While not exactly a Millennial Hallmarker rom-com in the same vein as the others on this blog, Clockstoppers will always have a special place in my heart. Therefore, I couldn’t let its 15th anniversary go by without a little celebration, a love letter. Well, think of this less as a love letter and more as a loving rewatch of the awesomely-soundtracked 2002 flick about a teenager, Zak (Jesse Bradford), coming into possession of a time-stopping-esque watch.
Say what you want about singers trying out acting (though if it’s negative, it’s wrong…), but Britney Spears’ 2002 flick Crossroads is a classic and something that should not be missed by any romcom lovers. Not only should it not be missed, but it should be greatly appreciated.
Today marks the 15th anniversary of the film’s release and I still have so much love for it every time I watch it. Which is a few times a year. What I love most about this movie is that it has a super sweet romance between Britney’s Lucy and Anson Mount’s Ben, but it also has such a great storyline about female friendship, which we don’t often see in teen romcoms.
If you haven’t seen the movie yet (shame on you, get to it!) or just need a refresher, here’s a quick breakdown.
