The movie makes a strong argument for the tender paradox of pop-culture adoration. It's an affection that feels wholly personal, but is shared with millions.

The layers of artifice are many, but they always are; the original show has never aspired to be anything but a cheeky, tuneful and multicultural spin on hoary high school stereotypes.

An orgiastic celebration of Glee concocted by its own creators...sort of like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, but with more hot air. [Blu-ray]

The Glee gang puts on a respectable show . . . and an exciting, inspirational, and allusion-filled one, if you're a fan.

Time to get your Gleek on! If you understand that sentence, you'll probably want to see this show. If you're scratching your head, maybe it's time you became acquainted with a television series that's a bona fide phenomenon.

The kids from Glee take to the concert stage in Glee 3D Concert Movie, singing and dancing and smiling to beat the band.

Glee leaps past antiseptic politeness or political correctness-it's got its crosshairs on self-acceptance and personal pride, and the film proves the agenda is working.

There could be worse things than seeing this film again: experiencing extraordinary rendition in the company of Dick Cheney, for instance.

Hardcore Gleeks will probably thrill at this 3-D concert film, but the more casual viewer, drawn to the Fox TV show's snarky and sweet storylines and its campy aesthetic, won't find much to chew on here.

I'm afraid my heart wasn't warmed by their tales of personal growth, and I can't forgive the cast for what they did to that Journey song.

The set is big, cheap and nasty. The cast are as choreographed behind-the-scenes as on stage.

It may lack storytelling ambition, but as an exercise in toe-tapping entertainment it gets the job done.

Be still Glee-ful hearts, as this concert doc packs all the energy of the small screen show and makes it... bigger.

The Glee phenomenon hits the big screen with this oddly conceived movie, which documents the social phenomenon but reveals nothing about the series or actors beyond the songs they sing.

Cynical, prepackaged and naggingly problematic cash-in exercise that earns points for perkiness but won't win over non-fans and may leave some die hard Gleeks feeling short-changed.

If you're a lover of the series, this is your summer cherry. If you're a hater or apathetic (I'm apathetic plus), it's first-rate fluff.

From the matter-of-fact title to the slushie-drenched end credit crawl, it doesn't pretend to be for anyone but viewers of television series.

Audience Reviews for Glee: The 3D Concert Movie

Dull, boring, cheesy, Glee is overrated and doesn't possess any redeeming values. This is a poorly done musical that doesn't deliver anything worthwhile and to old school music lovers like me, it's not very pleasant to witness classic rock songs being butchered by teens that can't sing. This film suffers from a bad script, a very poor cast and I really don't see why this stuff is so popular. To me, Glee is just an overrated mess that doesn't stand out and it's just a pitiful musical that doesn't work. This is a misfire and doesn't hold a candle to old musicals such as Rocky Horror Picture Show. This is filmmaking at its lowest form, and there are no redeeming factors whatsoever to this train wreck. Films like this just shows that Hollywood are running out of ideas and makes you wonder what will be released next. Jersey Shore: The Movie? Who knows? This was a painful viewing experience and I really don't see the appeal to this trash. Glee is just an uninspired piece of current popular culture that will fade away in the next decade and be forgotten afterwards. Avoid this film if you love old school musicals and well constructed musicals. If you're looking for something fun here, you'll get something that's tedious and poorly directed instead. One of the worst musicals in recent memory. Avoid like the plague, you'll be glad you did. If you're wondering what this film is like, imagine people that sing like popstars sing songs or trying to attempt to sing sing pop or rock songs and you have this movie.

I can't lie to myself that I'm already a gleek since I watched the series from the first season, and the news about this 3D Concert Movie just make me wanted to see this movie so badly.. I know that nothing special will happen as this is a concert movie, which is definitely doesn't have any story so I'm just letting myself to be relaxed and enjoying the performance the cast shown.. The whole song choice was ok, although I did hope for some song to be featured in this movie, but that's fine with me.. Overall, a perfect movie to complete a Gleek collection..

Haven't watch the show? Well, you probably do not need to watch this. But for millions of "Gleeks" worldwide, Glee: The 3D Concert Movie gave a lot of irresistible charms. I only wish they are not only focused in 3 fans in particular to share the real effects of the show to their fans. This movie is what the show is about: celebrating differences and accepting who you are. Glee feels really personal and if you're not connected to the show, don't watch this!

Glee the Concert is not based off the show, its just another 3D concert to steal our money, but actually I enjoy their singing. I am not a fan of the show, but I am of their songs, call it one of my guilty pleasures.
