Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (7 ):
Kids say (20 ):

Ariana Grande: Excuse Me, I Love You stands apart from other recent music documentaries of singers of her generation by sticking almost solely to concert performances. There are very few off-stage scenes and they offer little to no insight into her life or personality. Grande has a versatile and seemingly effortless vocal talent, but her concerts are so meticulously choreographed and staged that they feel almost as much about the mise-en-scène as the music. She comes across as generous in sharing the spotlight on stage with her musicians and dancers, but off-screen scenes are limited to mostly superficial chats with tour companions. Some toss-in visual effects -- the occasional slow-mo and opening credits with the image turned sideways and words upside down -- don't add a whole lot to the film.
