The millions of preteens and their parents who love Britney Spears for her Scotchgarded girl-woman perfection aren’t going to be disappointed by Crossroads, an amiable, sporty girl-dream road trip. The pop star and spokesgirl of confident virginal virtue plays a docile Georgia high school valedictorian who takes a ”wild” road trip to L.A. with her two best childhood friends and a hunky guitar-playing young man (Anson Mount). Members of the Society for the Preservation of Virginal Role Models should note that he inspires her to relinquish her tiara as princess of purity. B+
