Critical response

The overall critical response was mixed. They generally agreed that it was a play-by-play remake, the greatest complaint from critics was that it replaced the original's dark comedy and grit with juvenile humor and visual gags.[2]
Roger Ebert, in the critical minority with this title, gave it a "Thumbs Up",[3] defending it later in his Chicago Sun-Times review as a film that "...more or less achieves what most of the people attending it will expect." In the print review, Ebert beseeches his readers to "...seek out a movie you could have an interesting conversation about", citing films not in wide release such as Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist and Kontroll, until finally encouraging his readers to "drop any thought of seeing anything else instead" if they can see Crash.[4]

Awards

.The film also earned Chris Rock a BET Comedy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Theatrical Film.^ Unfortunately, the pace and comedy elements (provided by Chris Rock) are poor by the above standards.
