today.

2.0 out of 5 stars A predictable, derivative thriller January 24, 2005
Some films can easily be described as "x meets y." These usually aren't very good films. In this case, the movie is a blend of Lolita and Fatal Attraction. Nick Elliott (Cary Elwes) is an investigative journalist new in town who needs a place to stay and work, so he ends up renting the guest room of a fairly well-off family in the suburbs. He catches the eye of Adrian (Alicia Silverstone), their gifted fourteen year-old daughter. Her "crush" on Nick develops at a breakneck pace. She pesters him constantly, in person and on the phone, tries to seduce him when they're alone, and becomes insanely jealous of anyone else he spends time with, particularly a female photographer he's currently working with.

Unless you didn't watch any movies in the last twenty years, you can probably see where it's going. As far as thrillers go, Fatal Attraction is probably the most imitated. Malicious, Swimfan, if you've seen any of these you won't be surprised by The Crush. There's a lot of sub par acting from people capable of much better, and incredibly cheesy writing. The only reason to watch this film would be to see Silverstone being sexy, although seeing Elwes slug her and send her flying across the room almost makes it all worthwhile.

The DVD contains trailers and cast bios.

4.0 out of 5 stars Silverstone's Amazing Debut! February 4, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The Crush is an excellent film mainly because of the very talented Alicia Silverstone. This was her first film?! She steals every single scene she's in with movie star magnatism. This film is much more interesting to watch than either Fatal Attraction or Single White Female, in fact, they don't even compare. Do NOT miss The Crush!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior to any movie I've ever seen! November 24, 2003
By Ryan
Nick Eliot has everything going for him. A new job and a new place to live: the guest house of the upperclass Forrester family: dad; Cliff, mom; Liv and 14 year-old-daughter; Adrian. Everything is perfect. But that's about to end very soon.
When Nick meets Adrian, it was love at first sight. For her anyway. She gives him gifts and tries to seduce him. He is obviously clueless to her obsession.
One night at a party of the Forrester's, Nick drives Adrian out to a lighthouse where she kisses him. He suddenly realizes that this can't happen and she's had a "thing" for him all along.
Nick gets a job at Pique magazine: a semi-tabloid. He meets Amy Maddik there, a photographer for the mag. They become an item. This becomes a dangrous problem to Adrian, who has been seemingly rejected by Nick.
After he finds out that Adrian has broken into his house, scratched the word "(beep)sucker" onto his car and snoops around the place, Nick decides to leave. That doesn't mean he can.
Adrian's friend, Cheyenne knows about Adrian's bad side. But before she tells Nick, she fell off her horse that was rigged by none other than: Adrian.
Adrian discovers that Nick and Amy have slept together and the next day, Amy is discovered almost dead in her blackroom from thousands of bee stings....and Adrian is the obvious culprit.
Adrian invites Nick to her horseshow where she will be performing. After he doesn't show, she appears at a public event hosted by Pique magazine where she slaps him in the face infront of everyone and saying "Too busy kissing ass to care about me, Is that it?". He takes her outside and tells her to stay away from him and there is nothing between them.....

3.0 out of 5 stars Darian or Adrian? June 20, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I just watched this recently and was shocked to find out they changed Alicia Silverstone's character's name in the movie and searched high and low to find out why. I found this bit of trivia at IMDB. In case you were wondering..."When "The Crush" was edited for TV, Alicia Silverstone's character's name changed from Darian to Adrian. Screenwriter Alan Shapiro had based the film on actual events that happened to him, and ended up being sued by the girl he wrote about, who had the same name as his "fictional" character!"

Remembered as a kid that this movie was thrilling, with twists and turns. Remembered wrong. Unless you enjoy looking back on fashion and cinematography, skip it.

The Crush is a film I used to watch often back in the day. Filmed with Alicia Silverstone was still considered "in", it helped revitalize the slightly dying thriller genre. Read more
