Movie Reviews

A Heartbreaking Account of What Fame Can Do to an Individual
TV Critic | 03/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When 'Britney: For the Record' premiered in the winter of 2008, the world got answers to one of the most infamous breakdowns in entertainment history. Britney put herself out there and talked candidly about her tough years after her marriage broke-up, years that included shaving her head, stints in rehab, losing custody of her two sons, being drugged and taken advantage of by a manager who she thought had her best interest at heart and with two emergency trips to the psychiatric ward in the hospital, she finally got saved by her family who took the reigns and removed the bad influences from her life and helped her as she worked hard to rebuild the life that was torn apart.
This is no ordinary documentary, it's not a fluff piece and it's not 'pity me, I'm rich and famous and don't like it' piece either. It's simply Britney, up close and personal as she talks about what happened in the past and how she's looking forward to a brighter future. As she geared up for what would become the greatest comeback in history, Britney assures fans that while she isn't 100% recovered from her hell years, she is definitely on her way and in a much better place than she was.
This is a must have DVD for Britney fans and for entertainment fans in general. It's important to see that while being rich and famous seems like it's euphoria, it comes with it, a lot of pain, stress and constant scrutiny. It lets fans go past the tabloids and paparazzi and see the true Britney."
Finally she respondes!

"It seemed for years that you didn't even have to be a tabloid addict to keep up with Britney Spears. Her antics weren't just spread all over EVERY magazine cover, but even make it to the national nightly news! You also don't have to be a genius to figure out that half the stuff in those magazines didn't seem quite right, though. Finally Britney shows us a little look into what it's like to be the worlds most famous celebrity. Some critics say that it doesn't really explain everything (Why exactly did she shave her head?? How did this guy take control of her life?) she touches on most of the highlights, but the poor girl's life is public enough - can we at least allow her to keep SOME secrets to herself?

You're probably a Britney fan if you're looking at this so I doubt I have to convince you that her music is awesome. I highly recommend this DVD not just because it's important for fans, but it's definately a historical video that prompted one of the biggest comebacks of all time.

Get it!"
A MUST for Britney fans

"I watched this live and it's amazing. Sad to see how she has to live her life, especially the paparazzi moments. And let's be honest people, she looks AMAZING after having 2 kids. Bottom line, she's a great entertainer and a hard a** worker."
Britney back to her best!

"The film follows Britney Spears on her comeback trail and delivers what it promises - a no holds barred glimpse into her inner world where no question is dodged.

It's a really honest film and Britney looks as pretty as her early days before all the crazy stuff. She is also a lot happier and tries to reason and explain her past mistakes. In her words, she isn't looking for pity, just a little understanding.

Britney really is in great shape, back to her former self. And she's actually quite fun when you get to know her more as this intimate portrayal of her private life reveals.

Well done, Britney! Welcome back!

Highly recommended!"
