From what I interpreted, Paul wasn't implying that it necessarily matters (because gay men portraying hetero characters happens all the time), but that this movie was a vehicle for Lance Bass to become a hearthrob for girls everywhere, and the irony is that he was still in the closet at the time, and likely hated the experience because of that.
Shannon, that video literally made vomit chunks rise in my throat. Also, Mandy Moore's facial expressions while singing are redonk.

The audio from the trailer ALONE is a masterpiece of unintentional comedy!
Does this mean we could be getting a "From Justin to Kelly" episode in the future?

..am I going to watch this one? I think I have to. I skipped out on Pluto Nash, and only watched half of Tiptoes.

- They advertised the shit out of this movie on the Family channel (abcfamily now I believe) as the first ever *NSYNC movie, with a million behind the scenes special. The soundtrack had never before heard b-sides that were supposed to get us all riled up. But Justin and Chris are only in the weird ass end credit scene (see exhibit A) and JC wasn't in the movie AT ALL. Which was a HUGE problem seeing as most *NSYNCers were split on a Justin/JC level, which I believe is a big reason it tanked so hard. The fact that the band was only a year away from breaking up is very obvious in retrospect.
- SOUND EFFECTS. So many sound effects.
- This movie clearly had a R-rated script that was severely dumbed down for tweens. There's a lot of weird non-swearing. Lot's of "what the heck?" and "stuff" where "shit"s should be. And Lance's character was obviously supposed to be a virgin, because nearly EVERY scene with the friends they use the phrase, "never sealed the deal" or "can't close the deal"
- Everything in this movie SCREAMS year 2000. Lance wears the most awful suits ever.
- Al Green is in this film and serves as a main plot point. (Richie Sambora is also in it, but not as himself)
- The movie has a very drawn out, missed connection, "Serendipity" type plot that I found frustrating. I feel like I only watched this movie 2 or 3 times before selling it at a garage sale. (I only got it for Joey anyway...he was so funny to me then)
Overall, it's an extremely cheesy movie but it moves quickly so it isn't boring, you just roll your eyes a lot. I think it's definitely a step above From Justin to Kelly, if that means anything. I also think it might be fun to watch if you imagine that Lance's character is also in the closet, and this is a movie about a sad gay kid whose friends won't butt out of his life and trying to get him laid. Deep shit yo.

35:13 minutes into the movie best line so far
At a cubs game scene, lance bass's friend announces to the crowd that he is the man from the news paper. A woman then leans over and replies to lance "Oh, that's so romantic. I have a daughter". Quickly Joey Fatone asks the woman "Oh, yeah? Does she eat meat? and immediately takes a huge munch out of a hotdog!

Does exhibit B feature the other guys as the construction worker, Indian, and...boat captain? Doorman? Plumber? Who WERE the other Village People?
Village People would have been better... instead we have a "behind the scenes" look at the film's unbearably over the top stylists
Enjoy... or something.

Jeez, it looks like a sketch that got cut from Mad TV because it just didn't quite meet their high standards. I'm probably telling the truth and I don't even realize it...
