Is the musical movie From Justin to Kelly, starring American Idol singers Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini, in perfect pitch or slightly off-key? Read Kidzworld's movie review right here!

It's spring break and two groups of friends head for the beach. The girls are from Texas and looking for love. The boys are from Pennsylvania and looking for fun, and money, as they organize such tasteful events as whipped cream bikini contests. Yeah, classy. Anyway, these crazy kids are looking for love and singing about it at the same time. But does From Justin to Kelly hold its own in the musical movie world?

From Justin to Kelly - Perfect Pitch

It's always fun to watch spring break action and this isn't the scary, caught-on-tape stuff. Sure, there is a whipped cream bikini contest, but it ends with Kelly spraying whip cream in Justin's face out of protest. Go Kelly Clarkson! Some of the group songs are pretty good. I really like the fact that From Justin to Kelly concentrates on the plot and not just the music. It is a good storyline and it involved all the characters, not just the leads, Justin Guarini and Kelly Clarkson.

From Justin to Kelly - Off-Key Parts

I think some of the musical numbers start off a little goofy. Justin Guarini, standing inches from Kelly Clarkson, just bursts into song - full-force, right in her face! It made me giggle. Also, it's lame that the costume designer saw Kelly Clarkson's size as such a problem. Just because Kelly weighs a normal amount and Alexa and Kaya (Katherine Bailess and Anika Noni Rose) weigh very little, Kelly is alway wearing a lot of unnecessary clothes. Kelly Clarkson is on the beach in jeans and a full-coverage tank top while the other two girls are in string bikinis. I'd rather they cover up all those boney kneecaps and let Kelly show some skin.

From Justin to Kelly - Bottom Line

It's a cute, fun flick with some cool dancing and tunes. I think the plot and the kissing scene were worth the cash - but go check it out for yourself. You can catch the trailer at www.fromjustintokelly.com.
