Britney bomb isn't appropriate for her young fans.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

| Original Score: 2/4

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

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'.
