I am a massive fan of lady gaga so i really enjoyed this show, and would 100% recommend it ! it is really personal and enjoyable. there is one scene where lady gaga is topless, and strong language is used very little throughout the film. whether you like lady gaga or not i would still recommend it !

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Intent upon revealing as much of herself as she'll allow fans to see, including moments both intimate and painful, Lady Gaga entrusts a talented director with the job; overall, he delivers. It's an eclectic work: Attention is paid to many facets of the singer-songwriter's life, and not in a linear order. But the movie builds, culminating in moments from her phenomenal appearance at the 2017 Super Bowl. Fans may yearn for more of the vibrant performances and music that the alter ego of Stefani Germanotta is famous for, but they'll probably be satisfied with this up-close-and-personal vision of the star when she's not on stage.

That doesn't mean that her talent is neglected. There are several show-stopping musical numbers that attest to her artistry, and they are stunning. Along with those, however, the talented lady wants us to know how she suffers for her art, how she transcends a disabling injury and frequent pain, and how she calls upon her bountiful gifts and her commitment to excellence to succeed. Gaga: Five Foot Two should please existing fans and bring her some enthusiastic new ones.
