About the Movie
Ali (Christina Aguilera) is a small-town girl with a big voice who escapes hardship and an uncertain future to follow her dreams to LA. After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theater that is home to an inspired musical revue, Ali lands a job as a cocktail waitress from Tess (Cher), the club's proprietor and headliner. Burlesque's outrageous costumes and bold choreography enrapture the young ingenue, who vows to perform there one day. Soon enough, Ali builds a friendship with a featured dancer (Julianne Hough), finds an enemy in a troubled, jealous performer (Kristen Bell), and garners the affection of Jack (Cam Gigandet), a bartender and fellow musician. With the help of a sharp-witted stage manager (Stanley Tucci) and gender-bending host (Alan Cumming), Ali makes her way from the bar to the stage. Her spectacular voice restores The Burlesque Lounge to its former glory, though not before a charismatic entrepreneur (Eric Dane) arrives with an enticing proposal...

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Has the glitz and allure of a Victoria's Secret ad. What it doesn't have is an imaginative reinvention of the show-biz cliches that have so adamantly inspired it.
Rotten: Burlesque manages what seemed impossible: It is filled with half-naked dancing girls, yet it's still boring.
Fresh: Even the dances feel cozily dated, as choreographers Denise Faye and Joey Pizzi borrow liberally from Bob Fosse.
Rotten: Burlesque may be aiming for Cabaret-style glamour, but mostly it plays like stale cheese.
2 Thumbs Up!!!
One of year's greatest shows. From the moment it starts, anticipation of what's going to happen next just never stops. Great vocals by Christina & Cher alike. Dancing from all the cast is a must see for all ages. Don't pay attention to what the critics say in the "Tomato Review", as, from what I've found, most critics don't know what they're talking about. Would not be surprised but what this becomes one of the modern classics.
