Ridiculous guilty pleasure! I would put this in the same category as 'Being Mick' (2001) in that it's a fully endorsed glimpse into the private life of an egotistical and moody entertainer who lives in a fantasy world most will never come close to experiencing. Elton John's husband David Furnish directed and shot this and it essentially amounts to a glamorized home movie. What's enjoyable about Tantrums & Tiaras is it's a "warts & all" snapshot of Elton John, family man and full-on fucking diva. I'm certain we don't get to see the truly looney shit that must go on, but there are some beautiful hissy fits and ridiculous realities that come from being a flamboyant zillionaire. Reserved & recommended for a time you don't want anything too demanding. Unlike Sir Elton at the flower shop.
