    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    What we do see is mom, dad, Braun, Usher, vocal coach Mama Jan Smith and the burgeoning Team Bieber claiming they only want the best for the boy as he goes through a punishing 84-date concert tour. Group hug. show more

    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    It's a disappointment to see the teen pop star hop in a tour bus. This is a boy who should be traveling across rainbows on the back of a unicorn. show more

    Scott Bowles USA Today

    Never works as a gum-snapper concert movie and does provide a glimpse into instant stardom in the Twitter generation. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    On stage variously with Boyz II Men, Jaden Smith, Miley Cyrus, and Ludacris, Bieber carries himself like a squeaky-clean homeboy with an angelic voice. On him, swagger looks sweet. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Bieber's world - at least as edited for mass consumption - is a refreshingly wholesome universe, where a young superstar is good-natured and grateful, says grace before every meal, and spends all his free time on the tour bus tweeting. He also likes to hug, a lot. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    It generally succeeds, too, thanks to a visually energetic approach by director Jon Chu that keeps all the obligatory backstage/onstage bits moving fluidly. show more

    Washington Post

    It's a fluffy, mildly inspiring, celebration of the hero leading up to his big moment. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    The movie usefully, carefully, and cogently argues that Bieber is more than his hair. He is his hoodies. He is his pop-hooks. He is his many handlers. show more

    James Adams The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Equal parts biopic, concert film and pep rally, the movie's 105 minutes do a good job of conveying the pleasures of pop, courtesy of the very real talents of Justin Bieber. show more

    Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel

    3D or not, the film about the mop-topped Canadian - who turns 17 March 1 - doesn't let us get very close to "the talent." show more
