Storyline

Holly has everything it takes to be a star; the voice, the dream and the dedication, but she lacks the means to break away from her humble Texas upbringing. Then she gets the chance to attend an art and music school on the East coast and her future suddenly looks bright. But the road to stardom is a bumpy one. She must compete with the snobby Angela for the star spot and that's the least of her troubles. Luckily, Holly has the support from her mother and her roommate Ditz who prove that being a star has nothing to do with fame and everything to do with faith, family, and friends. Before all the number one hits and the adoring fans, all she had was the dream. Inspired by the book A Mother's Gift by Britney & Lynne Spears...the story of the true meaning of being a star.

I LOVED this film!
13 May 2004 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

ok, I thought "not ANOTHER britney spears film" when I saw the preveiws. But, as a matter of fact, I really enjoyed it! The actress who plays the main character (Holly Luvel) was Lindsey Haun, who I happen to be a big fan of. She has a better voice than Britney, and does a really good job with the texan accent and 'twang' even though she comes from L.A. The songs are all so good! The last and final number goes from a song in Carmen, to a dance and hip-hop sort of song. The film really prooves that anything is possible even if everything goes wrong, and that even if your at an all time low, you can turn things around. I recommend this to everyone, and if you don't watch it just because it was from britney. Afterall, I happen to think that is why america is soo messed up, but the film is still really good!
