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 »

What the hell?
18 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

What the hell? What were they thinking when they wrote this? It's just a pathetic excuse to have a movie with the guys from *N Sync in. It's not funny and incredibly boring, which just seems to drag on and on until it gets to it's incoherent and sappy ending. Some of the characters had no signifigant value to the plot of this movie. The only reason why I got it was because I wanted to see how much Lance Bass and Joey Fatone suck at acting. Well, they suck a lot. Please do yourself a favor and do not rent this!
