Film Snobs

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

I went to Crossroads expecting a glitzy bimbofest and got the bimbos but not the fest.

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

Its biggest fault is not having a clear idea of its audience.

Britney bomb isn't appropriate for her young fans.

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

Because Crossroads is essentially a platform for Spears' fledgling acting efforts, the film struggles with her.

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

Too hokey, too stodgy and too aggressively pink.

A non-Britney person might survive a screening with little harm done, except maybe for the last 15 minutes, which are as maudlin as any after-school special you can imagine.

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

For anyone seeking a movie that captures the utter vapidity of the Britney Spears Experience, with all of her most annoying personal traits and uh-uh-uh vocal tics brought to the fore.

Oops, she's really done it this time. That chirpy songbird Britney Spears has popped up with more mindless drivel.

Movie Eye

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.

Like one long commercial for Britney Spears, her moves and her music.

It makes me feel weird / Thinking about all the bad things in the world / Like puppies with broken legs / And butterflies that die / And movies starring pop queens

Brittany's fans will probably love "Crossroads." Everyone else may be able to make a drinking game out of it.
