Crazy Credits

Just as the credits begin, there is a sound effect for the reels stopping and then titles signifying a "Behind the Scenes" of On the Line appear. We see Lance Bass and Emmanuelle Chriqui in their respective make-up chairs along with a cameo of two make-up artists, played by Justin and Chris from NSync. They exchange "N'Sync is N-Stink" comments with praises for Kevin. See more »

Better than I thought
2 March 2002 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

When I first heard of this movie being made, I thought, "O-kay, now *NSync is doing movies? It will probably suck! Why don't they just stick to singing?" We've all seen movies like this- singers trying to crossover into acting, and most of the time the movie flops. But this movie was different- it was actually good. The acting was great, the comedy was excellent, and I found myself shouting out, "Get the girl's number or something!" at the key moment in the beginning. I wish more people would give this movie a chance. People might think this movie is geared for preteen girls because it does star two members of *NSync-but I think more guys would relate to this movie- I know I sure did.
