So awful it hits the bottom of the bad-o-meter and bounces back up to be sort of good. I haven't laughed this hard in a while. Of course it was in all the wrong spots and mixed with an underlying groan.

Fans may enjoy their Idol songs and parents may appreciate its wholesomeness, but there's little else to recommend in this throwback to the '60s Beach Blanket movies.

What's depressing about From Justin to Kelly, whose title seems to refer to the text messages he sends her, is that it's been made without a lick of love, skill, or, apparently, money.

From Justin to Kelly is a musical so pedestrian it trips over its feet every time someone breaks into song or dance.

Television propelled teen idolatry -- the kind that Moses would probably have disapproved -- gets its ugly comeuppance...

This is such a manipulative product placing piece of dribble that it reeks of failure.

More than anything, From Justin To Kelly needs Simon Cowell.

Is it too late to vote them off? For once, we don't have to tell you how bad a film is... you knew before they made it.

The movie is billed as a romantic musical comedy. You coulda fooled me.

Watching them lock lips feels like incest propaganda: Justin and Kelly are offspring of the same publicity machinery, after all

From Justin to Kelly is bad, but Glitter is still worse because Glitter thinks it's a great movie.

How bad is From Justin to Kelly? Set in Miami during spring break, it's like Grease: The Next Generation acted out by the food-court staff at SeaWorld.
