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 have to admit, I'm a massive Britney fan. Not because I think she is in any way talented, except possibly as a dancer, but because the girl can get a recording contract and sell millions of Cd's across the globe, despite the fact she can't sing.
I was looking forward to watching this movie, but it in no way even matched up to what I thought it could. I knew the plot would be predictable and lack credibility - i mean come on! It's a Britney movie! But some of my favourite films lack credibility and are still hugely enjoyable, just as a silly release from daily life.
Britney tries hard to reclaim her image as the innocent virgin, which has already been destroyed, and making herself out to be clever, or even a geek? Like anybody could fall for that? I'm glad they made an attempt to tackle controversial subjects, but angry that these were skimmed over as subplots, as if they were only there for the critics.
The acting wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible either. I have seen a lot worse. I'm sure this will just be another step in the path to fame, especially for the supporting cast. Hilary Swank was in the original Buffy movie, and look where she is now. However, that said, I don't think any of these actors will be winning an Oscar any time soon.
Don't waste your time on this movie. If you are bored and wanna laugh at Britney you'll find it mildly amusing, but otherwise, I wouldn't bother. Even as a fan, I couldn't praise this film.
