Los Angelenos meet on Christmas Eve through chance, tragedy, and divine intervention. Velvet Larry is the sleazy owner of the strip club where the glamorous but struggling single mother Rose Johnny dances. Qwerty Doolittle is a shy young mortician who falls in love with her. Randall is the head of a corporate crime organization who tries to convince a former employee just released from prison not to seek vengeance on his former co-workers. Charlie is a suicidally depressed ex-priest. Lexus is a lonely transsexual prostitute who shares an unexpected bond with the former priest. Written by

You can see Forest Whitaker's reflection in glass in the scene where he sits next to his wife on the bench, as if the shot has been taken through a neutral density filter in order to use a large aperture. See more »

This is the price we must pay for the success of "Crash" - atrocious copycat films. This film is slightly better than the similar "The Air I Breathe," but that's not saying much. Bui's script is pretentious and his direction is heavy-handed. He thinks he is creating an emotional powerhouse, but the development is so poor that it is hard to care about the characters. The plot line featuring Whitaker (who now specializes in these types of films) is ludicrous. What's most ludicrous is that Biel and Kudrow (not exactly ugly women) throw themselves at men who reject them. About the only reason for watching this turkey is Biel putting her considerable assets on display.
