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 »

Cute Romantic Comedy
29 March 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Coming into this movie I think I expected a lot. The story line was really well played out but the acting got to me after awhile. I am an 'N Sync fan but not all singers are meant to be actors. I had a hard time thinking of Lance Bass as anything but a singer, and his acting skills weren't all that convincing otherwise. At times, it appeared to be just him reading the lines. Don't get me wrong though, I enjoyed the movie because it was a very cute romantic comedy. I just had a hard time overlooking the actors' abilities.

But I would suggest this movie to any romantic comedy lover. And the movie had a really good story line as well as comedy! :-D
