    Oh man, so this the infamous American Idol promoted movie I heard so much about.

    Todd, Nostaliga Chick......you did your country proud ripping this movie a new one.

    *salutes*

    Another winner! Nice review guys, more crossovers in the future please!
  • Ohsha
    Gotye's popular now? But I liked him before he was cool...Bands need to have the first print of their vinyls marked with special "before they were cool" packaging so all the posers know.

    You should review Gotye though. It can be as entertaining to hear someone laud a piece and why it's good as mock and complain.

    Lol I was surprised when I started hearing his stuff on the radio too, esp with that song. I mean, it's awesome for Gotye, but at the same time, kind of worrisome... hopefully he doesn't go full on pop or something. :(
  • littlelili
    yeah that was my reaction to Gotye, and well fun. too. Like I was sitting there listening to the radio then blinked a lot in confusion.

    Then again I'm so used to it at this point, it's been a process I've had to go through for years.

    Why do people act smug about liking bands first?
    Shouldn't they be happy their favorite musicians are making it big? Good music should be shared.

    Excuse me? Was that Linear B or Etruscan or Klingon or something? At first I thought that this was about Justin Bieber and Kelly Clarkson; at least I got the latter half right. Something is wrong with Kelly Clarkson's face in this movie but I cannot put my finger on it.
  • Goobian
    The first season of American Idol Kelly won. Justin was the runner up. A few months after they made this movie.

    I was thinking the same thing. Her face looks puffy which makes her eyes look nonexistent.
  • ladydiskette

    I am so glad Kelly Clarkson has gone beyond this movie. To the point that not even her fans want anything to do with it.


    It gives me more respect for her.
  • littlelili
    She's not wearing any make up? That's what I notice at least and it was really distracting. I'm not saying she's ugly or anything like that but simply when you're used to seeing someone that always has make up on without it they don't look like how they usually do. There is discoloration with her skin (that's normally not there) that foundation and concealer would have helped, and her eyebrows were not filled in.

    Yay, I love it when you guys do crossovers! That was highly entertaining, really enjoyed it. Ha, good luck with the next song review, Todd!
  • Bloodrealm  - Todd's Crossovers
    Yeah! I like when Todd does crossovers. He's actually really good at reviewing movies!
  • darthjoey
    That was good. I especially liked how he acknowledged that we actually have decent music hitting the top of the charts. I blame Adele for that. Glee actually might also get some credit as Somebody I Used to Know and We are Young were covered on Glee before they really got big. Still not enough to salvage that show, though.
  • Cinnamon Scudworth

    "We Are Young" was on Chuck before that. Clearly, THAT was the real driving force behind its charting.

    Dang it, that was going to be my comment. Anyway, good video, both of you.

    short for Cthulhu? you can get Kelly out that just try figuring it out for yourselves. Although this would explain the movie.

    Nostalgia Chick and Todd doing reviews about lame pop star movies might be a thing now. What could be next?

    Also I'd like to see what Todd would do if pitchfork took over the mainstream and he had to review indie hipster crap.

    I was wondering lately if you 2 were gonna do another crossover, especially one on "From Justin to Kelly."

    I've only seen a little bit of it, and it was during a musical number at the end, and it's also where I said to myself, "It's a f**kin' musical?"

    5:49- Sprink Break with rules? Hold on, I'm gonna get my phone and call Bulls**t.

    This film has no idea what a nerd is. Nowadays, we nerds are the new fiitbal jocks.

    It's films like this that show why I don't see modern days musical films.

    19:24- I'm sure people like Lupa and Phelous would be so happy to hear you say that.
  • ashenblood

    I noticed that too! Even shouted out, "It's Palmer!" Gotta love our nerds!
  • Bloodrealm
    I THOUGHT he looked like him! So it's the same actor? Wow!
  • HeartlessHunter13  - American Idol supported this?
    . . . I guess I should be glad that I never heard of it or knew of it till now.

