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 »

Excellent
27 October 2001 | by (Orlando, Fl) – See all my reviews

This movie is hilarious. It's definately unique to other movies that are out right now because it's a "feel good movie". There's no violence, no swearing.. it's just a lot of fun. Lance Bass will surprise naysayers with his excellent performance. Emmanuelle Chriqui is a great actress and compliments Bass beautifully as they have good chemistry together. It seems like the role of Rod, Kevins best friend was made for Joey Fatone. I couldn't picture anyone better to fill it. Some people may think that the dialogue is cheesy at times, but this movie is definately entertaining.
