This is a Crash movie. You know the type, little stories that eventually come to make some kind of common sense. The actors are playing great, even Brendan Frasier, who usually lands the most uninspired roles does a great one here. Actually, given the time on the screen, I would say he plays the lead role.
Anyway, I could have gotten around the obvious holes in the plot if it presented any kind of interesting idea. The background music that tried to convey all sort of emotions, but ended up being pretentious and out of place didn't help either.
Bottom line: if not for the great cast, the movie would have sucked big time.
