YMMV / Crossroads (2002)

  • Awesome Music: Most of the music is good...the fan-favourite part though is when Britney sings freestyle and soulfully to Ben while in the shack with the piano in Arizona.
  • Critic-Proof: Granted, mostly this was on account of it having such a low budget, but it made just short of $65m worldwide on a $12m budget, in addition to strong sales of the accompanying soundtrack, making it a very profitable venture despite the bad reviews.
  • Idiot Plot: Lampshaded that they got in a car with someone they thought killed a man.
  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: All three girls set out with a specific goal in mind; Lucy to reconnect with her mother who abandoned her, Kit to visit her fiance and Mimi to pursue a singing career. Lucy's mother tells her she was a mistake and never wanted her, Kit discovers her fiance cheating and not only is Mimi upstaged by Lucy's superior voice, but she also loses her baby.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The Power of Friendship and Be Yourself is played into this movie, extensively...
  • Strawman Has a Point: Kit. Did Mimi really think she would become famous in spite of being heavily pregnant simply because she had a good voice?
  • Tear Jerker: Whenever Lucy cries, Mimi and Kit also have moments.
