Three best friends get together and bury a box, making a pact to open it at midnight at their high school graduation. In the small town in Georgia that they live in, things soon change. One is little miss perfect, one is an engaged prom queen, and the other is a pregnant outcast. On the night of their graduation, they open the box and they strike up a conversation. Suddenly, one brings up the topic of her going to Los Angeles for a record contract audition. They all decide to go together and they leave. With a little money, they set out on the road with a guy named Ben. When one of them tells the other a rumor that he might be a homicidal maniac, they are all scared of him. When they reach Los Angeles, Lucy (Britney Spears) falls in love with Ben and against her father's wishes, she stays and she goes to the audition. Written by
Not a terrible movie, but definitely not a good one either
I was sitting home bored on Sunday morning, and my cable was acting up, so one of the few channels working was MTV and Crossroads was on. The movie isn't as god-awful as everyone says, but I wouldn't recommend it either. The story itself has been done before (see Boys on the Side), and you can predict the whole movie in the first 5-10 minutes. You also have to suspend some belief (they should still be broke). If you accept the movie for what it is, a coming of age story of 3 very different girls that would appeal to the tween and early teenagers, it's passable. If you're a guy, don't waste your time. The acting is amateurish, but not nearly as bad as in Glitter or From Justin to Kelly.
All in all, if you have nothing else to do and it's on, feel free to give it a try. Do not purposely rent or try to watch it. You'll be sorely disappointed.
