What were they smoking when they made this crap
3 July 2003 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most retarded movies ever made. There was no plot or substance to the story. The acting by almost every single person in the film was so horrible, I almost lost my lunch. Everyone had no feeling or emotion, they looked like robots reading a retarded script. I don't think anyone involved in the production of this movie was taking this s**t seriously. I don't even think they had a director, they just shot the crap and didn't do any retakes. Which is probably a good idea anyway, because it would've been a waste of film. The cameos were even worse and had nothing to do with the story. Britney spears had two lines and we're supposed to say, "wow, Britney is funny and she can act." I also didn't recognize any of the boy bands beside Nsync. I was saying to myself, "Who the f**k are those people, don't tell me they're supposed to be famous." The songs were horrible too. Even the one at the end, with that guy I think was one of the Hanson brothers. Most of these pop stars are out of the spotlight and the music business now, which is probably a good thing. When they saw the finished product of this movie, they should have burned it and destroyed all evidence of the production. This was truly a piece of s**t and it made me want to go on a homocidal rampage for all the time and the braincells I lost.
