Now I know why I love *Queens*...sleep well!! What a cast!! I'm 69 yo and my Mom loved Li and had a lot of his music, we watched him on TV every chance. As a young girl I wanted his wardrobe. Now I believe in PETA, how we change. Thanks for the memories.

Interesting and entertaining. Good acting, sets, production, score. I give it a 4/5. That's entertainment!

7.8/10 The most shocking and disturbing element for me was not Liberace's sexual proclivities. It was the manner in which he treated his successive conquests as disposable. I always perceived him to be warm and caring. I suppose we all have different standards for what that means. I certainly hope that was only part of some writer's imagination. Michael Douglas nailed the speech and mannerisms of the late Liberace. Good for a one time viewing. The sets are dazzling.

I thought I was watching the REAL Liberace onscreen ! OMG - Douglas captured him beautifully ! Damon was a wonderful sidekick that accentuated the insane vanity and insecurities in Liberace. I adored this movie. Its a winner 10/10

The performances were just amazing....Micheal Douglas and Matt Damon blew me away with this one. 5/5

Drags a little towards the end but holds up as a bizarre, funny and open portrait of a superstar. Watch if you can handle the sight of constant glittering rhinestones.

Great cast and well played by everyone, Michael Douglas and Matt Damon especially. I'd love to see one made on Liberace's early life, his relationship with his mother and siblings, his early career and rise to fame and when he was in films and TV in the early days, too. For the era it covered, it was well done and the sets, costumes etc were spectacular.

Great movie! I didn't know the story of Liberace, but Michael Douglas played this incredible character that to many has never been forgotten. In all honesty he's such an amazing actor at everything he does. Matt Damon in this supporting role was magnificent. I've never seen anything like this from him. I guess very true to form for the both of them. The Rob Lowe character was so funny, I couldn't help but laugh. Did they really look like that in the 80's? Wow, is all I have to say. Totally enjoyable for fans to say the least. 4/5

Stunning performances; an excellent biographical look at 70s and 80s, the dawn of AIDS... An amazing movie! 9/10

Wow. Just wow. Hair, makeup, 70's, 80's, interior design, clothing, dogs, jewelry, cars. Michael Douglas is utterly convincing as an old queen. The transformation of Matt Damon's character is fascinating and poignant - the relationship changes him physically as well as emotionally. Rob Lowe is amazing and needs to do more work. Dan Aykroyd is magnificent as well. So many toupees, so little time...

I've been dying to see this and it was a really enjoyable movie. A totally unexpected role for Michael Douglas to take on, and he rocked the hell out of it. Superb job. Matt Damon was great too.

Despite stellar performances by Michael Douglas and Matt Damon (and their makeup artists), this movie made me sad. I thought I might enjoy learning more about Liberace but seeing how such a narcissistic man could groom a young boy to become his plaything, (he was 16 when they met), then discard him once he tired of him, was depressing. Apparently the real Scott Thorson, although he garnered a little fame and money from his tell-all book, is still having problems with drugs all these years later. The weird plastic surgeon, Dr. Startz, ably portrayed by Rob Lowe, later committed suicide due to all the malpractice suits (over 100) filed against him. Great acting and production values,lavish sets and costumes, but sad if you look beyond the glitz.
