    Relentlessly inoffensive, innocuous and vacuous, From Justin to Kelly is nowhere near as bad as its pre-release publicity would suggest.

    Full of gumption, Clarkson and Guarini soldier on, seemingy unaware that the perfectly adequate singing voices that brought them to the big screen are being drowned out, on a half-dozen same-sounding songs, by an overlayered backup group.
  3. They play cotton candy effigies of themselves named Kelly and Justin, and the best that can be said is that they don't embarrass themselves.

    In this frothy beach movie, they make pop-music lite together but create an utterly unconvincing romantic couple, seeming more like siblings or best friends. From Ruben to Clay might work better.
  5. 10
    Just one of those films, a bottomless well of snark fodder that may come and go in theatres but will surely be spun innumerable times on DVD at parties in the years to come.
  6. 0
    More than anything, From Justin To Kelly needs Simon Cowell, the fork-tongued Idol judge who gives the show its only sliver of tension.
  7. 0
    They have the chemistry of step-siblings, so a movie that has them make out is, as the one of the few girls in the theater exclaimed, "so gross."

The plot is terrible, and with the exception of Kelly Clarkson, so is the acting. I think the reason this was nominated for 4 Teen Choice Awards is because that is the audience it is directed to. This movie is not meant to be taken seriously, it's just a fun musical, with some corny teen humor. It's not exactly the next Citizen Cane, but it's not as bad as people are making it out to be. i think those people are taking this movie as a serious attempt at a good movie, which is not what it is.

    CARS, one of the single most underrated films of all time, is my choice to represent my will to overcome my obsessive-compulsive disorder. CARS, one of the single most underrated films of all time, is my choice to represent my will to overcome my obsessive-compulsive disorder. Just as it surprises me that it hasn't gotten better reviews than it has, so does this movie surprise me that it hasn't gotten worse reviews. Because it represents the complete opposite. I hate this movie. Hate it, hate it, hate it. Only a person like Derek Malcolm could not think watching Lightning and Sally looking off into a beautiful canyon is at least slightly better than this piece of shit. Collapse

    Disgusting filth when compared with any other film ever made. Hilariously embarrassing when watched. It provided laughs...for all the wrong reasons.
