This was a 3D Concert documentary shot during the Summer of 2011 at the Glee Live! tour. This film basically contains three things. First is background stories of the devoted fans of Glee. Second, it’s a documentary about the Glee cast and where the come from and how they feel about the show. Third, it’s a lot of music from the concert. Really good songs that suit the cast very well.

Directly off the top I’ve got to say I’m not a Glee fan. I can’t figure out what’s the point of these kids covering songs that are not as good as the originals mostly. The back story of the show and the war with Jane Lynch is pretty silly, as is the drama about who is homecoming queen, who’s gay and who isn’t. These folk are good enough singers, but when you have the original, why the excitement about a copy? But I get that it’s entertainment, and there’s nothing wrong with following the show. It’s not any worse than any other soap opera on TV, and it has decent music, even if it’s all covered. So I have not beef with Glee fans. This movie is actually like seeing the concert, if you weren’t able to see it. The background about the obsessed fans is a little creepy, but no more so that Trekkers or Star Wars fanatics.

So my basic attitude is that if you’re a fan of the show, you’ve probably already seen this movie, sitting in the front row of the multiplex with your 3D glasses on. If you haven’t seen it, you’re probably left wondering, like I am, what the big deal is, and you probably don’t even want to rent this. So I’ve included the link to the 3D Blue Ray version of the film from Amazon.com, so that if you’ve already seen it, and simply HAVE To have it in your collection, you can get the 3D version. For the rest of us, there are frequently concerts on TV or live concerts near you that would be a better use of your time than watching this DVD. I found my feet tapping to the music as I multi-tasked during this movie. My wife seemed to enjoy it as well, although I did notice she was playing games on-line while the film was on, so she want’s that into it either I guess.
