"Crossroads" is the story of three girls (Britney Spears as Lucy; Taryn Manning as Mimi; and Zoe Saldana as Kit) who decide to take a road trip to pursue their individual dreams. Lucy wants to travel to Arizona to see the mother (acted by Kim Cattrall) that skipped out on her and her father (played admirably by Dan Akroyd) when she was three; Mimi has aspirations of a singing career and wants to head to California for an open audition; and Kit just wants to tag along to California to visit the man that never has any time for her, her husband-to-be. Close friends when they were tiny tots, they grew apart as they reached maturity, each taking the individual path that life has led them.
Lucy is the all-around brain and good girl who never disobeys her father. And - surprise, surprise - she can sing and dance, too! Mimi is five months pregnant, garnering a reputation that precedes her wherever she goes. And Kit is just a stuck-up, always-clamoring-for-a-mirror type of girl who takes wicked delight in her popularity and good looks. Little do these three girls know that life will bring their lives full circle. And that at the end of the road, they will be as close as they've ever been.
Now when I first heard that Britney Spears was going to be in a movie, I had my own conclusions. I had seen her act on an episode of "Sabrina: The Teenage Witch" a few years back; you could definitely tell that she was new to the acting thing. But then she went and did "Saturday Night Live" the next year and really showed the world that she was capable of something more.Read more ›
This is her debut movie, and she appeared very natural and convincing in her role. She tested out her dramatic skills with good results.
I was surprised also 'cause the movie touched certain topics like teen pregnancy, rape, fidelity, and at first I thought the movies was going to be all about the music.
There were parts that were just simply for fun, but were handled really good, like the car-ride sing-along.
On the other hand, the only part that wasn't convincing was her confrontation with her mother, 'cause we didn't got to see it, and I think that scene could have shown Britney's potential as a dramatic actress.
Overall, to my surprise, a good movie
The movie was about three friends Lucy (Britney), Kit and Mimi who are very good friends in the beginning as little kids but over time stop being friends until they don't really like each other. Then, after their Graduation ball, they go to a place where they digged in a box with all their "dreams". Mimi decides to go to Los Angeles to go to an audition for singing, Kit goes with her to visit her fiance and Lucy then too in search of her mother. Mimi's friend, Ben, takes them there in his car. Then it's a road trip in which the three friends find out their true selves and get together as friends again, never to separate. Lucy and Ben have feelings for each other. No dream actually becomes true - Lucy's mom doesn't want her, saying she was a mistake, in the end, Kit's fiance is actually a bad guy who is cheating on her plus he made Mimi pregnant. Mimi's dream was also to put her feet into the Pacific Ocean which she does and in fact, instead of Mimi, Lucy goes to the audition as the singer (she wrote the lyrics and Ben the music), but Mimi and Kit are her vocalists. It ends in a happy end but through some tough times.
I think the movie was really interesting and you won't be disappointed if you go see it. So check it out, cuz it's gonna be worth it.
