  • It could have been the 21st-century Showgirls. I wouldn't have missed that for the world. Instead, Burlesque, starring Cher and Christina Aguilera playing drag queen versions of themselves with all the vitality of Madame Tussauds wax dolls, is a bust that lacks the pizzaz and bugfuck nuttiness of Paul Verhoeven's 1995 trash epic. show more

  • Basically a theme-park version of a tawdry tradition. show more

  • Burlesque is a preposterous and intermittently entertaining lesson in how to make a movie musical with a little brains and a lot of talent. show more

    How does moviephone know I\'m checking reviews when I haven\'t logedin?Well, considering my Orientation, I\'m obligated to praise anything with both Cher and Christina in it but this was remarkable....but in the right mood, Moulin Rouge is a favorite. Cuba Libro and long live the Free Spirit. Peace.

    I have always been a Cher fan, musically as well as acting. Paired up with Christina was brilliant. Although I am not usually attracted to musicals, I love this film and being a true lover of music, Christina fully succeeds to give me those chilly goose bumps, especially on \"Bound to You\". Santa brought me the soundtrack CD and I play it very LOUD in my car. Thanks Christina and Cher :)

    Saw it on TV last night for the first time! Thoroughly enjoyed the performers, specially Christina. Great movie regardless of what the critics say. Top notch...Better than Glee which is a fun show. Let\'s have more musicals and down with American Idol!!!! Doesn\'t anyone remember Star Search???!!!! Tired of reality TV. Bring back Carol Burnett-type TV shows!!!!!!
