Documentary: Katy Perry's year-long concert tour is presented in 3-D, which covers a period of time when the singer realized great personal success and personal heartbreak as her marriage crumbled.
The documentary charts the rise of pop star KATY PERRY who recently became the first performer in history to have five No. 1 hits featured on a single album. The audience learns of her upbringing as the daughter of a husband-and-wife team of traveling Pentecostal Christian ministers. They see her early success recording a Gospel album in Nashville, followed by her eventual coming of age and moving to Los Angeles to make it in the music business.

Far from an overnight sensation, Perry struggles for several years but is eventually signed to Capitol Records and shoots to stardom on the back of the controversial hit single, "I Kissed a Girl." The film chronicles her latest world tour, with a grueling schedule that takes Perry, her supportive sister ANGELA HUDSON, her circle of friends, and supporters to a whirlwind list of venues in Las Vegas, Japan, and Brazil.

At the same time, she meets comedian RUSSELL BRAND who she marries. But the stress of dueling stardom and the demands of her tour put distance between the two, and the marriage falls on hard times. Perry learns of Brand filing for divorce just prior to a major concert in Sao Paulo, and she must overcome her extreme sadness and depression to put on the show.

Yes. Perry's fan base definitely skews young to very young, with mostly girls age 6-19 enjoying her music but quite a number of boys also.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
