Burlesque

It takes a LEGEND... to make a STAR!


Burlesque
A small-town girl with a big voice escapes hardship and an uncertain future to follow her dreams to LA. After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, she lands a job as a cocktail waitress. Burlesque's outrageous costumes and bold choreography inspire her to perform on stage too. She builds a friendship with a featured dancer, finds an enemy in a troubled, jealous performer, and gets affection from the bartender. With the help of a sharp-witted stage manager and gender-bending host, she 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 arrives with an enticing proposal.

Jason Anderson quote iconHistorians of the future will have angry debates over the exact point at which Burlesque reaches its full ripeness as a rare and delectable piece of movie cheese.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconIt could have been the 21st-century Showgirls. I wouldn't have missed that for the world.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconAt least Aguilera's singing makes up for some of the rest of the film's misgivings. If only her acting was on par, and the film hadn't jumped headfirst into a tub of clichés, then Burlesque might have been something more than eye candy.

Tomatometer quote iconCampy and clichéd, Burlesque wastes its talented cast (including a better-than-expected Christina Aguilera) on a movie that wavers uncertainly between ''bad'' and ''so bad it's good.''
