Dull story, some vulgar humor in Lance Bass romance.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
June 20, 2002
Plays like a Freddie Prinze Jr. movie without Freddie Prinze Jr. And wouldn't you know, that turns out to be a good thing.

The film delivers on its admittedly modest mission -- to painlessly effect a pop star's transition to movie actor -- despite being not very subtle.

Certainly, you could find far more unpleasant ways to while away 85 minutes.

in case there is anyone out there who is considering going to this movie for any reason other than its N'Sync connection: don't bother.

October 26, 2001
A slight, cute charmer that, as far as pop-singers-turned-actors goes, is infinitely superior to the hideous Glitter and the even more wretched Spice World.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Harmless romantic and musical hijinks abound, and sentimentality prevails.

San Francisco Chronicle
October 26, 2001
The movie has some clumsy dialogue and awkward turns, but the picture is brisk and likable.

At least it isn't as condescending or transparently synthetic as most niche-marketed daydreams for the high-school and junior-high set.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

Both guys do what they can with paper-thin material. Unlike many seasoned actors, in fact, they don't totally embarrass themselves.

Bass has a charming, quiet anxiety that draws you toward him.

The duo come off with an easy, natural charm.
