A young man meets a girl on a train, only to spend the rest of the movie trying to reunite with her (one of the love-at-first-sight things), aided by his best friend in a quest of posters and signs that soon gains public notice. Will he ever find his soul mate? Written by

In the scenes involving softball, a 12 inch ball and mitts are used. Chicagoans play 16 inch softball without mitts. See more »
You're like the poster boy for the romantically challenged!

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 »
I am not an NSync (spelling?) fan, but this is one of my favorite movies for multiple reasons:
1. It is surprisingly clean. No foul language whatsoever and it is soooo rare to find a PG movie that isn't targeting young kids/families (for those sensitive to this or can appreciate this element).
2. There is a very significant secondary plot about music. In fact, I have this movie to thank for introducing me to the music of Al Green (I also own the soundtrack). The end's a little cheesy, but for someone who also played open mic's at one point, it's nice to indulge a fantasy now and then.
3. Dave Foley's character has some truly funny moments. His stand up roots really shine through.
4. It's not a teeny bopper. Lance Bass and his friends are past their college years, and Lance's love interest just finished grad school.
So with that, it is difficult to predict who the movie was targeting, but it certainly got my attention.
