    Harmless romantic and musical high jinks abound, and sentimentality prevails.

    Perfectly harmless, often humorous, featherweight confection -- think "Serendipity" re-imagined as a teen-skewing Saturday morning sitcom.

    On the Line's cutesy premise is no more ridiculous than that of most romantic comedies.

    Less a romance than a feature-length plug for 'N Sync and its personalities -- and so, like all ads, not meant for "conscious consumption." Which opens the blissful avenue of sleep.

    The only reason to sit through On the Line is for some entertaining, if fleeting, musical moments.
