Synopsis


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

    Better than anticipated. when I had seen the TV pre view I just was not real sure that I wanted to sped the time or the money to see it. It was totally worth $$. Shear and Christina Aguilara were Stunning performers in this feature. There was an actual Plot to the movie. A must see. i have watched it quite a few times already. Was a bit slow at getting started. Other wise, no qualms. Can't wait for getting together with a bunch of friends and setting up our Zoom Box outside this summer for a summer film night w/ Burlesque on a ''55'' inch screen and we won't forget the Pop Corn !! This movie makes you want to get up and start to dance just like a STAR !!! ENJOY :)

    Cher is unworldly in her potrayal of Tess the Burlesque Queen. She captivates the screen and is up to her game with her tongue in cheek performance. Christina isn't up to great acting, but the musical numbers are so beautiful and excitable thatt this isn't that important. Cher is great on her two songs, proving some singers really sing better as mature performers.The storyline is so corny and sweet that one has to believe in ones' child emotions to enjoy the diversity and talents of the cast. Stanley Tucci is wonderful and his scenes with Cher are loving and the chemistry is there.

    GUYS take my word for this..all the dance girls in this movie are HOT!!! There is something in this movie for both YOU and your GIRL!!! If you are not a Cher or Christina fan, YOU WILL BE after seeing this MOVIE!!!. The dance performances were SEXY...EROTIC and OMG HELLISHLY HOT...The singing voices of both Cher and Christina showcases why they are always imitated by women (and drag queens) alike. Cher hasnt lost her touch and I wish she would do more movies. She is a great actress. Christina is absolutely unbelievable. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!

    I have seen this movie 5x already. It's truly becoming one of my favorites. If you like musicals, and Christina Aguilera, you will LOVE this movie. Christina does such a great job. Lots of great actors/actresses in this movie too (Cher, Cam Gigandet, Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, Eric Dane). The costumes were great, the music was great. I really can't think of anything bad to say about it. I just love it! Watch it!

    Everyone gives this movie a bad rap. However, it is highly entertaining if you're watching it for just a good time and not trying to critique every piece of the movie. Kristen Bell is great! And Cher! Well she's Cher! Pure talent and she looks better than women half her age. Yes it was Christina's first time out of the gate. Give her time.

    Wanted so badly to see Burlesque at the theaters, but wasn't able to go when it came out. I was so glad to find the DVD at Best Buy, at a great Best Buy price, and finally watch this great performance in the comfort of my own home. With my big screen TV, surround sound hookup, and a big bowl of hot buttered popcorn, the theaters have nothing on me!!!

    As a big Christina Aguilera fan, this film was a must see for me. While I will admit it isn't drop-dead amazing, it IS still pretty dang good :) Would have been better if the Best Buy exclusive (a version that included a promotional corset) wouldn't have been pulled from shelves after being pressured from some "mom" organization, sigh.

    This is one of my favorite movies to brighten my day and I was thrilled to see that Best Buy had it in stock and at such a great price. It wasn't on the shelf so the sales associate not only showed me where it would be but went digging through the bin faster than I could! Now that's great customer service!
