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 »

Loved it
27 October 2001 | by (Minnesota, Usa) – See all my reviews

I think that Joey and Lance were great in this movie. I think that the plot was very good and the movie was funny. I plan on seeing this movie again. Both Lance and Joey have good singing voices and I think that it is great that they both get to show off their many talents in this movie.
