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.

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

The zing of the performances and choreography pull it through, and it's hard not to emerge on a sherbety high.

Unless you're the rare 'Glee' fan who fast-forwards through the singing, 'Glee: The Concert Movie' won't fail to entertain.

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.
August 12, 2011
The 3D Concert Movie is by and large for Gleeks only.

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.

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."

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.

There's something a little off about a stage show that features well-paid actors reenacting "loser" characters [that] fans take to heart, before leaving in what were surely limos and jets.

[It] would have worked just as well as a heavily promoted special television event broadcast over Thanksgiving weekend.

It's a relief to be free from many of the "Glee" series' narrative dead-ends and it's possible that Heather Morris performing "Slave 4 U" was why 3D was invented.
August 11, 2011
Bungles everything that's basically appealing about concerts, movies, 3D technology and even the TV show Glee itself.
