Three best friends get together and bury a box, making a pact to open it at midnight at their high school graduation. In the small town in Georgia that they live in, things soon change. One is little miss perfect, one is an engaged prom queen, and the other is a pregnant outcast. On the night of their graduation, they open the box and they strike up a conversation. Suddenly, one brings up the topic of her going to Los Angeles for a record contract audition. They all decide to go together and they leave. With a little money, they set out on the road with a guy named Ben. When one of them tells the other a rumor that he might be a homicidal maniac, they are all scared of him. When they reach Los Angeles, Lucy (Britney Spears) falls in love with Ben and against her father's wishes, she stays and she goes to the audition.Written by
I myself am not a fan of Britney Spears, but I wanted to watch this movie to see if it was good or not. I went in thinking 'Just because Britney Spears is in it doesn't mean it's going to be bad'...but at the end of it, I was ready to fall asleep.
First of all, Britney's character (Lucy) is all wrong for her. I mean, would you imagine Britney as an unpopular, geeky goody-good? Exactly. It's just too hard to imagine. Instead, we are stuck with Britney Spears' actual 'grown-up' image and it just doesn't work. It was just a bit too...unlikely.
Second, at times I felt almost embarrassed for Britney when she did all these things like dancing in her underwear. Some of the movie was truly cringey.
Overall, I felt this movie was not gripping enough. I couldn't truly focus on the movie because I thought it was a bit too weak.
