    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.

    It strains to celebrate diversity and individualism, while its processed music exemplifies strict corporate teamwork.

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

    Even as a concert movie, there are some stumbles.

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

    "Glee: The 3D Concert Movie'' is as normal as spin-offs aimed at your wallet get, which is to say it's substandard in most departments.

    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.

    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.

    The layers of artifice are many, but they always are; the original show has never aspired to be anything but a cheeky, tuneful and multicultural spin on hoary high school stereotypes.

    Even the totally Gleeked-out, most ardent fans of Fox's hit television show Glee may find that the franchise's latest endeavor leaves little to sing about.

    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.

    The title promises a concert movie, in 3-D, based on the show Glee, and the film delivers precisely that, in a way that I believe is sure to overjoy fans of the show.

    The Fox TV phenomenon is the Lewis & Clark of discovering new revenue streams. And this big-screen iteration is just as buoyant and bright-eyed as the rest of the franchise.

    You get the feeling that you're actually there, with the best seat in the house.

    The 3D Concert Movie is by and large for Gleeks only.

    It's entertaining at face value, but they never let it be just that.

    Even the uninitiated could do a lot worse than this 80-minute musical valentine to the outsider in us all.

    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."

    Haters, head for the door. But Gleeks? Get your "Glee" on.

    Don't be puzzled; just go with it -- that's the Glee spirit.

    A high-school talent show, no doubt, but, at its best, well worth glorifying.

  • Todd McCarthy Hollywood Reporter (Top Critic)
    Sprinkles only a few highlights of real musical talent through an otherwise blatant pat-on-the-back montage.

    Is it calculated? For sure. But it does what it needs to do to please its target audience. Everyone else may as well surrender to the juggernaut.

    I'm calling bullsh** on this 3D concert movie. The movie plays like an evangelical prayer meeting, though I'd hold the hallelujahs.

    The 3-D ... is negligibly bedazzling when the high-wattage charm of natural showman Darren Criss - leading all-male group the Warblers as Blaine - and the effortlessly appealing Chris Colfer as Kurt already pop off the screen.
