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.

Stensland's apartment was built and filmed in a large battery factory in Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada. 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.

Surprisingly hilarious
25 November 2017 | by atbakerstreetbSee all my reviews

On the surface, Crash Pad is the typical men are like this/women are like that/nothing matters just get laid comedy, but there's more to it than what meets the eye at first glance.

The acting is frankly brilliant. Domhnall Gleeson's comedic genius really shines through; I can't wait to see more of him in this genre. His chemistry with Haden Church is hilarious, and Christina Applegate's emotional performance makes you feel for her cardboard-character.

The script tries too hard at times, but the one-liners are very memorable, and the jokes that land land hard. I loved how over-the-top and self-aware it was; the best comedies are always comedies of comedies.

I'm not sure who the target audience was. Fans of romcoms might find it offensive; romcom haters might find it too silly and clichéd; but if you don't have expectations and let this movie surprise you, you'll have a fun time.
