Crossroads | 2002 | PG-13 | - 4.3.4

Britney Spears stars in this coming-of-age flick: At age 10 Spears and her two best friends promise that they'll always be best friends. But their friendship does not last, and by the time they graduate from high school they don't even like each other. So, they decide to go on a cross-country road trip, hoping to rekindle old feelings. Also with Anson Mount, Zoe Saldana, Taryn Manning and Dan Aykroyd. [1:34]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A young woman talks about having gotten drunk once, and it is insinuated that a young man raped her. A young man starts dancing with a young woman and he begins groping her; she tries to get him to stop but he persists and another man hits him in the face with his elbow. It is suggested that a young woman and man have sex; the man takes off his shirt (we see his bare chest) and the young woman takes off an outer top, they kiss passionately and we see them sleeping in bed together. A young man wears his boxer shorts (we see his bare chest) and a young woman wears a bra and panties (we see her bare abdomen to the hips, thighs, and shoulders); they have planned to have sex and they begin to kiss but she stops. A beach scene shows three young women in swimsuits, a man takes off his shirt and we see his bare back, and a woman wears a short skirt and halter top that expose thighs, cleavage and her bare midriff. A young woman and man hug and kiss romantically a few times, a man kisses a young woman on the forehead, and a young woman and man nearly kiss. A young woman goes to the bathroom in a desert (behind some shrubs) and she comes out screaming that something bit her on the bottom (we see her bare hip). Three young women sing and dance suggestively in a nightclub (the camera focuses on their body movements and one young woman's bare midriff). We see a young woman in her underwear singing and dancing (her bare abdomen is exposed as well as her shoulders, legs and the bottom of her buttocks). Young people dance together at a prom. Young women wear tight-fitting evening gowns, at a dance, which expose bare shoulders, backs and cleavage.

Two young women fight with slaps, hair pulling, ear pulling and shoving. A pregnant young woman falls down a flight of stairs and we see her in the hospital after having lost her baby. A man talks about rescuing his stepsister from an abusive father. A young woman teaches another young woman how to punch. There is talk of a man having gone to prison for killing a man. A man yells, kicks some dirt and throws stones in frustration. A young woman uses the bathroom in a desert and she comes out screaming that something bit her on the bottom.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
