Crush Love Andie MacDowell disappointed in the video quality
Verified purchase
Video quality is horrible. Every time the camera moves the video is distorted. Checked other videos to be sure it wan't the internet connection working great. Not sure why they put this out there.

GREAT BITTERSWEET ROMANTIC COMEDY
Verified purchase
More of a chick flick to watch with female friends as that's what this movie is about, how women navigate romantic
relationships with the support, sometimes unwanted, of their friends.

It's about women who are in 30's who have achieved much, kept their female friends and how they help each other on their journey.

Proper Headmistress Takes a Leap...into Love
Verified purchase
[[ASIN:B00006ADD0 Crush]] is a delightful romp that reveals the bond of sisterhood between three forty-something women living in rural England. They get together, eat junk food, smoke, drink and commiserate...nothing could possibly break this bond. Right?

Until one of them (Kate,the headmistress played by Andie MacDowell) finds unexpected love with a former (twenty-something) student. At first, the "girls" are amused; but then when it seems that Kate's feelings contain as much love as lust, the conspiring begins.

Imelda Staunton and Anna Chancellor play the co-conspirators, who will do whatever it takes to get their friend back in the fold.

Tragedy follows, and then comes a powerful disconnect between the three friends...But just when all seems lost, an unexpected blessing brings the three back together into their tight-knit bond, but with a new and fresh perspective.

Somewhat predictable sisterhood flick...hence, the four stars.

Crush - One Of My Very Favorite Films
Verified purchase
Don't ask me why, but I watch this dvd over and over and over. Something about Kenny Doughty's accent and the way he takes out his gum before he makes love in the car. Tee hee!

Andie MacDowell is perfect in this older woman younger man romance. The ending is truly tragic and sad and more than a little insipid. But the story is full of magic and it is really too bad the writer did not find a way to memorialize that instead of turning it into a weeper. The beginning and middle though is so beautiful, it makes up for a lot. I love this dvd. It always makes me happy for days...and it makes me look at men differently.

A director destroys his own work (I know... Exactly!)
Verified purchase
Kenny Doughty gives a movingly sweet performance, and this gay man instantly fell in love. For the first 70 minutes, this is a charming story about a 25-year old organist totally in love with a bubbly 40 year old woman. She has some unsavory 'best friends' who are bent on keeping Macdowell for themselves (particularly the nasty Sapphic gynecologist), and develop ever nastier ways to discredit her new love interest. When their poison finally taints her own feelings for him, she throws him out, and he gets killed in the dark by an oncoming truck. Instead of realizing what violence she has done to an innocent, angelic guy, she talks trash over wine for the final 40 minutes with these despicable vipers. Take the stupid girlie talk you find in 'Sex in the City' and make it 20 times stupider. Writer/director McKay needs to recall this film, and give it a proper ending, one in which the repulsive doctor gets her comeuppance, and where Macdowell repents for the gargantuan betrayal of a sweet young man who sought only to love her. Mr. McKay, how could you tear this promising work to pieces out of sheer boredom? Just despicable.
