A documentary that follows a billionaire couple as they begin construction on a mansion inspired by Versailles. During the next two years, their empire, fueled by the real estate bubble and cheap money, falters due to the economic crisis.
This film received a PG rating, making it the second film from MTV Films to receive that rating after Napoleon Dynamite, and the first documentary film from the studio to do so. See more »
In one scene, Katy Perry is seen receiving an award at the 2011 American Music Awards before the film cuts to a backstage scene of Lady Gaga supposedly congratulating her, despite the fact that the latter artist did not attend that awards show. (The backstage scene actually takes place at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards.) See more »
I got an ass like Nicki Minaj in this one.

Movie milks her divorce for all it's worth. Her concerts are colourful, fun and sexy
IF you're a fan of US singer Katy Perry, you'll love this
autobiographical concert movie of her songs and life.
If you don't know anything about her, you'll still enjoy the movie as it follows the structure of these kind of movies: it has many concert performances and interviews with her family, friends and fans about what a great singer and person she is.
The movie follows her on a year-long tour last year to promote her album, which produced five No. 1 hits, the first for a female artiste.
The movie would have been a normal one but for the way it milks her divorce from British comedian Russell Brand for all it's worth. Brand filed for divorce in December 2011 after 14 months of marriage.
It shows what led to the divorce (him wanting to have a baby; she not being interested in becoming a mum now) and then her finally accepting the divorce, complete with a breakdown, just before the start of her concert in Sao Paolo, Brazil. She even contemplates cancelling the concert.
This will certainly brings tears to many, as it did to me.
I enjoyed her concert shows as they were vibrant, energetic and colourful. "Thank you for accepting my weirdness," she tells the camera and her fans.
Her niceness permeates the movie, and you can see why her mostly white fans adore her, dress like her, mime her lyrics and say how much she inspires them and gives them hope.
