Currently I am disinterested in his music, but once he ages and is forced to start expanding on his talents, I think we might see something interesting.

Why Justin Beiber and not the thousands of others on the Internet doing basically the same thing?

No one is looking for a hard-hitting expose on Bieber's life, but it would be nice to at least hear the guy speak.

It has come to this: parents who have recorded their children's lives since infancy can see their home films edited into their child's very own 3-D concert documentary.

I think this movie is creepy.

Ultimately, the film is for the fans and they'll find plenty to love here. If you're not a fan, it's going to be painful.

"Never Say Never" is about as revealing as a Canadian snowmobile suit.

There are few insights into his pressured existence and none into his creative process.

At 105 minutes it's exhausting, even though it has been expertly cut together.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
February 10, 2011
The degree of hero-making in effect is unintentionally hilarious -- much of [it] plays like a campaign ad, or a career-highlights montage you'd see for someone's retirement
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 9, 2011
Its insistence on furthering the Bieber brand makes the movie feel more like a well-honed presidential campaign than an insightful look into the teen sensation.
February 10, 2011
The film's premise-that Bieber achieved his superstardom through years of hard work overcoming towering obstacles-is so ludicrously flawed that everything built upon it borders on self-parody.

a calculated big screen infomercial

February 10, 2011
With talent, drive, and 75 dubious handlers who stand to profit wildly from success, anyone can be a star. You just have to follow your heart. Or something like that.
March 8, 2011
A marketmentary trying to be canny but coming off canned. The one truth slipping out of this 105-minute ad is that, at this stratospheric level of social-networked stardom, the star and his entourage float along in a bubble of total self-delusion.
February 18, 2011
It's a given that Justin Bieber's millions of prepubescent girl fans are ill-equipped arbiters of taste. So it goes that this faux documentary is nothing more or less than a 105 minute marketing campaign for the latest teenybopper flavor.

There's no scrimping on the Bieber here, but he's a curiously vague presence, obscured in the shadow of this monument to his brand.
February 18, 2011
Grown-ups will still struggle not to picture a post-puberty sequel featuring DUIs and rehab trips.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 12, 2011
If Never Say Never was merely just a gigantic commercial for the fans, it would be easy to dismiss especially as the cult of Bieber begins to fade with age. But this is an infomercial for the lottery mentality we have in this country.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
February 22, 2011
A blatant promotional and marketing tool, it's a curiously sanitized, if sycophantic documentary, examining the Bieber phenomenon from a bland, 'authorized' viewpoint.
