Audience Reviews for Crashing

How the hell did this movie get made? It falls into the assumption that a middle-aged-lech fantasy is any less of a middle-aged-lech fantasy just because it's diluted and overanalyzed with writerly pretension. I did like Lizzy Caplan of Mean Girls though. She's quite the chameleon.

Totally up-itself, self indulgence as it pats itself on the back from beginning to end. Decent performances save it from being bad but, alas, not from being boring. Izabella Miko stands out as usual.

I skipped through the chapters of this movie. It was slow and ridiculous, but for some reason I wanted to know how it ended. Even the ending was disappointing - what a waste of time.
