    In this frothy beach movie, they make pop-music lite together but create an utterly unconvincing romantic couple, seeming more like siblings or best friends. From Ruben to Clay might work better. show more

    More than awful, more than dreadful, and easily the worst beach movie ever made. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    A feather-light musical rushed into production to capitalize on American Idol-frenzy, is nothing more than an excuse to give the two leads several musical numbers, a la those Frankie Avalon-Annette Funicello "Beach Blanket Bingo" movies, and with just about the same amount of substance, too. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Arguably the most insipid movie released so far this century. show more

    They have the chemistry of step-siblings, so a movie that has them make out is, as the one of the few girls in the theater exclaimed, "so gross." show more

    The music is lavishly overproduced pop pablum of the first order, and there's a deeply shallow irony in the fact the film's most memorable tune, KC and the Sunshine Band's 28-year-old "That's the Way I Like It," is easily twice the age of its target audience. show more

    Michael Dequina Film Threat

    Just one of those films, a bottomless well of snark fodder that may come and go in theatres but will surely be spun innumerable times on DVD at parties in the years to come. show more

    It's like ''Grease: The Next Generation'' acted out by the food-court staff at SeaWorld. show more

    Relentlessly inoffensive, innocuous and vacuous, From Justin to Kelly is nowhere near as bad as its pre-release publicity would suggest. show more

    Chuck Wilson L.A. Weekly

    Full of gumption, Clarkson and Guarini soldier on, seemingy unaware that the perfectly adequate singing voices that brought them to the big screen are being drowned out, on a half-dozen same-sounding songs, by an overlayered backup group. show more

    It was good, if you were living in the 1960's, 70's, or 80's because of the story line. Thought the rapper dude was hot!
