After years and years of being nearly impossible to track down, Britney Spears' movie Crossroads will at long last be available to watch on Netflix beginning on Thursday, Feb. 15. The movie first released on that same date in 2002, marking its Netflix homecoming 22 years later. There's no better way to celebrate its anniversary than with a rewatch!

In October 2023, Crossroads returned to theaters for a special engagement in conjunction of the release of Spears' blockbuster memoir The Woman in Me. The movie's re-release in tandem with the book was especially fitting given Spears' song "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman," which is referenced in the book's title, was also featured in the movie.

For those who didn't get a chance to catch the movie's limited re-release in theaters and doesn't happen to still have their DVD copy lying around, it's time to start planning a movie night on Netflix. Again, Crossroads begins streaming on Netflix on Thursday, Feb. 15 at 12 a.m. PT and 3 a.m. ET. The movie's release time will depend on your time zone, so make sure to check out our guide to Netflix release times around the world.

While Britney Spears fans around the world have definitely watched the movie many times in its 22 years since release, some will likely be watching for the first time. In the movie, Spears plays Lucy, a recent high school grad, the valedictorian "good girl" looking for adventure. She hits the road for Los Angeles with two of her estranged childhood friends and a handsome stranger for the trip of a lifetime.

Lucy, Kit (Zoe Saldaña), and Mimi (Taryn Manning) each have their own reasons for traveling across the country, but Lucy's in search of the mother who abandoned her as a child. Sex and the City favorite Kim Cattrall appears in the movie, which was written by Grey's Anatomy creator and Bridgerton executive producer Shonda Rhimes, as Lucy's mother. It's a memorable moment!

Crossroads proved a modest box office hit thanks to Spears' star power, bringing in over $60 million worldwide against an estimate budget of about $10 -12 million. If you ask me, the movie was far too underrated and deserved to be a bigger hit. The movie was also trashed by critics, but they were so wrong and perhaps blinded by the mounting media hate train unfairly surrounding Britney. She's incredible in the movie, and I'm so excited for it to have a second chance to thrive.

Don't miss Crossroads on Netflix when it begins streaming on Feb. 15!
