The camera follows Justin Bieber (1994- ) during the ten days leading up to his August, 2010, sold-out show at Madison Square Garden. Footage of these ten days of concerts, rehearsals, and down time with boyhood friends, his mom, and his entourage is inter-cut with home movies, old photos, and interviews showing a musical prodigy who loves to perform, comes to the attention of an Atlanta agent via YouTube, impresses Usher, and rockets to international stardom soon after his 15th birthday. His manager emphasizes the importance of social media and of Justin's work ethic and personality in making him a star; the camera emphasizes Bieber's look. His mom and grandparents shine.Written by

There's gonna be times in your life when people tell you, you can't do something
And there's gonna be times in your life when people tell you, you can't live your dreams.
And there's gonna be times in your life when people tell you, you can't sell out Madison Square Garden!
This is what I tell them:
NEVER SAY NEVER!

Tweenage girls rejoice! Your second coming of Christ has made a "movie"! As for the rest of humanity, please don't see this movie. I did not waste the $10 to see this, instead I saw the movie on another unnamed source and I'm thanking myself every second for not wasting money like that. I probably robbed myself the experience of going to the theater and laughing at the brainwashed and culturally-deprived Bieber fan base that would have been there. I did plenty of laughing anyway. The movie was awful from begging to end. I could have watched the movie in a different language and the experience would have been the exact same. This is definitely your cliché rags to riches story. They try to make you feel sympathetic for the kid, but I felt nothing but apathy. The best part were the fan shots. I didn't see ANYONE who wasn't a girl above the age of 16. It's kind of depressing how anyone could consider this culture or art. If you don't believe me, go look at the other reviews on IMDb. Anyone who doesn't think this movie is awful, is and imbecile in their eyes. But I digress. Seriously, if you have an iota of sanity, do not see this movie.
