Critic Reviews for Crossroads

All Critics (115) | Top Critics (31)

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

Top Critic

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

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

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

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.

Audience Reviews for Crossroads

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.
