From Justin to Kelly: A Tale of Two American Idols

Justin to Kelly Television propelled teen idolatry – the kind that Moses would probably have disapproved – gets its ugly comeuppance in this musical about two college students, who meet and fall in love in Miami during spring break. Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini do their part to remind audiences that “Chicago” was an aberration to the fact that movie musicals suck in this transparent attempt to package silk from a sow’s ear. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even hurl. Isn’t that what entertainment is all about? Robert Iscove (“She’s All That”) directs.
Rated PG. 81 mins. (D-) (Zero Stars)
