Will you take your tween/teen to see new Bieber movie?

The new Justin Bieber 3-D movie “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” opens today, and I am grateful that none of my kids are into him.

I would probably take them if they did love him. If it was a Taylor Swift movie we would all be there!

The one part of the movie that I think I would like my kids to see (based on the commercial) is his dedication to accomplish something. You have to admire his drive whether you like his hair or his sound.

Here is Entertainment Weekly’s review of the movie. It shockingly gave it a B plus.

This is more of a news story about the movie from The New York Times.

So what do you think: Will you take your tweens/teens to see “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” this weekend or ever? (Maybe that’s what the title means – never say you’ll never go.) Will you pop for the 3-D? Do you think he’s talented? Do you think he’s better or worse than other pop teen idols? Did you see the Miley Cyrus movie or the Jonas Brothers’ movie — wait was that one movie or two?

No, can’t figure out what the attraction is to this kid.

No, we will not be seeing this one. My boys are not Bieber fans. Re popping for 3-D, not if I have a choice. I only see 3-D when it is the only option. I find 3-D movies distracting.

Yes, we will go. I don’t mind his music. I took my kids to his December show at Philips, and we all had fun.

Nope, the girl (8) thinks that he can’t sing and is ugly..Her words..The boy (8) has no desire to see him or the movie..

My son (10) went to a free sneak preview Wednesday and he says he enjoyed it but that’s all he said about it. He likes him ok but has never asked about going to a concert or even buying his CD. He went with the Boys & Girls Club and most of the kids (elementary and middle schoolers) were excited and talking about the movie & singing when they got back. I doubt very seriously if he would have asked to go see it on his own but then he rarely does. He would rather spend the money we would use for movie tickets and snacks to buy a game for his DSi.

No. Why would I teach her to waste her money like that? The music is atrocious and even the tween thinks he’s lame.

Bieber is evil….. burn Bieber…. I want to see Bieber on TMZ hanging out in a trashy motel, “ladies of the night”, booze, pills, a clown and a monkey.

Bieber is evil. Crash and burn, Bieber – I will enjoy the downfall.

So glad my son was never into the the tween fad music.

Love the superbowl commercial:
“What’s a Beiber?
Looks like a girl.”

JJ, so what did you think of Shawn Cassidy?

Yeah I know I am getting older and am starting to sound like my parents, but it turns out they were a lot smarter than I though, lol

Just hope one day my daughter thinks the same thing.

LOL @ Photius for both comments.

No on the Bieber movie- my girls think he is an overpaid, can’t sing gay boy who doesn’t realize he his gay (their words, not mine)

Then again….my tweener can’t stand the Twilight stuff either. I guess she just doesn’t jump on the bandwagon. They didn’t ask to see any of the other movies either. None of them do I consider “idol” material for my kids. I’ve taught them to appreciate “old school” music, of many types, and that an actor/sports figure/ musician are not idols and things to worship. They are simply people who put their pants on the same way we do, even if they get paid more to do it. If you get put up on a pedestal….it’s just further to fall down! :o)

Thankfully my kids cannot stand Bieber. Unfortunately, the girl in our carpool to/from middle school is a Bieber addict. I am quite sure she will see the movie and we will have to hear all about it. She cannot complete a conversation without mentioning him.

JJ — that was the big comparison in the NYT article I believe was to Donny Osmond — We did love Donny osmond and Sean Cassidy — not so much Leif Garrett — I had Donny and Marie Barbie dolls — remember being at a spend the night party and a little girl said she was going to sleep with the Sean Cassidy poster under her — didn’t make sense at the time – maybe she didn’t mean it that way. Bieber is a cute little guy. I think Selena seems too mature for him though. she is older than he is.

I have to say I wasn’t a Bieber fan…at all and I agreed with the “What’s the big hype theory” But with a 12 and a 6 year old girls I have been surrounded by his posters and music, and after I saw the movie today with them I get it. I’m sorry to say I now have Bieber fever! No choice on my part. He’s a great kid and a great performer. Gotta give him props.

Lots of stuff is “popular” but you don’t need to encourage your tween to follow every harebrained fad there is. That’s one thing that is wrong nowadays. Too much “chasing the fad” instead of real, basic values.

Only my opinion.

TWG – no Bieber in the car for the car pool child. It’s my car! LOL. Actually, by the time I have three girls in the car babbling I would not hear the radio anyway.

Justin Bieber is a kid who managed to grab the brass ring of stardom and has smart enough handlers that he is milking it for every dollar he can while he can. Nothing wrong with that. Don’t know if he’ll make it past pubescent rock star, but meanwhile, he’s inoffensive. I don’t know why people get so twisted over whether or not kids enjoy different teen rock sensations — every few years, there’s a new one for a new group of teeny-boppers, Our parents survived ElvisWe survived David Cassidy, my daughter survived Backstreet Boys, . . . today’s kids will survive Bieber.

No — Thankfully, our son doesn’t care for him and, frankly, neither do we. Not sure we would agree to the movie even if he wanted to go; unless he could go with friends.

Yes,we will see the movie, my daughter loves him very much. We saw Justin Bieber in concert and I have to say I think he has a lot of talent and star appeal- he sure can work the crowd. Even my teen son saw the concert and enjoyed it. So far he has been wholesome and a good role model…I pray that he will stay that way. We also saw the Miley movie and the Jonas Brothers movie…also saw them live. We all had a great time.

Since you asked…my Tween (11) has announced she thinks Mr. Bieber is Gross and “old news”. That’s fine.

My 8 yo thinks Mr Bieber is a total babe, but given the choice will still pick Mr Lautner (Jacob of Twilght) every time. She does want to see the Bieber movie, and likely we will at the $1.25 theatre.

Mom on the other hand would like someone to go with to see the King’s Speech.

TWG–Miley had 2 movies…best of both the worlds and the one where she goes home to TN. We saw the later one. Frankly, my kids grew out of Hannah, but we did watch the Series Finale and I have to say I was glad how the very end happened. Miley made the right choice in the end and really made a statement on several levels, whether she meant to or not.

Jonas had a movie? Probably but then my children are just so fickle about “Pop Stars” vs real actors.

Db I survived Culture Club, Wham!, and Duran Duran (which my friends favored) and my friends survived Van Halen, Motley Crew, and Aerosmith (which I favored). Somehow our parents survived all of it….but then my friends and I knew Elvis, The Drifters, Frankie Valli, etc…..Classic Rock is just that Classic (and uh yeah some of that classic was big with my parents, and me, and my kids….like Queen).

@FCM: Haha, I was in the music section of Borders the other day, and couldn’t help but notice that a lot of the sappy, heartfelt music I remembered from the late 60’s/early 70’s (John Denver, the Carpenters, etc.) are now in the “Easy Listening” section. Suddenly I felt every single one of my grey hairs!

GO WITH YOUR MOM TO SEE “THE KING’S SPEECH.” I loved it, it was wonderful, and I’m really pulling for Colin Firth to get an Oscar for this one. My husband isn’t a big movie fan (alas, I am), but I managed to drag him to “Speech” and even he thought it was great. There’s a lot of historical “smudging”, but it’s an excellent story.
