Plot Outline:

An aging Burlesque Lounge in L.A. finds itself on the brink of collapse - with the troupe caught up in their own problems and businessman threatening to pull the rug out in comes small-town girl Ali Rose. A waitress at the club, she soon finds her calling on stage where her voice may be the ticket the aging club needs to survive. -- Chris Kavan

This came on TV the other day and I was like "Hey, I liked Chicago, maybe this will sort of be like that." It wasn't. It was probably one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Christina Aguilera can sing but she really shouldn't act.

"Burlesque" is a musical drama of Ali (Christina Aguilera) who takes her chance on L.A. On that club which is threatened by a businessman. Until everyone have their eyes on Ali, waitress turned somebody doing the show on stage. I love musical. This one seems off the track. I can't convince myself Christina Aguilera's acting can go a long way- she's not terrible at least. Too much story in it. I'm sure the script was really for TV- not a movie. The production numbers worked well, but I only really appreciate were the "welcome to burlesque..." and the last song.

Wow, is this an absolutely terrible movie. It may even rival Dinner for Schmucks as the worst of 2010. When it's not trying to be Chicago it's trying to be Moulin Rouge, and when it's not trying to be those it's trying to be Cabaret - all of which are much better films, and hell, Cabaret came out 40 years ago. You know it's bad when in the opening minutes Cher is onstage at a burlesque club, because lots of 60+ year old women perform at burlesque clubs. Featuring numerous cliches that nearly beat you to death with their lack of subtlety, terrible acting, and an annoying character at every turn, and you've got an entry in the movie-musical genre that is doing it's best to destroy the movie-musical genre.

This Genie Has Pipes...and a Little Cheese

An entertaining musical that gets the job done. Aguilera is not a bad actress and neither is Cher. So if you like sexy, singing, musicals this is a good one to see.

Granted, there were plenty of cheesy parts to turn many people off but let's be honest here. This is a musical starring Christina Aguilera and Cher. It's entertainment, not storytelling. Most of the cast is good and the dancing is super sexy. Bottom line is that I liked it enough though I don't think it is worthy of any awards (even in the musical or comedy category) but it is infinitely better than Mama Mia! and Dreamgirls.

The story is very typical of any many chick flicks (Coyote Ugly comes to mind) and the actions that occur are also very typical (guy and girl fall in love...blah blah blah). But the dancing and sin...
