Watched it and found it very interesting but Liberace is from my era, so I got quite a bit of the references.

I was so looking forward to it -- but was very disappointed. What a let-down. I love all the actors - but it just seemed trite.

We watched it. It was entertaining and kept our attention, but we were also glad that we didn't go to a theatre and pay to see it.

I was so back and forth as to Michael Douglas' performance -- half the time I couldn't stop thinking that it was just Michael Douglas and his regular walk and talk, and yet in other scenes, I could believe that he sounded like Liberace a little. The acting (and maybe because of the subject) was a little rough and unbelievable at times, but I've seen movies that were a lot worse. Out of 5 stars, I would give it a 3.

Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!

Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!

I recorded it last night and plan to watch it when I get home today. I'd watch Matt Damon read the phone book.

I read the book...it was entertaining, compassionate, and candid - shocking, too.

I'll see the movie when it comes to Pay-Per-View :)

There's no television service where I am (except satellite and I'm not going to pay for that), but if I did watch TV, I actually might tune in for this one. It's pretty rare to have actors of that caliber in a TV film. I've heard clips on the radio, and Michael Douglas has the voice down pat. It's incredibly hard to do Liberace without sounding like a parody, but he has nailed it. If an actor can do an accent/impression that works on radio when there's no help from mannerisms, that's talent.

I don't know if I would pay $10 to see it in the theater, though, just because I never found Liberace that interesting, and the story frankly sounds like a pretty standard unhappy May/December romance. If the younger boyfriend had been a girlfriend, the movie never would have gotten made. If I watched it, I would be watching for the performances, not the subject.

I would like to see it, but I do not get any of the premium TV channels. I have heard that Michael Douglas and Matt Damon are awesome in it.

I would if I had paid t v stations, he was someone who really stuck out back in the day. I had a friend in high school that would imitate him and get me cracking up in art class. If it comes to Netflix or regular programming television I will watch it for sure.

Hadn't even heard of it... hmm. Well, if it airs where I am, sounds like something worth a PVR...

They wouldn't put it in theatres because of the subject material? REALLY???? That's.... just... hrm. All day long for assorted reasons, I've been feeling like it isn't really 2013, and I've been shuttled back into some dark ages... :(

I was surprised to find out that the film was originally made for movie theaters, but the distributor chickened out because of the subject matter and refused to...well...distribute it.

It's shocking that in this day and age, we're still afraid to tell the truth about the world around us, and how folks like Liberace lived decades ago.

I have been waiting for this movie to come out I can't wait to see this and I have to say I didn't think Michael Douglas would be a good fit , but he does look like him only a bit on the thin side cause it was right after his cancer scare. The way they have Rob Lowe look hahaha I have to watch it he looks like he's had plastic surgery , but he said they had his face so tight he was getting bad headaches, looks like it might be quite interesting.
Liberace was quite a showman
