Katy Perry: Part of Me

Singer Katy Perry tells all in the documentary Katy Perry: Part of Me.

The film gives fans access into Perry’s world of music and real life struggles, revealing the work, devotion, and talent of the singer, who promotes herself as staying true to who she is and her image in order to reach her dreams.

Directed by Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz (both of Hunger Hits Home), the PG-rated movie includes behind-the-scenes interviews, footage of Perry with her friends and shots of rehearsals and choreography. Katy Perry’s signature style also is explored.

Katy Perry: Part of Me got decent reviews from critics and was enjoyed even more by moviegoers, earning 76% approval by critics and 81% by audieces, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Critics praised the concert performances, but they criticized the film for not going deep enough into who Perry really is. Slate.com’s Dana Stevens said, “We’re left with zero sense of what she’s really like as a granddaughter, sister, boss or friend.” And Boston Globe’s Mark Shanahan said, “Part of Me is one aspect of Perry, but her fans may leave the movie wanting more.”

Katy Perry: Part of Me Blu-ray 3D boxThe film’s box-office gross might show that to be true. The 93-minute documentary earned $24.8 million in theaters, way less than the $73 million take of 2011 backstage music movie Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, which Cutforth and Lipsitz produced.

All three home versions of Part of Me, DVD, Blu-ray/DVD Combo and Blu-ray/DVD/Blu-ray 3D Combo, include a downloadable digital copy of the movie and instant streaming with UltraViolet.

Both of the combo packs offer extra footage in the special feature “Behind the Scenes of the California Dreams Tour.”

U.S. copies of the Blu-ray and DVD sets also contain a Pink Ticket that allows fans to enter to win prizes including the chance to meet Perry, available through www.KatyPerryPinkTicket.com.
