Film review: Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience

(Cert U)

It's hard to get too riled by the inoffensive pop-rock of the Jonas Brothers, the wholesome boyband who, after Miley Cyrus, are the second most popular spawn of the Disney Channel music factory.

This TV-special-sized feature comprises songs from the trio's recent Burning Up tour, along with gobbets of behind the scenes action. (Though if I were a 12-year-old girl, I'd definitely feel short-changed by the few brief minutes spent on this "candid" material; it mostly consists of the brothers being led past lines of screaming fans into one record launch or another.)

It's fair to say that the Jonases really do throw themselves into their music; parents can feel reassured that, chastity rings winking in the lamplight, they seem far too preoccupied to pay much attention to the hordes of young girls gibbering hysterically only inches away.
