Roger Ebert Burlesque shows Cher and Christina Aguilera being all that they can be, and that's more than enough.
Jason Anderson Historians 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.
Peter Travers It could have been the 21st-century Showgirls. I wouldn't have missed that for the world.
C. Fuchs At 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 Campy 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.''
