Boxoffice Magazine
The film is really a valentine to the fans.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
A high-school talent show, no doubt, but, at its best, well worth glorifying.

Slant Magazine
The film is as emotionally manipulative as the show, but it's never appeared more truthful in its aspiration to inspire - and profit in the process.

Tampa Bay Times
For the most part, the performances can raise goosebumps, especially whenever Lea Michele, Amber Riley and Naya Rivera open their mouths.
67
One amusing disadvantage of the crystal-clear, you-are-there 3-D cinematography, and the focus on the audience experience is that in practically every shot, it's easy to pick out off-message concertgoers who are bored, tired, or otherwise disengaged.

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

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

Can't make its mind up about what, exactly, it is.

Great messages, of course. But Glee: 3D is not good enough, it's not smart enough, and doggone it, well, you get the gist.

It's a working illustration of what differentiates movie stars from TV stars. When we buy a ticket for a George Clooney movie, it's because we want to see George Clooney (or Emma Stone or Tom Hanks or whomever). The real stars of "Glee," on the other hand, are the characters, not the actors.
