Featuring Christina Aguilera, Kristen Bell and the Dancers!
Burlesque Christina Aguilera makes her dramatic feature debut as Ali, a small-town singer who takes her shot at stardom performing at a neo-burlesque nightclub in Los Angeles. Situated in a regal old theater that's still dazzling despite having fallen into disrepair, The Burlesque Lounge is the kind of club where legends are born. When club owner Tess (Cher) hires charismatic Ali as a cocktail waitress, the ambitious big-city newcomer goes to great lengths to make a good impression. Taken under the wing of a friendly featured dancer (Julianne Hough), Ali quickly realizes that not everyone is quite as nice when she forms a friendship with bartender/aspiring musician Jack (Cam Gigandet) and incurs the wrath of the club's cattiest showgirl (Kristen Bell). After making her leap to the stage with a little help from a sympathetic stage manager (Stanley Tucci) and the club's playfully androgynous host (Alan Cumming), Ali becomes the star attraction at The Burlesque Lounge, and the crowds start packing in. Later, a wealthy businessman (Eric Dane) makes a bid for the club while trying to charm the talented young performer straight into his arms. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Great singing and songs

Great make up, costumes And excellent dance routines. The last song is the most exciting to listen and watch. The music and songs crescendo the movie to the very end. The ending is fun to hear and see.

Burlesque- Not as bad as you may think
Posted by: ValleyGuy72 from: North Los Angeles, CA on
We saw this in the theater with high expectations of 90 minutes of absolute trash. We walked out having been highly entertained. Christina is not the next Meryl Streep. Cher. She was better than the script. Stanley Tucci- such a talent this guy is. Believe it or not- it all worked.

The writing isn't Academy worthy, but this is a fun movie for the teen plus crowd.

I bought the movie to check out the music and set design. It was good.
Story content...too predictable.
Great for a mental escape though.

If you love Cher you will love this movie! Christina didn't do too bad for her first time at drama.
