Critic Reviews for Crash Pad

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

You'd be forgiven for guessing that Crash Pad is yet another lazy, cable-unworthy comedy full of sorry slapstick and barn-broad humor. And you'll be surprised to discover that it's actually smartly written and expertly pulled off.

October 26, 2017 | Full Review…

While Mr. Tent's direction is serviceable, it's safe. His movie lacks any stylish risks that would make this trio's bad romance memorable, leaving "Crash Pad" to feel like a warm-up act.

October 26, 2017 | Full Review…

A plucky ensemble fails to elevate "Crash Pad," a forced, formulaic revenge comedy about an obnoxious slacker whose new housemate turns out to be the husband of his older ex-mistress.

October 26, 2017 | Full Review…

A broadly appealing bad-behavior comedy relying on the winning chemistry of its two leads.

October 16, 2017 | Full Review…

The film normalizes what they do and hopes we laugh at it because they're "just being boys." Rather than tear down masculinity stereotypes, Crash Pad reinforces them.

November 21, 2017 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

The film's annoying casual misogyny and tiresome bickering derail any consistent comic momentum toward a predictable resolution.

Audience Reviews for Crash Pad

Disappointing. I was interested to see something recent with Christina Applegate, and she's good here, but Stensland was such an off putting dweeb of a character, I just couldn't warm to this story. And my dvd was faulty and jamming up all through the movie. That didn't help either! But mostly just a cringeably bad movie with unbelievable characters.

The type of romantic comedy one might've seen in the 1960's, Domhnall Gleeson, Christina Applegate and Thomas Haden Church all do well as a mismatched trio making some sense of their derailed lives. It's got witty dialogue and an even hand at the director's chair and finally surprises. The last act is strained but this is a work that'll gain its legs with time, and repeated viewings. Well done for all concerned.
