Quotes

[singing to the tune of Poison's "Every Rose Has It's Thorn"]
Rod: Kevin sits silently still in the dead of the day, wondering if he finds that girl that just walked away. Was it something he said, or something he did? Did the words not come out right? He didn't try to get the digits, he didn't try, but I guess that's they say why they say, Kevin crapped out on his own, but his friends would have helped him all along.
[speaking]
Rod: That poor bonehead.

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 See 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.
