In order to achieve their dream of opening a recording studio, two friends (Omarion, Houston) must first win their city's dance contest -- a fierce competition that pits them against a group of tough street dancers.
Spring break in Miami is the scene. It's where surf-drenched guys cruise girls in bikinis and raucous parties rule day and night. It's the perfect time and place for three young women from Texas and a trio of college guys from Pennsylvania to find adventure and maybe even fall in love. In a Texas dive bar, Kelly is singing her heart out to a few local yokels when her best friends Kaya and Alexa try and tempt her away for some fun in the Florida sun. It's an easy sell--even for the cautious Kelly - and the three head for Miami. Making their way to the same destination is the "Pennsylvania Posse": college students Justin, Brandon, and Eddie. Justin and Brandon are smooth-talking party promoters, while Eddie's primed to meet Lizzie, the cyber dream girl he's been e-mailing for months. Miami Beach, beating with a rhythm all its own, is teeming with beautiful people. Kelly's friends are drawn into the beachside fun, while Kelly tentatively navigates a sea of strangers.

A commercial soundtrack was never released because the producers didn't want it to compete with Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini's debut albums. "Timeless", sung by Clarkson and Guarini, was included on his debut album, "Justin Guarini." See more »
When the girls are leaving the beach, Alexa gets the first text message from Justin. They show her phone up close, and you can see her phone has no antenna. When she puts her phone back in her purse, the phone has an antenna. See more »
Let's head back to the hotel.
[Alexa dumps her purse, her phone falls out]
Oh Lex. Your phone.
[Kelly picks it up and begins to examine the text messages]
Come on, y'all. Let's go.
[she shakes her head after reading the messages sent to Justin]
What did you do?

An extended version, running about nine minutes longer than the theatrical version, is available on video and DVD which has a few extended scenes including a "Dare to Be Bare" contest, and two extra musical numbers called "Brighter Star" and "With Love From Me to You." Also the musical number, "Wish Upon a Star" is slightly extended with addtional lyrics and more sensual dancing. See more »
This movie is terrible because it was made 40 years too late. The American Idol hype fueled the studios ambition to crank out a quick blah blah story about Justin and Kelly. The end result, a soup sandwich with no audience. The fact that what works on television doesn't always work on the "big screen," is true in the case of From Justin to Kelly. The production value is professional and many of the dance numbers took long hours and hours to practice and to get right. Still, nobody cares. The movie itself (on paper) was a joke to begin with. There are only a handful of lines worth hearing through this 90 minute movie. The rest can be considered pop-culture junk or better yet, left overs that nobody wants to have for dinner.
