    If you're not a big fan of Gaga, or even if you think she's Madonna lite, this HBO concert film will make you a true believer--or a believer, at any rate.

    Filled with more shoulder pads than an episode of The Golden Girls, the special is actually at its best between songs when Gaga dishes out hilarious asides like "The only thing better than a unicorn is a gay unicorn."

    Unsurprisingly, HBO's Lady Gaga Presents the Monster Ball Tour: At Madison Square Garden raises more questions about Stefani Germanotta than it answers, which is probably as it should be.

    You just have to wade through a landfill of lame camp and gratuitous weirdness to get to the pop center of Gaga's HBO show.

This is heaven for Lady Gaga fans. Loved all the performances. Don't forget the costumes, they where awesome. My favorite was the white dress she wore when she was lifted on strings. She did cuss a lot which didn't bother me at all. The monster did scare me for some strange reason. If your a Little Monster and haven't seen this yet, watch it! Expand
