  1. Not only makes excellent use of the singer's sweetly coltish acting abilities, but it also promotes a standardized set of sturdy values with none of Mariah Carey's desperate ''Glitter,'' or any of Mandy Moore's gummy pap in ''A Walk to Remember.''
  2. Marks the emergence of a talented young actress. Not Britney -- who has the amateur's tendency to stand looking awkward after delivering her lines -- but Manning (Crazy/Beautiful), who plays Mimi with the gusto of a young Holly Hunter. Though she has little competition here, when she's on the screen she pretty much owns it.
  3. This is a star vehicle that stalls.
  4. Reviewed by: Claudia Puig
    Less a movie than a mind-numbingly dull road trip.
  5. Reviewed by: Ann Hornaday
    Not a music video, not yet a movie, but more like an extended-play advertisement for the Product that is Britney.
  6. 25
    Young girls are the only ones likely to enjoy this vapid road-trip movie.
  7. It does wonders to a critic to know that [Britney] could be a continuing font of teen and post-teen kitsch for years to come.

    "Crossroads" it's not a bad movie. In fact, it is actually good for a debut by a pop star. Spears' first movie role was very good, the singer tried hard to act and she got it. Taryn Manning and Zoe Saldana are amazing also. Expand

    Crossroads is a cinematic masterpeice. It's conveys the reality of growing up and the stress found between a broken family. Too long have people waited for such a daring feat of cinematography. Britney Spears brings life and exuberance into the role of Lucy. The other characters are mere fill-in's to Britney who takes over the show.- Expand

    The best part of the movie was seeing britney wearing close to nothing in a couple of scenes.There is a great concept and moral in this movie but its just hard to sit threw the movie Britney is just not good at acting and neither was anybody else in the movie. Expand

    The only reason this movie deserves a positive review at all is that Britney danced around in her underwear. GG bad acting and movies.

    It's classic summer counterprogramming: When a major action film comes out (like this week's "The Expendables"), counter it with something that appeals to women (like this week's "Eat Pray Love"). We look back at some of the worst examples of the "chick flick" genre since 1990.
