A pretty effective warning shot across the bow of the one percenters.

Humanizes the upper one percent in a 100-percent entertaining way.

The Popcorn Junkie

Strangely entertaining and revealing documentary about a culture obsessed with money and people aspiring to a life they can't afford. Greed is good once again if you can borrow enough money to consume all you desire. Mind the debt gap.

...their plight plays like the financial crisis in miniature. Or perhaps it's in macro.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

My problem with this riches to rags Americana story is that I felt no sympathy for the featured self-absorbed materialists.

Laramie Movie Scope

If you've ever wondered how that one percent of the richest lives, this film will show you how one family lives (they are probably back in the 99 percent now), and it ain't pretty.

EntertainmentTell

Both the quintessential documentary about the Great Recession, and quite possibly the most Schadenfreude-filled movie of all time.

Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat
Spirituality and Practice

A documentary about a rich couple riding the waves of wealth and greed and then plunging downwards.

Creative Loafing

A powerhouse documentary, the film shifts from simply being a fly-on-the-wall look at material decadence and moral decay into a study of a family trying to hold itself together during a trying period.

Tampa Bay Times

a repetitive exercise in schadenfreude, and the Siegels don't do much to alter that... The Queen of Versailles leaves viewers with one feeling about the Siegels: Let them eat stale cake.

Documentaries are rarely as hilarious as this one. Well, the first half of it at least

Flick Filosopher

[E]nds up an ever less slightly ungenerous look at the .01 percent than it might have been... But this is still a brutal film from many angles.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

One of the great unsayable truths about the American dream is that it is a bit of a Ponzi scheme ... our system admits a glimmer of hope that anyone, no matter how lowborn, can rise to the top.

[Siegel] is now suing Greenfield for "misrepresentation". Well, I know whose side I'm on.

Irish Times

Greenfield's film is bathed in Florida sunshine, adding to the sensation that we're watching Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous with a Marxist punchline.

Never has grotesque wealth looked so unenviable, or its removal been so entertaining, as in this garishly watchable riches-to-rags documentary ...

[Siegel] ultimately emerges as someone who belongs more in The Little House on the Prairie: ever cheerful, and triumphantly unimpeachable.

The temptation to be moralistic must have been overpowering, yet Greenfield finally manages to summon sympathy for people who at first seem vain, selfish and greedy.
