What can I say, I am fascinated with the phenom that has become Bieber Fever! So without further ado, let all the girls in your household scream to their delight with this week’s movie pick. Be sure to see the National Board of Mothers® suggestion at the end for what age is appropriate. Enjoy!

Justin Beiber Never Say NeverNever Say Never

Release Date: February 11, 2011

MPAA rating: G

Starring: Justin Bieber

Running Time: 105 min

This is the story of a little boy, loved by his mom who dreamed big and through dedication and perseverance is getting to live his ultimate dream. Justin Bieber has taken the country by storm with Bieber Fever. Never Say Never takes you on the journey of his quest to live his dream, from his early childhood years to his recent sold out concerts and everything in between.

This movie teaches how hard work pays off when you believe in your dream, be kind along the way, and always remember where you came from. In a time where our country sees lots of turmoil and strife, this movie is an uplifting opportunity to teach the kids how dreams really can come true.

You come away with a respect for the dedication it takes to rise to the top and an appreciation for the talent of a young boy who wasn’t afraid to dream big despite people telling him he would never make it.

The National Board of Mothers® is happy to give this movie the Seal of Approval but does not recommend this movie for viewers under age seven.

It’s a wrap! I hope you enjoy our picks this week and I can’t wait to hear your Bieber feedback!
