Vanity project for Lou Pearlman
23 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of those so bad it's funny movies...

There's no point in even pretending to take this movie seriously...

It is what it is..

It's about cute guys!!! Cute guys!! and the exploitation of the junk music that they sing..

To think that Lou Pearlman, that sleaze, probably had his way with most of the boy-band kids in this movie, since he created them... from NSYNC to O-Town.. the entire Transcontinental family of boy bands... I swear, if I was a rich, sleazy, fat slob who lusted after teen young men... that's how I'd get them... I'd start a management company to develop boy bands.. I can see it now ("sure, you're talented, but so are other guys who don't mind making an old man happy from time to time..... now think about how much you want that musical career.... so sign the contract, so I will promote you to death, work you to death.. and take All your money..... and I will own you....)

I still can't believe that NSYNC participated in this... weren't they beyond things like this in 2000? Didn't they already separate from Lou Pearlman by then....? Or did this movie trigger all the "get me out of here" lawsuits...

One cameo after another featuring bad puns related to that person's career..

Longshot is what it is... a bad movie that doesn't pretend to be what it's not
