Critic Reviews for Crossroads

All Critics (115) | Top Critics (31) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (89) | DVD (26)

Dull, a road-trip movie that's surprisingly short of both adventure and song.

L.A. Weekly
Top Critic

Davis directs the low-budget production with economy and a lack of surface flashiness that is pleasingly unpretentious.

February 20, 2002
Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

Crossroads adopts such a self-important tone that it's embarrassing.

She's not yet an actress, not quite a singer...

The kind of movie that seems like a very extensive trailer for a music video coming soon to Total Request Live.

A stinker from top to bottom...

Cinema Crazed

Britney bomb isn't appropriate for her young fans.

Full Review… | December 22, 2010
Common Sense Media

Naive and amateurish in both the negative and positive sense of these terms, Crossroads provides a disappointing showcase for pop icon and youth symbol Britney Spears, who pretends to be the new-retro Sandra Dee.

Full Review… | June 4, 2006

Spears's technique indicates she's a graduate of the Brady Bunch Acting Academy...

Film Quips Online

Within 20 minutes of this incongruous baloney, I knew I'd stumbled upon a potential Razzie.

October 2, 2002

I never looked at my watch so often during a movie.

Montreal Film Journal

A cellophane-pop remake of the punk classic Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains...Crossroads is never much worse than bland or better than inconsequential.

Full Review… | August 26, 2002

Musically, Britney is as talented as Samantha Foxx, and her acting is less textured than Lance Bass'.

Full Review… | June 10, 2002
Film Snobs

What puzzles me is the lack of emphasis on music in Britney Spears' first movie.

Full Review… | June 7, 2002
ReelTalk Movie Reviews

If even half the scenes with the girls singing along to pop songs in the car were cut, Crossroads would barely qualify as feature length.

June 5, 2002
Philadelphia Weekly

comes off like a rejected ABC Afterschool Special, freshened up by the dunce of a Screenwriting 101 class. ...provokes a handful of unintentional howlers and numerous yawns.

Kalamazoo Gazette

Although Britney and her friends drive some 2,000 miles, her movie never goes anywhere at all.

Full Review… | April 16, 2002

A bizarre piece of work, with premise and dialogue at the level of kids' television and plot threads as morose as teen pregnancy, rape and suspected murder

April 14, 2002

Spears manages to come across on film as natural, endearing, and extremely likable.

Full Review… | March 4, 2002

Unfortunately, this young female-awakening dilapidated drama demands everything of Britney Spears as she juggles the rigors of being a sugar-coated lamb one moment than a rampaging rogue in a slinky bra the next.

Full Review… | March 4, 2002
Movie Eye

Why Britney's management team would allow her to make such a depressing movie is beyond me. The story is about miserable people who lead miserable lives.

Full Review… | February 27, 2002
Aisle Seat

Britney Spears and company are well aware that they're making nothing more than the cinematic equivalent of Spears' glossy bubble gum pop--but that's exactly the problem.

Full Review… | February 25, 2002

constantly rupturing and collapsing because it simply cannot contain the pop phenomenon of Britney Spears and tell the story it wants to tell at the same time

February 24, 2002
Q Network Film Desk

Strangely, while watching this, one is reminded of another wartime pop goddess, Betty Grable, whose popularity and talents were about on a par with Spears'.

Audience Reviews for Crossroads

I really loved this film! One of my all time favourite films. A must see!

Bethany Murphy

Super Reviewer

Very surprisingly I quite enjoyed this?! Yes it's very cheesey, what did you expect? I'm sure most people have panned this just because Britney is in it? It has a TV film feel to it but it's actually a pretty decent road trip film as a group of once close young friends head to L.A. together for different reasons. I thought Britney acted a lot better than I expected and it isn't overloaded with her songs for those who aren't fans of hers. It will probably be better known for Britney dancing around in her underwear, but it's not a bad film by any means.

(last lines) This time, we didn't make any wishes for the future. We said goodbye to our past. Now, none of us have any idea where life's gonna take us, because what we have is now. And right now, we have each other.

(in the hotel bathroom) We are at a hotel with a murderer!
He's not a murderer okay? It's just a rumor! (they all peek out the door where Ben is playing his guitar on the bed)
