Philadelphia Inquirer

By Carrie Rickey
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.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By James Adams
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.

USA Today

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