Nothing to Rave About, But Not Terrible.
12 November 2001 | by movies2uSee all my reviews

On the Line is an okay movie that is somewhat entertaining and enjoyable to watch. Lance Bass and Joey Fatone (two of the guys from N'Sync) did a fairly well job for one of their first theatrical films. Also Emmanuelle Chrique did good in her role as Abbey. The movie did get a little boring at times, but it also had some humor and laughs. On the Line is an okay movie that is an enjoyable movie to watch. I give it a 6 out of 10.
