Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience

A gimmicky, for-fans-only concert flick starring Disney Channel tweener sensations Kevin, Nick and Joe Jonas. Footage of Anaheim and Madison Square Garden arena shows are interwoven with the boys’ (strictly G-rated) offstage antics for the chaste delectation of 12-year-old girls everywhere. The brothers themselves — albeit reasonably talented and likable enough — come across as so squeaky clean (each wears a “promise ring”) that they make fellow Mouse House cash-cow Miley Cyrus, the previous subject of a three-dimensional doc by director Bruce Hendricks, seem like Jenna Jameson by comparison. And Hendricks’ labored attempt to recast the Jonases as some sort of nouveau Fab Four via a recurring homage to A Hard Day’s Night feels like wishful thinking. But at a swiftly paced, blessedly brief 76 minutes, the movie is rarely dull, and it should have little trouble satisfying the Jonas faithful, even at an inflated 3D ticket price. HH
