The Crush
20 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is the story about a little boy. He loves his teacher. He gives a ring for her, and promises to get marry. However she has a boyfriend. They decide their marrying. He does not like that. One night, his father hides the gun in the closet. The little boy sees it. He decides he will kill teacher's boyfriend. What will happen to them??

I like this story. The little boy is so cute. I think this movie is easy to understand, if you cannot understand English. It is because this movie is so kind. Expressions of the little boy are a lot. I like the scene that the little boy is peevish. He said he wants to get marry with his teacher, but he saw she dates with other man. I think he really loves her. I wish they marry when the little boy is able to marry to age.

If you watch this movie, you will be happy. The boy is so cute. Check it out.
