HOW OTHERS RATED THIS MOVIE


Curious if this title is entertaining, any good, and/or has any artistic merit?
Then read OUR TAKE of this film.


(Note: The "Our Take" review of this title examines the film's artistic merits and does not take into account any of the possibly objectionable material listed below).


OUR WORD TO PARENTS:
The following is a brief summary of the content found in this G-rated concert film. A few minor religious and colorful phrases are uttered, while a song might have some implied sexual context (but certainly nothing explicit). Two of the brothers are briefly seen shirtless (and caused tween girls at our screening to shriek in delight).

All sorts of behavior might be enticing for some kids to imitate, a moment involving heights during the concert might be unsettling to some, while some champagne might be present in the form of a scene where it's sprayed onto others from bottles in celebration of the end of a concert.

Should you still be concerned about the film's appropriateness for yourself or anyone else in your home, you may want to look more closely at our detailed listings for more specific information regarding the film's content.

For those concerned with bright flashes of light on the screen, there's a little bit of that from time to time in the film during the concert footage.

For those prone to visually induced motion sickness, there are some moments of shaky/bouncy handheld camerawork in the film.


ALCOHOL OR DRUG USE
  • One of the brothers sprays what appear to be champagne bottles on others after a concert, but the view is too distant to see exactly what it is. In any event, no consumption of whatever it is occurs.
  • BLOOD/GORE
  • None.
  • DISRESPECTFUL/BAD ATTITUDE
  • None.
  • FRIGHTENING SCENES
  • There's a moment in the film when the three brothers stand on small individual platforms atop skinny poles high above the audience at the concert. Those afraid of heights (particularly with a downward looking shot from above them, when shown in 3D, that might create some vertigo issues) might be a little unsettled by the apparent precariousness of their positions.
  • GUNS/WEAPONS
  • None.
  • IMITATIVE BEHAVIOR
  • Phrases: "They're bodacious," "You were so awesome," "Like white on rice" and "That was so cool."
  • The artists' various fashions, dance moves and more might be enticing for some kids to imitate.
  • Kids may end up singing the various songs (repeatedly, possibly to the point of eventual irritation).
  • Kevin bangs a fork on a glass to get his brothers' attention and then tosses that fork at Nick, while Joe shakes the table to simulate an earthquake.
  • The brothers climb out of their vehicle's sunroof and down the hood (since crowds are mobbing the doors).
  • Some kids may imitate the shrieking that occurs in the film from fans.
  • Some girls have what are presumably temporary tattoos on their faces and arms, etc.
  • The guys perform cartwheels, flips and such on stage, while Joe later runs and then slides forward on his knees toward the crowd.
  • Some kids may want to imitate being the band members, as occurs in the film with kids who dress up like the Jonas Brothers.
  • One brother balances a baseball bat on his face.
  • The brothers spray foam on audience members during the concert.
  • One of the brothers sprays what appear to be champagne bottles on others after a concert, but the view is too distant to see exactly what it is. In any event, no consumption of whatever it is occurs.
  • JUMP SCENES
  • None.
  • MUSIC (SCARY/TENSE)
  • None.
  • MUSIC (INAPPROPRIATE)
    A song has a lyric about "I want to kiss you."
  • A song has the lyric, "It's gonna suck" ("when the camera stops rolling").
  • Taylor Swift sings a song that repeats the lyric "You should have said no...before you let it all go" and "Was she worth it?" Some could view that as being sexual in context.
  • Other songs had lyrics that we couldn't fully hear and/or understand, thus presenting the possibility of them potentially containing objectionable material (although it's doubtful considering the band's general wholesome image).
  • PROFANITY
  • At least 3 uses of "Oh my God."
  • SEX/NUDITY
  • There's some slight teen cleavage seen a few times among fans.
  • Backstage at the concert, we briefly see two of the brothers shirtless as they change clothes, but one catches sight of the camera (pretending not to have noticed it there all along) and throws a shirt over the lens, blocking our view).
  • Taylor Swift sings a song that repeats the lyric "You should have said no...before you let it all go" and "Was it worth it? Was she worth this?" Some could view that as being sexual in context.
  • There's a brief view of a statue in NYC of a seated/partially reclining nude male figure, but nothing explicit is seen.
  • SMOKING
  • None.
  • TENSE FAMILY SCENES
  • None.
  • TOPICS TO TALK ABOUT
  • Being a rock 'n roll star and dealing with fans, etc.
  • Putting on a rock concert.
  • The obvious comparisons between parts of this film and The Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night" (silliness, with the band members running from crazed fans, etc.).
  • Teen heartthrobs, ranging from the Beatles through David Cassidy and the "boy bands" of the 1990s (there's a brief video clip about that on a TV the brothers watch).
  • VIOLENCE
  • None.
