  1. Crush is the kind of movie that gives friendship a bad name.
  2. The kind of movie that gives "chick flicks" a bad reputation.
  3. Begins as a captivating romantic comedy and then, at the very moment it's most involving, takes a wholly gratuitous and disastrous swerve and just keeps on going from bad to worse.
  4. 20
    What’s striking about John McKay's feature debut is how much contempt toward his female characters the writer-director manages to pack into 115 minutes.
  5. 20
    Never good, Crush takes a turn for the worse when it takes a turn for the serious. Its attempt to drop cartoon comedy for cartoon tragedy essentially thrusts the characters from Cathy into the panels of Mary Worth.
  6. Oddly off-balance, estrogen-powered dramedy.
  7. 20
    Loquacious and dreary piece of business.
  8. It's about women, but as written and directed by a man, it appears to make no emotional sense at all. It treats women like idiots.
  9. 0
    The most depressing movie I've seen all year; in fact, I'm hard-pressed to name a movie aimed specifically at women that has ever made me feel as insulted and disgusted.
  10. Manipulative tragedy, muddled motivations, incongruous reconciliations, deranged cuteness, all of it directed with a tin ear and laden with a score that evokes the experience of a conditioned lab rat.
