Crush

A trio of middle-aged ladies get together each week to eat, drink, smoke and bitch about men. American Andie MacDowell leads an otherwise all-British cast. One day, our heroine meets a 20-something stud and starts having economy-sized sex, leaving her nothing to bitch about with her friends. Driven by either concern or jealousy, her pals try to bust up the affair. The film tries to be a Bridget Jones-style look at sex and friendships, but everyone behind the camera is so enamored with the idea of middle-aged girl power that they can't see what a mean-spirited film they should be making. MacDowell does some of her best work, really. If only the filmmakers hadn't been so intent on providing feel-good fluff. 112 minutes
