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

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!!!!!!

Excellent movie! It showed you can work burlesque and still values. The choreography was off the charts, expecially the finally. Christina did an awesome god; she and the entire cast made it look easy!

Enjoyable and Chrisina Aguilera is delightful! Notice how it was well received with those who actually watched it (audience) rather than those (critics) who \"prejudge\" with a bias... (this is where we get the word \"prejudice\" from). Music is great and the dance numbers need to be seen! Forget the critics---they think being snarky is cool....Good old fashioned movie about

An overwrought, underwritten hootchy-kootchy tuner that desperately wants to be "Cabaret," but lacks the edge and historical context to pull it off. Full Review

Burlesque delivers eyeful after eyeful of rapid-fire opulence and spectacle. But its most memorable sight is the indelible image of one star taking flight, and another triumphantly staying put. Full Review

Should you find yourself in the mood for Big Musical Numbers by the score rather than a film, there's a lot to like about Burlesque. Full Review

The good news is that Burlesque, the cliché-ridden Christina Aguilera vehicle about a small-town girl with (yawn) big-city dreams, is not an abject disaster on the level of "Showgirls." Full Review

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