Consensus: Katy Perry: Part of Me succeeds on the strengths of the pop star's genuine likability, inspiring work ethic, and dazzling stage show, even if it plays somewhat like a PR puff piece at times.

Katy Perry: Part of Me is a commercial, not a diary entry -- and it sticks, far too often, to an already-decided-upon script.

What is worth seeing - and shelling out the 3-D premium for - is Perry's eye-popping showmanship.

Works in this genre can be rollercoasters of bliss and sadness and awkwardness and pain. "Katy Perry: Part Of Me" plays more like an infomercial.

"Part of Me" is more electronic press kit than fly-on-the-wall documentary.

I gained respect for Perry, her work ethic and personal rediscovery.

There's only so much formula the filmmakers can shellac over their subject's increasingly obvious heartbreak.
