The Crush is a 1993 American erotic thriller film written and directed by Alan Shapiro, which stars Cary Elwes as Nick Eliot and Alicia Silverstone as Adrian Forrester, in her feature film debut. It was filmed on location from September 24 to November 20, 1992, in Vancouver, Canada.
In editing the film for broadcast TV, the character of the Forrester girl's name was changed to Adrian after a lawsuit against Shapiro by the real-life Forrester. The VHS and laserdisc versions of the film still use the original name, but DVD releases and later cable/satellite airings also change the name to Adrian. The plot of The Crush was based on an actual incident involving the neighbor of writer Shapiro.
