    Let's be blunt: Bass can't really act.
  2. 30
    Bass isn't a gifted actor, but he retains his dignity, mostly by keeping his head down and avoiding the eyes of the idiots around him.
  3. 25
    An agonizingly creaky movie that laboriously plods through a plot so contrived that the only thing real about it is its length.
  4. Whether he's the victim of poor directing or misguided ambition, Bass is almost entirely charisma-free.
  5. 25
    More "it stinks" than *NSYNC.
  6. This pallid little ditty, like the rest of Lance Bass and pals' oeuvre, is soulless, banal and derivative.
  7. Though the pop idol recently said that movies are his ultimate goal, the best thing about On the Line is its music.

    Amazing! I was hard the whole time and couldn't conceal it!
