    21 Things You Never Noticed In "Crossroads"

    Not a girl, not yet a woman.

    1. The box the girls bury when the girls are young is covered in a bunch of '70s-inspired stickers, which would have been typical of a cool, '90s girl.

    2. Oh, hey! Did you realize Crossroads was written by Shonda Rhimes, aka the creator of Scandal.

    3. You probably realized this, but just to remind you: Young Lucy is played by Britney's little sis, Jamie Lynn Spears.

    4. Lucy's room displays both her love of music and science, which a Madonna poster, an old science project, and a poster advocating protection of wildlife.

    HAHAHAHA ALSO I FORGOT DAN AYKROYD IS HER DAD.

    5. Two other interesting things in this shot: A pic of her dad in his younger years, and this yellow dress, which we see her wearing later on.

    (Lucy wears the dress in the scene where she meets her mother.)

    6. Here's a closeup of Lucy's achievements: A service award, English achievement certificate, science fair winner, soccer award, and a plaque for her service as Student Council President.

    10. The dashboard of Ben's car is constantly filled with crap — papers, soda cans, and this box of Altoid mints.

    11. This pajama top gets transformed into a costume for the karaoke night.

    12. Lucy appears to be an Herbal Essences type of girl.

    Ahem and so would Britney...considering she was a spokesperson for the brand.

    13. Kit tends to wear bright colors and lots of patterns.

    14. The gang crosses into Alabama while it's still light out the first day of the trip. They stay overnight in a hotel, then hit the road again. By evening, they appear to STILL be in Alabama.

    Whether you drive straight across or diagonally, it should not take you more than seven hours to cross the state.

    15. Despite having a relatively full bottle of Herbal Essences that morning, Lucy decides to buy another bottle that night.

    16. The club where the gang does their karaoke night appears to be connected to Slide Records, the record company they're planning on auditioning for in L.A.

    Interesting.

    17. This top has to be an homage to Britney's home state.

    FWIW, Lucy is from Georgia, where the movie begins.

    18. A few times, we see Kit wearing clothes with cat/lion prints. Perhaps a reference to her nickname, Kit Kat?

    19. Just want to point out that a beachfront hotel room in Santa Monica/Malibu would probably cost a pretty penny.

    There's no way the gang made enough money at karaoke (plus the money they brought) to sustain this trip.

    20. Dylan (Kit's jerk fiancé) appears to be wearing a wedding ring.

    Paramount / Netflix

    But who knows. Could be bad 2000s man-jewelry.

    21. And in the hospital, Mimi reads an issue of Teen featuring Blink-182 on the cover.
