Hardened film writers are indicating that the upcoming Justin Bieber concert documentary Never Say Never should give the 16-year-old singer what the Beatles’ Hard Day’s Night gave them: legitimacy. Nearly all of them remark that the movie, being rushed out on Friday in order to take advantage of Bieber Fever, paints the 16-year-old as a hard-working, likable entertainer, and that it is likely to come close to equaling the $31.1 million that Miley Cyrus’s similar doc pulled in three years ago. Michael Rechtshaffen in the Hollywood Reporter describes the movie this way: “An energetic 3D portrait of the global superstar as a down-to-earth teen from small-town Canada, the 105-minute documentary works overtime (by about 10 minutes too long) to change his perception from fluke Internet phenom to the hardest working 16-year-old on the planet.” The film, which premiered at the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles on Monday, is due to be rolled out beginning on Friday.
