Glee: the 3D Concert

JOY REVIEW

I need to tell you several things. First of all, I’ve never seen the show, although I know Jane Lynch. Number two: there is no reason in the world for this to be in 3D. Number three, concert films are not anybody’s favorite venue; they just don’t work terribly well. But, having said this, if you’re a Glee fan, I think you’ll have a great time at this. If not, I’d probably skip it. But, not knowing very much about Glee — I mean, I know about it — but, not having watched it, I can tell you that I understand the appeal just because there are a lot of kids who are not the kind of prom queen– as they show you with their little loser sign the whole time. They’re people who are kind of in the fringe of high school and they break into song—immediately, for any reason. The songs are okay, and there are a couple of good voices and a lot of cute kids, and they dress like kids, look like kids, and act like kids and the audience goes wild. So, if you’re a Glee fan, you’ll probably enjoy this. If not, pass unless you’re curious about the fuss. I’d give it two stars just if nothing else for focusing on kids who feel that nobody pays any attention to them. As a film, I think it’s a bit lame, as a social document, I think it’s a little stronger, so I give it two stars.
