From Justin to Kelly (2003) Poster


Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini were contractually obliged to participate in this movie because of their commitment to American Idol (2002).
The production company would not allow screenings for critics.
This film originally held the record for fastest release from theaters to home video/DVD: 29 days.
Listed among the 100 Most Enjoyably Bad Movies Ever Made in "The Official Razzie® Movie Guide."
The last names for the characters Kelly Taylor and Justin Bell, played by Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini, come from (respectively) their stepfather and father.
A commercial soundtrack for the film was never released, because the producers did not want it to compete with the debut albums by Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini. However, the song "Timeless", sung by Clarkson and Guarini, was included on Justin's debut album, "Justin Guarini".
Some theater chains threatened not to screen the movie at all when distributor 20th Century Fox announced plans to rush it to VHS and DVD a mere six weeks after its opening weekend, but Fox ultimately relented and pushed the release date back a number of months. After the opening-weekend flop, Fox reinstated the original release schedule.
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.
The film was originally set to debut on video and DVD just three weeks after its theatrical premiere. Due to threats of a boycott by exhibitors, Fox moved the release date of the video and DVD to September.
