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.

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.

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.
