Three friends get together and bury a box making a pact to open it at midnight at their high school graduation. In the little town in Georgia that they live in, things soon change. One is little miss perfect, one is an engaged prom queen, and the other is a pregnant outcast. The night of graduation, they open the box and they strike up a conversation. All of a sudden, one brings up the topic of her going to Los Angeles for a record contract audition. They all decide to go together and they leave. With a little money, they set out on the road with a guy named Ben. When one of them tells the other a rumor that he might be a homicidal maniac they are all scared of him. When they reach LA, Lucy (Britney Spears) falls in love with Ben and against her father's wishes, she stays and she goes to the audition. Written by
Dan Aykroyd created a detailed back-story for his character and his life in the navy. He even had a friend draw a navy tattoo on his arm (which can be seen in the scene where he is working on the car in the garage). See more »
In the diner scene while Lucy is figuring out if they have enough money, Ben is eating some food. Between shots, a piece of bread is in his mouth, then in his hand, then in his mouth again. See more »
Crossroads is not a good movie by any means. Its predictable, cliched, stupid, cheesy and corny. Some of the scenes who are supposed to be taken seriously are laughable.The plot is stupid and the script yes not very good either. But this film is enjoyable on some levels. As for Britney. Her acting was not all that bad. She was actually the only one who was decent in this film. And I am no Britney Fan. She was not good but she was not bad and I Have seen worse. However the other actors were either bad or terrible.
