I saw the movie.  Liberace literally remade the guy's face into his vision of the perfect man and he ended up addicted to prescription pain pills, then Liberace kicked him to the curb and he danged near killed Liberace as a result...

I saw it too.  My wife and I liked it.  We thought it was so cheesy it was good.  Michael Douglas played it tongue in cheek and over-the-top, and it worked as a tragi-comedy.
