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

Excellent exploration of a writer's mind! I joined IMDb to review this movie.
15 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

Writer seeks inspiration in apartment of 2 college girls. You know the synopsis, or at least you think you do.

Well get ready for some surprises. Crashing follows the minds and imaginations of Richard, Kristin and Jacqueline as they create reality together. Or do they? Through their writing, the scenes of Crashing unfold in a series of parallel stories, intertwined, and interdependent.

Crashing unfolds with multiple threads and explores alternate possibilities. It's almost as if the movie is being written as you are watching it...

This movie is perfection to me. As a writer I saw myself in every scene. Thinking my way through situations. Imagining various outcomes. Creating characters and embellishing. ...Some would call it enhancing reality.

If you are a creative person, and especially if you are a writer, you will appreciate and love this movie. The slow, melodic music winds its way through the movie, carrying you along. Crashing is even better than the French erotic movie, The Swimming Pool, with a similar premise.
