BIEBER
From Page 5
with straight faces and deter-
mination, "One day, Justin and
I will be husband and wife." Or
husband and husband, if you
count the creepy old man rock-
ing out to Bieber's hit "Baby" at
the 11:00 showing of "Never Say
Never" last Friday. The film tries
tpfocus on how the star stays
cool and grounded in the midst
of all this craziness.
Rather than becoming a seri-
ous look into the life of a pop
sensation, "Never Say Never"
is more of a propaganda piece.
But it works to a point - Bieber
does come across as an ordinary
kid with really nice managers
and as someone that gives out
free tickets for his concerts to

unsuspecting fans. You learn
he's not perfect (he once broke
the leg on his grandpa's prized
taxidermized fox and blamed it
on his friend), but he prays for
the strength to be better and
believes in his dreams.
At the same time, having to
watch Justin Bieber give back to
his community again and again
is overkill. Though the movie
would have us believe that this
16-year-old boy spends all of
his time doing nice things for
people, it's just not possible. And
trying to make Bieber out to be
a run-of-the-mill kid completely
underscores how extraordinary
his story actually is.
For one thing, as a music pro-
ducer mentions, Justin Bieber
has accomplished more than
*NSYNC had in its day - and
he got to where he is now by

harnessing the power of the
Internet. Currently, JB has over
seven million followers on Twit-
ter - for a sense of comparison,
President Obama only has six
million. Combine that savvy
with his charm, and he becomes
a force to be reckoned with. But
to neglect this part of his story so
entirely and fill the movie with
creepy 3-D shots of him shaking
his infamous locks or all the dif-
ferent moments that he spends
praying make ita little painful to
sit through.
Bieber and his team insist that
he will not be subject to the tra-
ditional child star tragedy. But
all the manipulation involved
in crafting of Bieber's image
in "Never Say Never" doesn't
exactly make him seem any dif-
ferent from a Michael Jackson or
a Macaulay Culkin.

TRAFFIC LIGHT
From Page 5
developed for American audienc-
es as a midseason replacement by
screenwriter Bob Fisher ("Wed-
ding Crashers"). As demonstrat-
ed by his previous work, Fisher
has a keen understanding of adult
friendships.:
These characters aren't buf-
foons and the comedy isn't pro-
pelled forward, for the most
part, by thrusting them into
outlandish situations. Instead,
by the good fortune. of know-
ing its limitations, it gives us
real adults and the humor that's
inherent in .growing up. While
childhood-turned-adult friends
aren't uncommon in the world
of primetime sitcoms, this show
doesn't attempt glitz or glam-

our. It doesn't even take us into
uncharted territory. Rather, it
embraces the known world of
companionship by presenting
three friends who know and love
each other. From there, "Traffic
Light" takes off. The joy lies in
watching old friends deal with
changing times.
These guys are merely kids
grown a little older. They've been
there for each other and as life
takes themin different directions
their past keeps them bonded.
Only old buddies could comfort-
ably explain to one another that
"the burn notice rule (i.e. you
don't talk to ex-girlfriends) made
sense in college ... but we're off
the meal plan now." College may
be over for them, but the famil-
iarity of a college is the glue that
keeps the show lively and fresh.
In addition to a well written

script, there's a strong rapport
among the cast, with a scene-
stealing performance from
Nelson Franklin. He turns the
plight of a recently domesticated
30-something into a tangible
conflict viewers can relate to;
But more importantly,Franklin
can take an awkward silence and
turn it into a comedic gem. One
memorable scene has him ask,
ing for his girlfriend's blessing
to join his friends for drinks. It's
common sitcom ground, but he
approaches it with tact and ease.
The show walks a fine line
between comedy and sentiment,
but never does it force anything
upon the audience. Fromthe
mundane to the silly to the just
plain confusing, "Traffic Light"
keeps it real and invites the audi-
ence to share in the realistic pit-
falls of love and maturity -
