An insipid little movie in which everyone does or doesn't figure out exactly just how racist they are or aren't

Crash pretty much sucked.

I disagree. You could totally see Jennifer Esposito's breasts in it. 4 stars out of 5.

Not being an avid movie goer, I'm always looking for reviews from others. I HATE to spend the time watching movies that end up being a waste of my time. So it is interesting that you give it a thumbs down after a couple of other people gave it a strong go-see (and not for the reasons given by Jeremy). I think I'm inclined to believe your review. I generally don't care much for big budget movies.

The movie is about racism, how racism affects all of us and affects the communities in which we live. It could have been a good movie, but there were only two genuinely bright spots in the film. The rest of it was so contrived, I felt like I was watching a movie with dialogue written by a 12-year-old. Definitely didn't deserve best picture, in my opinion. It's obvious it won for the subject matter, not the content.
