Three best friends get together and bury a box, making a pact to open it at midnight at their high school graduation. In the small 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. On the night of their graduation, they open the box and they strike up a conversation. Suddenly, 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 Los Angeles, Lucy (Britney Spears) falls in love with Ben and against her father's wishes, she stays and she goes to the audition. Written by Kara

Interesting movie
16 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

I bet when you read that heading, you wanted to read what I had to say, because everybody slated it before me. I must admit to my shame, I went to see this movie with some friends because Britney dances around in her underwear. I don't normally do that, but hey.

This movie has it all, the babes, the love story, the road trip, the friendship, sexual awakening, teenage pregnancy etc. I mean if you were to pitch this film to a film academic thy would say that you have included all classical devices for a successful movie. HOWEVER!!! There is a fine line in movie making when a story stops being interesting and starts becoming corny. Crossroads crosses that line severely.

If you ever wondered what the difference between a good and a bad movie is, this is it: There is no difference between a good and a bad movie. A good movie can walk the line, a bad movie crosses the line. Watch any brilliant road trip movie and then go watch crossroads, you will see what I mean.
