What's up with all the flack this movie's been getting from critics? It's absolutely dazzling! This has to be one of the best musicals of the past decade. The musical numbers are phenomenal, the costumes are fabulous, and Christina is just marvelous. I've always known she was a great talent but I think this movie is just what she needed to showcase that talent. Her acting was good, her dancing was on point and what can I say about that voice? I'm not a fan of Cher but I really enjoyed her in this movie. Christina and her have great chemistry. The love story was also really cute. I'm salivating for this to come out on DVD/blu-ray so I can watch it over and over again!

Burlesque is awesome! Its pure entertainment. Singing, dancing, acting, romance - oh my! The cast is wonderful! A classic story told again in a throwback to the musicals which is a formula that always works with the right people and the right music and in the right setting and it works here. I am bias to Christina Aguilera. :) She's an amazing singer and I am pleased to say in her acting debut she is terrific. I adore her with the very handsome and sexy Cam Gigandet. :) Who by the way can offer me a box of Famous Amos cookies ANYTIME! lol Anyone who likes musicals and romance or just wants to get away from movies about gangsters, pyschos and dead bodies will definitely enjoy this enjoyable movie. I love it!

Guys, don't be afraid to see the film "Burlesque" with your wives. Ladies, don't feel guilty asking your husbands to go. I caught the film over the weekend with my wife Alison (her pick), and ended up enjoying it quite a bit.

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.

After reading the review by Robert Horton I wondered if he had actually seen this movie. I loved Burlesque the first time and loved it the second time and am waiting for the DVD to be released. It is totally entertaining and at times I almost applauded after some of the dance numbers. Cher does a stand up job in her role but if you don't like Cher go see this movie for Christina Aguilara....she blew me away with her talent. It is a feel good movie that will leave you wanting the soundtrack.

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!

On occasion you'll see a movie where you're not quite sure what to expect or perhaps think you'll see something only to be surprised. It may not be the best movie ever made, but it does offer a touch of entertainment, doesn't bore you to tears and even puts a smile on your face. BURLESQUE is one of those movies.

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.
