There's no plot, no character development, no dramatic arc. It just plops you smack down in the epicenter of the JoBro musical youthquake, and away you go.

Teen sensations can put on an impressive act, just don't ask them to fake-act their "rock-star life."

The film features two guest spots with other artists from the Disney stable, Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift. Swift is a star of the future, and I guess you can bet on her own 3D film in the pipeline, but Demi Lovato, whoever she is, oughtn't give up her day

Fans of the Jonas Brothers, Pavlov and Freud should be equally satisfied for a 75-minute stint.

...the film boasts a preaching-to-the-converted vibe that effectively holds newcomers at arm's length throughout.

Fascinating only for the opportunity to observe the mesmerizing effect of a well-rehearsed, mass seduction on an auditorium filled with willing, adoring girls.

As sunglasses and guitar picks fly...and mics and pointing drumsticks thrust out of the screen, it's a sort of metaphor for the whole film (and the band it captures) to ponder which effects are "real" and which are manufactured in a computer. [Blu-ray]

The music is unmemorable, the staging conventional, the connection between religious and sexual ecstasy very evident.

This does pretty much what it says on the tin, though the interactive "3D" element does introduce a twist of sorts.

Hate the songs. What a lot of hair they have. Don't ask me the names.

Sorry boys, for fear of sounding like an old fuddyduddy, I thought the majority of their pop rock songs sounded pretty much the same. But this film wasn't made for me. It was made for their fans, who will love it.

The songs wash over in waves of such turgid mediocrity that by the end you're praying for it to stop. Thankfully, after 76 minutes, it does - and all is well again.

This personality vacuum is a real problem in a film that purports to depict a day in the life of young pop stars whom audiences can actually relate to.

The movie, sadly, perpetuates the corporate myth that they are musical tyros, boyband savants and the sweetest virgins in the business.

It's A Hard Day's Night all over again, except nobody has bothered to write the brothers some funny dialogue.

This TV-special-sized feature comprises songs from the trio's recent Burning Up tour, along with gobbets of behind the scenes action.

It's a trite cash-in designed to empty pockets, lazily slapped together with concert footage and phoney fly-on-the-wall snippets.

This may be three dimensional poison for Jonas-hating curmudgeons but it's unlikely that any of the band's fans will be asking for their money back.

With their fresh-faced image, it's hard not to snigger when they start spraying the audience with foam guns... Insert your own Freudian interpretation here.
