A young man meets a girl on a train, only to spend the rest of the movie trying to reunite with her (one of the love-at-first-sight things), aided by his best friend in a quest of posters and signs that soon gains public notice. Will he ever find his soul mate?Written by

Just as the credits begin, there is a sound effect for the reels stopping and then titles signifying a "Behind the Scenes" of On the Line appear. We see Lance Bass and Emmanuelle Chriqui in their respective make-up chairs along with a cameo of two make-up artists, played by Justin and Chris from NSync. They exchange "N'Sync is N-Stink" comments with praises for Kevin. See more »
The 2001's opus On The Line is clearly one of the gripping romantic comedies of our time. The cellioud itself is iconoclast, redefining itself and the genre as a whole. In film we have a man who is seperated from his would be lover via the manical train (representative of man's conflict with nature and his own increasing modernaization in the late capitalist model). In turn Fatone's character must search to reclaim his lost love, but just as they appear to be reunited larger symbollic structures will keep them apart. For instance a large glass pane, (a nod to Freuds Id, and dismantling of the mirror stage, for through this glass, Fatone sees not himself but his lover, an analysis of both the social construction of self, and the dialouge of co-dependency). Will they end up in passionate union? Rent it and get TURNED ON THE LINE A brilliant piece of Shaduenfrueden.
