Continuity mistake: When the little girl runs out to save his father with the "invisible cloak", her mother runs towards the door and it is closed, the shot changes to the street with the girl running, and the door is now open but her mother is yet reach it.

Visible crew/equipment: In the beginning of the scene where Sandra Bullock is lying in bed talking to her maid, you can see the shadow of the boom on the pillow. It is not there very long, the shadow moves out of the scene quickly, but long enough to notice.

Factual error: A key plot point hinges on the Iraqi fellow believing he has shot someone but caused no harm. A brief shot of the bullets he has loaded his revolver with reveals that they are black powder blanks. Such blanks produce large clouds of white smoke when fired (indeed, they are used specifically to produce that effect in movies), but the shooting scene shows no smoke at all.

Trivia: Despite receiving top billing, Sandra Bullock has only six minutes of screen time.

Ria: Graham, I think we got rear ended. I think we spun around twice, and somewhere in there, one of us lost our frame of reference. And I'm going to look for it.

Jean: I am angry all the time... and I don't know why.

Lara: How far can bullets go?
Daniel: They go pretty far but they usually get stuck in something and stop.
Lara: What if they don't?
Daniel: Are you thinking about that bullet that came through your window?

More quotes from Crash

Question: If Det. Graham had already identified his brother's body at the crime scene, why would it have been necessary for his mother to have to do so at the morgue, especially since it was very traumatic for her?


Chosen answer: Since he was directly involved with the investigation, to identify the body would have been a conflict of interest. Therefore he had to notify the next of kin beyond himself.

Question: After the store is trashed, the daughter of the store owner arrives and starts to sort of freak out about the gun. She seems really afraid that someone might have stolen it, and is then relieved when she finds out that it wasn't stolen. She filled the gun with blanks, and didn't even like her father keeping the gun, so why would she care if it was stolen?

Chosen answer: If someone stole it, they could fill it with real bullets and since the gun is registered to her father, it would make him a suspect if someone used it in a crime.
