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

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

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.

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.

August 26, 2002 Full Review

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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'.

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

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.
