How bad is From Justin to Kelly? Set in Miami during spring break, it's like Grease: The Next Generation acted out by the food-court staff at SeaWorld.

You're better off just watch a music video of Kelly Clarkson or something.

Fun musical fluffiness, mostly for the girls. Yup, there's lots of singing and frivolity in this film, with a very light plot. No worse than most Elvis… More
