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

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'.

Highbrow self-appointed guardians of culture need not apply, but those who loved Cool as Ice have at last found a worthy follow-up.

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

Tends to pile too many "serious issues" on its plate at times, yet remains fairly light, always entertaining, and smartly written.

It manages to charm by evoking that special summer-road-trip vibe, despite the movie's many potholes and pit stops.

Sure, Crossroads and Brit herself may be silly, superficial, and bubbly, but so what? She and the film are also fun, sexy, and playful.

Britney has been delivered to the big screen safe and sound, the way we like our 20-year-old superstar girls to travel on the fame freeway.

An appealing chick flick about three friends who explore together the scary and exhilarating transition from adolescence to adulthood.

Clichés pile up in Crossroads, but it's harmless, powder-puff fun.

Admittedly, I'm rather indifferent to Britney and her music, but still I didn't mind this film.

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.
