Movie Reviews

As someone who has actually SEEN this movie...

"...I must say I was impressed. Let me back up -- On the Line opened this weekend (9/21/01) in Indianapolis; Miremax chose the city as a test audience. A friend and I (20-something college graduates -- NOT pre-teen *NSYNC fanatics) had seen previews for the movie over the summer, and we both thought it looked like a cute romantic comedy. When we found out it opened in Indianapolis (we live nearby), we decided to check it out, and we both loved it! Lance Bass held his own just fine in the leading role, and the humor kept the theatre audience laughing throughout the movie. That is not to say the movie didn't have a few weaknesses. Two stand out in my mind -- in what I can only assume is Miremax's attempt to keep the rating at PG, curse words have been dubbed, and rather poorly, in my opinion...perhaps this was only done for the test audience? Also, several supporting storylines with various characters get lost in the shuffle somewhat and do not develop enough to make the audience care too much about how they are resolved. Also, as with any romantic comedy, the ending is predictable, but who doesn't want to see the "good guy" win? That being said, however, I feel as though I must emphasize that the positives of On the Line FAR outweigh the few, minor negatives. For those people who think this is a "chick flick", think again -- much of the humor has a distinct male point of view, and the romantic element is sweet without being too sappy. For those people who think this is a movie that only *NSYNC fans would like, think again -- Bass and Joey Fatone own their roles as true actors do; they are not simply members of *NSYNC trying to appeal to the pre-teen masses. From what I understand, this is Mr. Bass's first attempt at movies, and he has done a commendable job. I highly recommend this movie to anyone (and I mean ANYONE -- regardless of age)who enjoys fun little romantic comedies along the lines of My Best Friend's Wedding and While You Were Sleeping."
A Feel-Good Movie

"On the Line is an absolutely wonderful movie. Kevin (Lance Bass) is a young guy who never seems to know what to say to any female around. He meets a girl on the L train and is so enchanted by her that he forgets to get her name and number. The rest of the movie is his attempt, along with his friends, to find her.This movie is great. Lance is a good actor and Joey is nothing short of hilarious. They definitely prove they can do more than sing with *NSYNC. This is a sweet love story with comedy thrown in to make it very entertaining. The songs played in the movie added a nice touch. They were just as good as the movie. Joey shows real talent in singing front and center. As part of *NSYNC fans don't really get a chance to hear Joey sing solo, but he sings a nice ballad in the movie and it is wonderful. He has a great voice. So does Lance, who sings at the beginning. This isn't a musical but music does play a part in it. *NSYNC fan or not this is definitely a great movie and one you will enjoy. It is a feel-good movie. A movie to be watched again and again."
This is a really good movie!!!

"I don't care what any of the negative reviews say. I bought this movie and I absolutely love it!!!!! It is just a sweet, romantic comedy that the whole family can enjoy. Out of everyone I know that has seen this movie, none of them dislike it! And let me tell you something else... it is not just little 13 year old *NSYNC "teenyboppers" that love this movie. Pretty much everyone that I told you enjoyed this movie are not fans of them. Some of the negative reviews on here are pretty harsh and that leads me to believe that they were written by people who have some kind of strange hatred for the group.Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, and Emmanuelle Chiriqui are quite good in this movie. Lance is supposed to be the shy (but sweet) Kevin who never takes chances, Joey's character Rod is a fun-loving,crazy rocker, and Abbey played by Emanuelle is the nice,sweet girl that you are rooting for Kevin to find. Please, don't let reviews about the acting throw you off from seeing this movie! The acting is good! F.Y.I. Lance even received an award for best male discovery from a special group in Hollywood!
I had to write this review because I don't want anyone to miss out on this wonderful movie and the main point I want to express is see this movie for yourself. Maybe you won't love it like I do but you definitely owe it to yourself to find out. If you like romantic comedies that make you feel good and are appropriate for the whole family, try this movie. I don't think you will regret it one bit."
A Wonderful Surprise!

"When I first went to see On the Line in the theaters it was definitely because of my loyalty to Lance and Joey but what a wonderful surprise when I found out how great the movie was! A comedic love story, Lance plays Kevin Gibbons a man notorious for copping out when it comes to love. One day on the L he encounters the girl of his dreams and keeping in tradition, fails to get her name or number. Thus starts the story line as he searches all over Chicago for the mystery girl played by Emmanuelle Chriqui. During Kevin's quest he must contend with ad campaigns, "help" provided from his three friends Rod (played by Joey Fatone), Randy the cynic(James Bulliard) and Eric the well-meaning troublemaker (GQ) in the form of sorting by dating the possible girls. Rod is a wonderfully comedic addition to the cast with a tendency for amp kicking during his band performances (although the uncontrollable body functions aren't quite as wonderful). Added into the mix is an ex-high school classmate turned reporter determined to repay Kevin for a slight in high school, a health food obsessed (somewhat psycho) boss, his work "nemesis" Jackie who's determined Kevin won't keep her from her promotion, and Jerry Stiller as an eccentric co-worker who instills sometimes understandable words of wisdom. This movie is a great find for anyone who loves a romantic comedy and although it is also a love story it stays away from being too corny."