    And Todd does that mean you won't ever review Glad You Came by The Wanted? B/c last time (I think like two weeks ago) their song became the number 1 song in the USA . . . Z100 said it, not me.
  • BlufftonSWK11
    Oh my God! That nerd character is Palmer from NCIS!
  • Hyperior
    LOL I hope Todd eventually does a crossover with Lupa XD
    I liked the conversations between Todd and NC and knew this would be a good crossover but I barely payed attention to the review of the movie because the movie is just confusing and lame.

    ::Looks at title card:: Isn't Lindsay's hair black?

    "You can either do a review with me, or it's back to dumpster diving at the local Arby's."

    I associate beach dancing with the 60s.

    But surely there's a Hindi dubb?

    Callisto, Calypso, Kalima? Oh, I'm, thinking of Cali, not Kelly.

    Something that has always bothered me:
    *Bikini top & bikini bottom/speedo or swim trunks in public = Perfectly legal.
    *Bra & panties/Manthong or boxers in public = Indecent exposure.
    & yes, I've seen people walk home from the swimming pool & water park in their swimwear.

    Since when was her black? It's always been brown. And I too have seen people walk in their swimwear. You bring up an interesting point...
  • ladydiskette
    avatar
    To be fair, I always thought her hair was black too, but then that may be because of lighting from the camera.


    I have had that happen in Senior photos and class pictures where because of the lighting people assume I am a auburn.

    That was an awesome crossover Todd but if you had gone one more spot down the billboard you would have found a good song to review "Payphone" By Maroon 5 ft. Wiz Khalifa.

    Hopefully we do see more crossovers in the future i really do like them i was just hoping for a "Payphone" review!
  • fanime1
    avatar
    Maybe he didn't mention it because Rap Critic put it in his Top 5 Worst Lyrics of April. But who knows, maybe the ending is a sign he'll have to do another crossover...;)
  • wwitzke
    Thank you very much for reviewing this. For years, I thought "From Justin to Kelly" was about a guy named Justin that had a sex change operation and then changed his name to Kelly. Now I know that, instead, it was just a horrible American Idol movie, and I didn't have to watch it myself to find out.

    In retrospect, I suppose if I really wanted to know I could have looked it up, but I didn't.
  • Hakajin

    I think your version would've been better.
  • Moon Spirit

    I'm pretty sure what Kelly said was, "Name's Kelly, for sure," not "for short."

    Ah, but who cares, this movie shouldn't have existed. Just can't cash in on these two kids. One who's clearly not an actress, and another that no one wouldn't even remember at all in the years that follow.

    I love the pointless shove at the end. Don't just disregard her advances and awesome lasagna. You have to add assault to the list.
  • elrick43
    am i the only one who wants to see a follow up to this movie focusing on the 'nerd' character going onto medical school and finally becoming the assistant medical examiner at the D.C. branch of N.C.I.S.?
  • Jeff Jacobson
    Nice video.

    I think what was intended was that "Kelly" was short for whatever it was that the guy said right before that line ("the girl from the beach" or whatever it was that he said.) The writers of the movie were attempting to tell a joke.

    wow, James has a lookalike xD

    I wasn't going to comment on this video since watching Justin to Kelly will trigger horrific memories tied to a certain slumber party from nearly a decade ago, but I had to post this video.

    Someone actually did a musical Hunger Games video. Literally. Ok, it was based off of one scene, but I wouldn't be surprised if the girls behind this video (or even the guys who did A Very Potter Musical) expanded on this idea:

    Soooo, who wants to go up to James Rolfe and ask him why he's in this movie?
  • YeaItsMe  - Gotye...
    Theres plenty of interesting material to cover when it comes to Gotye. Like, he's from Austrailia and.....umm.....he likes pizza (okay, don't know for sure about that one but hey who doesn't like pizza). Am I right?
  • vonPeterhof
    He was born in Belgium, but grew up in Australia.

    Woah, the nerd is Jimmy from NCIS
  • Colten97
    An innocuous and cheesy piece of fluff filled with musical numbers that are tied together by a thin plot.
  • TooMuchFreeTime
    Todd (what we can see of him anyway) looks a lot like a friend of mine from high school.
