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 expected from a boyband
3 November 2001 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

The movie while highly anticipated by my younger sibilings did not strike me as some movies do. I figured that the story would be guy loses and then finds girl. Which don't get me wrong it is, but it was more developed than that. Now most would automatically shrug the movie off because two Nsyncers star in it, but you should never judge a book by it's cover or in this case a movie by its actors. Lance Bass did a great job, and well the sense was given that Joey was practically playing himself. The movie does have some crude humor, but the average child would not understand, and there is one curse word but you have to pay close attention to catch it. Anyway its a must see movie for the hopeless romantic. For all you ladies it's the type of movie where the main character is the guy of your dreams. Plus there is an extra unpublicised ending. Above all it's a cute and sweet movie. A+A+A+A+A+
