"Everyone knows the umbrella incident happened at a gas station."
The movie is told in a series of flashbacks that chronicle the events from the release of her first single in 1998, to the aftermath of her breakdown in 2007 touching on all those infamous bases in between. We have to say that the N*SYNC surprise birthday serenade was one of the few highlights, with JT casually slipping a “you’re one year older, girl” in between verses. Then of course, there was the iconic Britney vs. The Paparazzi umbrella fiasco which did pose a few historical inaccuracies. “Mostly I was shocked, confused, and insulted. They even got the littlest things wrong. Everyone knows the umbrella incident happened at a gas station.” says Kaitlin Mount of Los Angeles, who considers herself a long time Britney fan. “Lifetime should have just played the music video for 'Lucky' on repeat for 90 minutes. That would have had more depth than this shit.”
Although what the internet seems to have latched onto (rightfully so, we might add) was the absolutely absurd Justin Timberlake/Britney Spears post-break up dance off in which the two battle it out early 2000s style. “The actress did an okay job at attempting her signature moves,” says Maritza Aguirre of Boston, “but I also think that they did a terrible job at recreating her iconic performances.”
