The Burlesque Lounge: Alternate Full Musical Performances!
Top Customer Reviews
Now by the name implied there are probably some who think that the movie involves non-stop strippers in various states of undress. Those folks will be disappointed. But fans of both Cher and Christina Aguilera and their singing abilities will find that the movie delivers all that they could hope for and more.
Aguilera stars as Ali, a young girl from a small town with dreams of something more. She wants to sing and dance and so one day heads to Los Angeles. She arrives and searches for a job only to be turned down time after time. She sees the sign for a club called Burlesque and enters just to find out what's going on. Inside she sees a bevy of beauties dancing on stage in skimpy outfits lip synching some classic tunes. Desperate for a job, she's directed to the club's owner Tess (Cher) by bartender Jack (Can Gigandet).
Ali stumbles through her request, begging for the chance to be a dancer in the show, but Tess turns her down telling her to come back when they have auditions. Returning to the bar Ali sees an opportunity when a waitress offers terrible service. Putting her past skills to use, Ali takes on the role of waitress telling Jack if she doesn't do better than his current staff, she'll walk but if she does, she gets a job. Needless to say she gets the job.
Tess and show production co-coordinator/best friend Sean (Stanley Tucci) notice her working and let it pass.Read more ›
My daughter talked me into going to see Burlesque. I'm not a Cher fan, but I do enjoy Christina Aguilera's music. I was shocked, amazed, totally entertained. Surprised by a great story line and I loved the costumes! I found the movie to be invigorating and very exciting!
Christina Aquilera is both down-to-earth and sexy as the country girl who wants to make it in the big city, Cher lords it over everyone as the tough-but-lovable boss of the burlesque house, and Stanley Tucci is once again everyone's gay best friend. Making all of the preceding palatable to the guys in the audience is the general air of sexiness pervading the proceedings, in large part generated by the wonderfully skimpy costumes worn by Ms. Aquilera and the variety of women performing on stage with her. The songs are very good, too.
Trust me, guys, if you owe your wife a movie pick after dragging her to numerous sci-fi action thrillers, you can do worse than heading out to this one. Kudos to writer/director Steve Antin for delivering a fun night at the movies.
