Justin Bieber’s 2011 movie biopic, currently the US’ highest grossing concert film of all time, has been deconstructed to hilarious or blasphemous effect — depending on whose watching — and the result is “Everything wrong with Justin Bieber: Never Say Never in six minutes or less.”
Put together by Cinema Sins, whose resume includes other mega-grossers such as The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers, The Hobbit, Django Unchained and more, the makers contend Never Say Never contains 98 (possibly a pun on its over $98 million worldwide gross) “movie sins.”
These include — product placement abuse, disputing Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun’s oft-said statement that “you haven’t made it until you’ve played New York and you’ve sold out the garden.” With 96 more to go, the ‘movie sins’ continue.
The signature heart-shape sign, the fans, Bieber’s drop-crotch pants, Boys II Men doubling up as back-up singers, Braun’s “never-ending selflessness,” “terrible lyricism” [in reference to "Down to Earth," which is a song written by Justin about his parent's divorce, so that seems a bit cruel] — but you get the gist. It’s not serious but it is well observed.
