CROSSROADS, a movie about three teenage girlfriends who have drifted apart quite a bit throughout the four years in high school. At the time of the movie the three girls, Lucy (Britney Spears), Mimi (Taryn Manning) and Kit (Zoe Saldana) meet back up at a special spot, and later begin a long journey across America. On this trip they discover something that they used to know, but had lost track of...their amazing friendship. This movie really is a good film about friendship and some of the most important things in life, that many take for granted. Britney Spears, along with her co-starring girls and Anson Mount (Ben) do an incredible job of portraying young girls (and guy) learing their way to adulthood. We all knew that Britney Spears could dance and sing extremely well, but did we know that she was such a great actress? Well, if there were any doubts about the extent of this girls talent, it seems that it's endless. Spears shows an extreme passion for acting and does it very well in the role of Lucy. It would be great to see Spears acting even more in the future. The movie also brings in some great appearances by Dan Aykroyd and Kim Cattrall, who play Lucy's parents, Pete and Caroline. If ever in the mood for a fun, campy movie that's a little bit comedy and a little bit drama, turn to CROSSROADS and your multi-talented girl, Britney Spears.

Since not very many people have been able to write a decent review of this movie, I felt compelled to do so. A movie as refreshing as this is worth it, in my humble opinion.
"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.

Wouldn't that have been a scary thought? I remember the hype machine going into full effect for the release of this film, and it seemed like it was going to achieve the instant, inexplicable success that Britney Spears's abysmal recording have received - and given her infamous ego, I'm sure she thought so, too. But this was not to be - the film was blasted by critics and more or less tanked at the box office. Nevertheless, I watched the movie with an open mind - either I was going to be pleasantly surprised or it would be 90 minutes of my life I'd never get back. Not surprisingly, it was the latter.
Think of the whole film as an opportunity for Spears to stroke her own ego: Take a tired road trip premise, throw in talented actors like Dan Aykroyd and Kim Cattrall to make the film look somewhat credible (both must have been hard out for a paycheck) along with some irrelevant teen actors and what you get is uninspired, formulaic drivel with no discernible purpose. Spears is unconvincing as an intelligent high school graduate who decides to bypass college for a potential career in music: in one ridiculous scene, she reads an atrocious poem to one of her friends (the one where she says she's not a girl, and not a woman either) who actually thinks it's brilliant (yeah - if it's the first poem you've ever heard) and turns it into a song. There's an unintentionally hilarious scene that features an awkward moment between Spears and a kid that looks exactly like Paul from "The Wonder Years": they are on the verge of a promiscuous act before Spears concludes that she's "not ready" - the exchange in the aftermath of this is downright embarrassing.

Sadly, I am a sucker for films that nearly everyone has knocked over backwards. I want to discover, myself, if these occasionally hidden cinematic gems are still hiding or if big corporate Hollywood has just smeared them enough to nearly wipe them out of film existence. With "Crossroads", there was enough plague surrounding it that friends nearly shunned me for weeks knowing that this film was in my house, more-so in my DVD player. Yet, I found persistence, and I watched with open eyes - twice actually, so that I can fully develop the sheer strength that "Crossroads" had to offer. Well, friends, Romans, and fellow cinephiles out there, I can now officially add "Crossroads" to the list of horrid films that everyone quivers over yet has actually never seen. I have seen "Crossroads", and I can stand up on a soapbox and announce that it is not the horrid trash everyone speaks about, but it also isn't worth the film it is printed on. This was a cookie-cutter film, produced by Hollywood to benefit the distribution of CD sales and promote the already growing popularity of one Britney Spears. This was not a film, but a platform from Ms. Spears, and by listening to the commentary, you begin to realize the power that this young girl once had - I stress the word "once". Now, two kids and several tabloids later, I am not sure that this film could even see the light of day.

To begin, because that is always a good starting point with films of this nature, I must take a step forward and say that the acting wasn't excruciating, but it was painful. It was obvious that our three leads, Spears, Saldana, and Manning, were quickly becoming strong friends - and that friendship translated well onto the screen, but it was their individual stories and accomplishments that created the pain.
