21 years ago, 'Crossroads' movie had its theatrical release

Recommended Posts


On February 15, 2002, Crossroads was released in the United States by Paramount Pictures. The teen drama film was written by Shonda Rhimes and directed by Tamra Davis; MTV Films was in charge of the production. The film stars Britney Spears as Lucy Wagner, along with Anson Mount, Zoe Saldana, Taryn Manning, Kim Cattrall and Dan Aykroyd. Jamie Lynn Spears also made a special cameo as a young version of Lucy, Britney's character.


Despite receiving mostly negative reviews by the critics, the movie was a box office success, grossing over $61M worldwide in three months.


Britney Spears created the concept of the movie, which was originally titled "What Friends are For", along with her team, and this was later expanded by Shonda Rhimes. With a budget of $10M, the production of the film started in March 2001, but it only wrapped up until six months later, due to the fact that Britney was recording her third studio album.


The movie was first premiered in Cannes on January 19. Britney held a press conference to talk about it.


The US premiere took place in Los Angeles on February 11.





The performance on the movie got Britney some nominations at the MTV Movie Awards and Teen Choice Awards, but didn't win any. She won Worst Actress and Worst Original Song at the Golden Raspberry Awards though :britdrown_britney_tears_crying_drown_ink_black:

I wish they’de acknowledge its existence more I feel like this movie could really blow up if put on a streaming service that’s popular and gets a blu ray release. Like it’s bad but a good bad movie. I can totally see a cult following growing for it 

I wonder if there are issues with the rights to the music.


I remember seeing this in the theater with a bunch of girls from my 11th grade class and being like "So this is a chick flick".
