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]

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.

Fans of the television series may be more uplifted than this carping critic.

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.
August 18, 2011
I found the film insufferable.

The set is big, cheap and nasty. The cast are as choreographed behind-the-scenes as on stage.
August 17, 2011
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.
August 16, 2011
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.
August 14, 2011
Fake and emotionally manipulative, it's aimed specifically at fanatic Gleeks.
August 14, 2011
This movie almost makes me ashamed to be a Gleek. When did Glee become pretentious, pompous and preachy?
August 13, 2011
No one involved seems the least bit worried that a show about social outcasts has become an engine for conformity and consumption.
August 12, 2011
The 3D Concert Movie is by and large for Gleeks only.
August 12, 2011
Here is the problem: If you separate these kids from their characters, if you remove their showtunes from the storylines that make them so dazzling in the fantasy-reality play of the series, then Glee is stripped of its core appeal.
August 12, 2011
Following in the live-film footsteps of Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers, Glee: The 3D Concert Movie transposes its flash-in-the-pan teen-pop phenomenon to three-dimensions with mundane, for-fans-only results.
August 12, 2011
This isn't really a Glee movie as much as it is a movie about how everybody loves Glee. And because of that important distinction, the real theme of the party is "Let's gloat over our own success" and it'll leave non-fans no way in.
August 12, 2011
This is no "Shine a Light" and the execution of the concert footage is pedestrian. But...it is meant for the fans and no one else.
August 12, 2011
One of the many self-actualized real-life Gleeks featured in "Glee: The 3-D Concert Movie" tells the audience, "Be proud of yourself. Don't be afraid. Stand up for what you believe in." OK. I stand for hating "Glee."
August 12, 2011
Even Gleeks who love to watch seasoned showbiz belters pretend to be high school kids on the hit TV series Glee may wince at the cheesy marketing angle of Glee the 3D Concert Movie.
