At the time I bought this DVD, when it was a new release, I did quite like Britney and her first album was a guilty pleasure, but a rewatch 14 plus years later and I'm sure seeing its flaws!
Britney looks freaking old for the part (I'm sure a lot of it is the ghastly tan), and acting isn't her greatest skill. She's not terrible, particularly by the end as the movie gets a little more serious, she seems to have grown more into the part, but in the beginning she's not overly convincing. The shot of her dancing and singing in her undies - clearly to draw in the male viewers!
The plot is wafer thin, but there is some nice moments between the friends and those who enjoy her singing might enjoy those few scenes.
Do yourself a favor, and watch it already.
