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 expected.
1 November 2001 | by (Sonora, CA) – See all my reviews

Before I saw this movie, I thought it was going to be just a vehicle for Lance and Joey. It actually had a decent story line and great supporting actors in it! Lance was not the cardboard cut out that I was expecting him to be. He was no Paul Newman, but he did a great job for a first try on the big screen.
