"Sex & crashes. 2 great tastes that taste great together. Right."
1 stars (Total Crap)

You see a car crash. What do you do?

You stop your car and have wild, kinky sex with the first person you see, male or female.

Not your answer, you say? Thank Christ.

Welcome to Crash.

It's a movie about people who get off (literally and figuratively) on car crashes. A wee bit twisted? Yep. It's got James Spader, going full throttle creepy on us, Holly Hunter flashing tits for no apparent reason (other than to arouse the person in the car she just ran into) and Deborah Kara Unger looking vaguely like she's comatose.

Plot? Dumb.

Performances? Plastic.

Sex? Not the least bit steamy, especially the interlude between Spader and Elias Koteas. How awkward was that?

Unless you're a fan of bad film, skip it.

I guess a movie about sex and car crashes is better than a movie about necrophilia.
