Trivia

Cast-members Joey Fatone and Lance Bass were band mates in the boy band "N'Sync" at the time of the movie's release. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the movie, all of the characters mouths do not match the audio. It's apparent that all of the cuss words were taken out during voice dubbing in final production. For example, when Brady Francis finds out that Kevin's friends are taking the girls out, his voice says "his butt is mine" but his mouth clearly says "his ass is mine." See more »

Crazy Credits

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 »

Better than I thought
2 March 2002 | by GaborWorldSee all my reviews

When I first heard of this movie being made, I thought, "O-kay, now *NSync is doing movies? It will probably suck! Why don't they just stick to singing?" We've all seen movies like this- singers trying to crossover into acting, and most of the time the movie flops. But this movie was different- it was actually good. The acting was great, the comedy was excellent, and I found myself shouting out, "Get the girl's number or something!" at the key moment in the beginning. I wish more people would give this movie a chance. People might think this movie is geared for preteen girls because it does star two members of *NSync-but I think more guys would relate to this movie- I know I sure did.
