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 am not going to state how bad this film is because I don't want to be redundant. I rented this flick strictly for laughs and it delivered. My personal favorites:
This is Britney's actual dialogue during the emotional scene where her friend Mimi is pouring her heart out and telling her that she lost her baby and wanted to be a mother. Britney's lines during that scene: "Hey" then "Yeah", followed by "Okay" and finally "Yeah". I had to rewind and watch it again because it was so funny! There is also a very inappropriate part during this scene where Britney tries to touch Mimi to comfort her and then Mimi snaps back, "Don't touch me!" Britney then deliveres that third line, "Okay".
So much for editing: When Mimi and Kit are walking up the stairs so Kit could see her college boyfriend, Mimi stumbles delivering her line. At this point the director already gave up and was thinking, "God, I hope I did not ruin my career by taking this project."
Even the lip synching in the end where Brit is auditioning is so bad. Jeez, I mean she could've at least sang LIVE! If she screwed up, then they could just reshoot the scene.
If you are studying film editing and screenwriting, definitely rent this! You will be laughing out loud!
I'm thinking minus all the scenes where they are singing along with the radio during the road trip, the story would take 30 minutes.
Overall, this is good to rent if you're a person like me who every now and then likes to rent films to enjoy bad dialogue, acting, editing and directing.
