From Justin to Kelly | 2003 | PG | - 3.2.2

Essentially a spring break music video with a touch of romantic drama about three young women and three young men searching for the right person on the beaches of Miami. It features the original "American Idol" stars Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini. Also with Brian Dietzen, Katherine Bailess and Anika Noni Rose. Directed by Robert Iscove. [1:21]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A young man and young woman kiss in several scenes, a young woman kisses a young man on the cheek in a few scenes, and two young men hug (doesn't appear sexual). A young woman flirts with and tries to seduce a young man in a few scenes. A whipped-cream bikini contest shows young women with whipped-cream bikinis in place of real bikinis. A young woman fantasizes about dancing with many young men and sings a suggestive song. Young men and young women talk about meeting members of the opposite sex throughout the movie; most talk about simply physical relationships and others talk about a more emotional connection. Two young men talk about a young woman being unfaithful. There are many song and dance scenes where young men and young women dance: one salsa dancing scene shows dancers dancing seductively, in other scenes dancers hold each other close, some scenes have the young men holding the young women in the air and others have them thrusting and wiggling their hips. A young man flashes his bare buttocks at three young women (we see nothing other than the young women's reaction). Young men and young women wear swim attire on the beach through most of the movie, revealing cleavage, bare abdomens and legs.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Two young men compete with hovercrafts and they crash, one ends up underneath his craft and is pulled out of the water with a bloody head (we hear he got 5 stitches). A young man is punched in the nose, falls back over a bed, and scrambles toward an open window while the aggressor chases after him. Two young men shove each other and speak harshly to each other. Young men skate on skateboards on ramps and do flips at the top. A young man has an extreme case of sunburn. A young man is chased by an angry man and he crashes into a food vendor's cart. A young woman is shoved onto the ground by a group of other young women. A young man falls out of a bathroom window and into a bush. A young man is hit in the head with a volleyball, a young man spills hot sauce on a young woman's lap, a young woman sprays whipped cream in a young man's face, and a young woman has a tray full of drinks spilled on her head.

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.
