The Crush: Blu-ray Vs. TNT TV Version


In 2001, TNT had aired an extended and alternate version of The Crush. This version contained several deleted and extended scenes that have not been officially released on DVD or Blu-ray, while also being cut down for violence. The TV versions were also the first time that had Alicia Silverstone’s character name changed from “Darian” to “Adrian”. This was before DVD and Blu-ray releases had also changed the character’s name in accordance to a lawsuit by the real-life counterpart of Darian Forrester. The quality of the TNT TV version is notably lower compared to the Blu-ray release.

    love, truth, and justice. If i were schizophrenic i could not formulate
    a pure thought like a child. And i take advantage of this website and other sites to give a message to those who love the truth and seek it with their heart.

    I have a question for you: christophernguyen726
    Why do you live, what is the purpose of your life?
