Storyline

A hopeless romantic (Domhnall Gleeson) thinks he's found true love with an older woman (Christina Applegate), only to learn that she's married and their encounter was merely an instrument of revenge against her neglectful husband (Thomas Haden Church). Initially out for blood, the husband finds himself strangely sympathetic to the romantic's plight. He decides the best way for the two of them to get revenge is by moving in together, cutting her out and living a bachelor's life.

Did You Know?

Trivia

The character of Muumuu, played by Balinder Johal, is based on the landlord Jeremy Catalino had while writing the first draft of the screenplay. In reality, the landlord was Russian, not Indian. The nationality of the character was changed during casting. See more »

Goofs

When Stensland watches the TV show, "Dawson's Creek," which the character claims was recorded onto VHS from its original air-date, the theme song is inaccurate. It's not the original theme song (Paula Cole's "I Don't Want to Wait"), but rather, it's Jann Arden's "Run Like Mad;" an alternative theme song used for the DVD and Netflix releases to avoid paying expensive royalties to Paula Cole.

Domhnall Gleeson brings this film up to a "5" despite a very poor script
26 September 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This would have been a disaster were it not for Domhnall Gleeson who somehow manages to work in his take on the naive nerd looking for true love, who falls for an older married woman (Applegate) only using him for sex to pay back her husband (Hayden Church) for what she perceives is his infidelity.

Gleeson's very good performance allows the audience to bear through an almost unbearable and sophomoric script.

Kudos to Thomas Hayden Church whose impeccable timing adds needed snap to the dialogue.

Editng is notable as well.

Gleeson is an impressive actor, and as he (hopefully) stretches himself into more complex roles, will no doubt discover higher ground upon which he can unfold his talent.

I'm rating Crash Pad a 5 (avoiding a 1 only because of Gleeson, Church and overall snappy editing).

The rest of the cast is wasted on this dog of a a script and 5 is generous.

2017 is going down as one of the worst years for movie releases unless the holiday season comes up big to redeem it.
