Storyline

Richard McMurray's first novel was a success, but his second novel is sitting unfinished on his computer in his house, which his wife just locked him out of. After a speaking engagement at a local college, Richard accepts the invitation from two sexy college students to crash on their couch. He should only be there for a day or two but legal battles with his soon-to-be ex-wife, pressures from his editor and publisher, and more importantly, his new-found inspiration just might keep him there longer. He's using them as his muses, they're using him for writing guidance, but what are they all supposed to do about that sexual tension? Written by napierslogs

It feeds the creative soul
27 December 2008 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

A handsome middle aged man and two beautiful young women just came to live together, all three striving to picture a book character of each other, in a tense but fresh relationship for all involved.

The body nudity was replaced by some embarrassing conversation and the sex was replaced by invasion into personal space, and everything happens in a light mood.

So, don't expect "Crashing" to be a movie for your sexual hormones or your fears, it isn't for your brain either, if you are a writer or do any other form of creative work it will be 75 minutes of pleasure.

The original music fits perfectly and the acting is good.
