Bede’s Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon #45: From Justin To Kelly

Hey everyone! Welcome to the 45th edition of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon series. I’m sorry that this edition of the series didn’t quite get posted at the end of February as it was originally intended. So I apologize for the slight delay. As you already know from last month here on I posted up poll with three bad movies and I said that whichever one out of those three films had the highest votes, I would watch and live-tweet for this column. Well, the votes are in and you all have spoken. For this instalment of Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon, you guys wanted me to watch and live-tweet… FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY! Is this one of the worst musicals of all time? Whose idea was it to make a film starring a couple of AMERICAN IDOL contestants? Read on and find out!


Bede @BedeJermyn

I know I’ve said this many times before but I’m going to say it again. Is it too late for me to *not* watch this film? 


However that being said, I do really like Kelly Clarkson. She is pretty awaesome but yeah, this was not a good career start for her 

Yeah, I’m pretty sure that bar would not be that empty at that time of day.

Whoa! Anika Noni Rose is in this film?! So DREAMGIRLS wasn’t the first film she starred with someone from AMERICAN IDOL!


You know for people who are suppose to be collage, Kelly’s friends look as though they are at least in their 30s.

Wow. This is the most monotone cover of the The Go-Go’s “Vacation” I have ever heard.

Why do I get the feeling that we’re not going to be seeing any beach locations again through the rest of the film?

Poor Justin Guarini. All he ever wanted was the be famous singer but nope. This film pretty much destroyed his career


Also sorry Justin. There was only one singer with a fro to come out of IDOL and that was Australia’s own Guy Sebastian.

Wait, this film was written by the screenwriter of SPICE WORLD: THE MOVIE?! That explains EVERYTHING.

Although I have a feeling that this film isn’t going to be as bat shit insane as SPICE WORLD was.

Wait, this is a musical number? I thought it was just a song on the soundtrack before I noticed everyone started singing.


Wow. Just wow. This musical number is so flat and boring. There’s no energy whatsoever.

You know this film would be what LA LA LAND would be like if both the cast and filmmakers made no effort whatsoever.

I don’t know about anyone else but I want Justin’s nerdy friend’s weird looking hat.

You know that this film was made in the ’00s ’cause some of the male character have frost tips in their hair


‘Flaunting’? Geez, I haven’t that word in like over 10 years. This film is like a time capsule of early ’00s

You know for a film that’s meant to be about spring break, it’s treated pretty tamely.

Wait, is this just song or a musical number? ‘Cause Kelly & Justin don’t mouth the words but now they do. I’m confused.

Geez, Kelly & Justin. It can’t be that hard to find each in this crowd. You’re basically next to each other!!!


Justin and his friends are organising whipped cream bikini contest but since this is a family film, I don’t think will be seeing it

Poor Kelly & Justin. They’re good singers but somebody should have taught them how to act.

“My hair won’t fit in there” “I’m from Texas. I’ve seen bigger” OOOOooooooo!!!

Oh please, Justin. That bathroom window was clearly big enough for you to climb through.

Wait a minute. Did that bathroom shrink a few sizes smaller after Justin climbed through it? It actually looks smaller now. 

Geez. Even though that Kelly’s friend knows that Justin likes her, she still wants to try to hook up with him anyway.

Wow! Kelly’s friend is truly evil! She doesn’t want Justin & Kelly to get together at all!


This film would be a lot better if James Franco’s character from SPRING BREAKERS was in it.

I know that this subplot with Anika Noni Rose is a bit pointless but she’s the best actor in the cast, so I’ll let it slide.

Yeah, these musical numbers still continue to suck.


“Jay, I know what it’s like to be blown off” … Yeah, I have no comment for that. This is a family film, right?

Wait, they’re having a whipped cream bikini party and they didn’t invite Ali Larter? What a rip off.

You know it has to say something that I’m more interested in how that giant sandcastle was made than this film.

I wish Steve Carell was in this film. Mainly that he can shout this out a million times during the film…


Yeah, it’s pretty clear in their scenes to thee that Kelly & Justin have no romantic chemistry whatsoever.

This film is basically a bunch of very made badly music videos that are strung together by a very thin plot thread.

Seriously, no joke. This film uses the same shot Kelly & Justin passing a house over and over again. It’s hilarious!


You know what? I wouldn’t be surprised if Carlos’s use to work as pornstar in the ’80s. He seriously looks like one.

This is without a doubt the most boring spring break I have ever seen in a film.

Why does Justin’s nerdy friend look like he’s dressed up for a safari trip?

Yeah, Kelly’s blonde friend Alexa is a straight up evil person. She has no reason to do what she is doing.


Why do all these musical numbers always start with characters singing BEFORE they even have opened their mouths?

Also the songs themselves don’t anything to do with the scenes that they are featured in. This is just simply lazy.

Wait, stop, hold the phone! This monstrosity was directed by the guy who made the ’90s teen classic SHE’S ALL THAT?!


For someone whose date didn’t show up to their meeting place, Kelly is taking it rather well.

OMG I don’t how it’s even possible but Alexa just keeps getting more and more evil as the film goes along.

Justin’s nerdy friend Eddie is starting to look more like Gilligan from GILLIGAN’S ISLAND as the film goes on.


Ahhh… What the heck is Kelly wearing? That dress she’s got on looks like it’s made out of ties.

Oh, man. These musical numbers are really atrocious.

Okay, so Justin and the guy from the beginning who has a crush on Kelly are… I don’t know what they are doing honestly


Okay, we’re back to the subplot with Anika Noni Rose’s character. Which is probably the only watchable part of the film.

“We need to talk about Kelly” Well, first I think that we need to talk about Kevin.

“I’m starving” “Yeah, I imagine stabbing your friends in the back would take a lot out if you” OHHHHHHH SNAP!!!


OMG! Just when you think Alexa can’t sink any lower as person, she absolutely does.

I like how the people in this club haven’t put any enthusiasm into their dancing at all.

Kelly just found out that Alexa has been lying about Justin. Oooo this going to be good! Shit’s about to go down guys!


Yeah, I’m sorry but that excuse isn’t going to work, Alexa. You got owned big time!

Sad theme song from FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY

Why is that all the songs in the film sound like other and better songs that were released around that period?

I know I should be happy that Kelly & Justin are finally getting together but I honestly just don’t care anymore.


Are Kelly & Justin wearing the same clothes that they wore earlier in the film? ‘Cause it looks like they are.

I honestly wouldn’t be that surprised if both the beginning and ending were shot on the same day.

Well, it’s a good thing that film wrapped up the romantic subplots of Justin’s friends. I was worried for second.


Thanks film. Not only did you give us a bad cover of “Vacation”, you’ve done the same for “That’s The Way I Like it” too

I wonder if a musical should even count as a musical if all the songs that are sung in it are all terrible?

Well, that’s the end of the film. There’s no question that one of the worst musical of all time. It’s just terrible!

I hope everyone enjoyed reading this 45th edition of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon! Keep a look out later in February for my 46th edition, which I could be doing on one of the following three bad film: FREDDY GOT FINGERED, HERCULES IN NEW YORK or HIGHLANDER II: THE QUICKENING. Which one will it be? Vote on the poll which will be posted on soon!
