    6 / 10
    This movie is just literally unbelievable. The acting is very poor and who would believe that a girl like Britney can be a social outcast and a nerd who is also a virgin. That is what we are first meant to believe and if we cannot believe that, then the rest of the movie is just meaningless. Poor acting all round. This movie is meant to deal with issues of friendship and love and coming of age but the movie only lightly touches upon these issues and there is no depth at all.
    Positives? We get to see Britney in her undies and many other hot clothes and thats about it. This movie is just a promo for Britney.
    The picture is of great quality. Its a vibrant, clean and crisp transfer with a good soundtrack to boot. There are quite a few extras of which I did enjoy watching the music videos. There are several other featurettes and promo material which didnt appeal to me, maybe due to the fact that it was a rubbish movie.
    Overall the movie was watchable but really just to pass the time. The movie has no real message and is just dumb. Maybe it was made for Barbie type people, I dunno.
    It is worth a rent but not highly recommended. There is much more better stuff out there. If you are a Britney fan then it might be worth getting it.
