Storyline

Spring break in Miami is the scene. It's where surf-drenched guys cruise girls in bikinis and raucous parties rule day and night. It's the perfect time and place for three young women from Texas and a trio of college guys from Pennsylvania to find adventure and maybe even fall in love. In a Texas dive bar, Kelly is singing her heart out to a few local yokels when her best friends Kaya and Alexa try and tempt her away for some fun in the Florida sun. It's an easy sell--even for the cautious Kelly - and the three head for Miami. Making their way to the same destination is the "Pennsylvania Posse": college students Justin, Brandon, and Eddie. Justin and Brandon are smooth-talking party promoters, while Eddie's primed to meet Lizzie, the cyber dream girl he's been e-mailing for months. Miami Beach, beating with a rhythm all its own, is teeming with beautiful people. Kelly's friends are drawn into the beachside fun, while Kelly tentatively navigates a sea of strangers. When her eyes meet ... Written by Sujit R. Varma

Trivia

During filming on the beach in Miami, Florida, Kelly Clarkson would simply lie down in the sand and take a nap, rather than walking over to her chair, in the shade. See more »

Goofs

When Kelly gave Justin her phone number, she used an area code from Texas (972) which is where they are all from. But when Alexa later gave Justin a phone number for Kelly she gave her own cell phone number. She used the area code 239 which is actually in Florida. See more »

a movie that achieves the impossible
1 August 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

After 23 years a movie comes along and achieves what I previously thought was impossible. "From Justin to Kelly" usurps "Can't Stop the Music" as the worst musical of all time. It even surpasses such landmark musical turkeys as "Grease 2", "At Long Last Love", "Staying Alive" and "Lost Horizon".

The two "leads" have no charisma, no screen presence and no acting ability. Their first movie will probably be their last. Just because a person can be successful in music, doesn't mean they have talent in the acting department. Madonna has proved this theory.

The movie contains some of the most banal dialogue in film history. The screenplay isn't underwritten but unwritten. Calling the music "forgettable" would be a kindness. The choreography is also inept.

After rubbing my eyes in disbelief and removing my earplugs, I was astonished to note that film's running time was only 81 minutes. However, it felt like 3 hours. Needless to say I will not be subjecting myself to the "extended version."

"From Justin to Kelly" is simply a slapdash quickie designed to cash in on the success of 'American Idol.' The movie is an insult even to fans of the TV show.

Because I generally only give 'zero stars' to movies I find offensive, I will award "From Justin to Kelly" 1/2 star (out of four).
