Editorial reviews

3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] stunning, high-energy musical numbers....During the musical numbers, Aguilera and Cher are equally captivating..."
Box Office - Sara Vizcarrondo (11/24/2010)

"[BURLESQUE] is a safe place for Aguilera to show off her song and dance chops. And that she does, belting out bluesy songs left and right, many inspired by that smoldering torch queen Etta James..."
Los Angeles Times - Betsy Sharkey (11/24/2010)

"BURLESQUE delivers exactly what it promises, and then some: It's a glittering neon valentine to divadom..." -- Grade: B-
A.V. Club - Nathan Rabin (11/23/2010)

"The first hour or so of BURLESQUE is good enough to eat with a spoon. It's completely honest about its frothy, heavily sequined ambitions..."
Movieline - Stephanie Zacharek (11/24/2010)

3 stars out of 5 -- "BURLESQUE is an unashamed theatrical artifice proudly wearing its camp heart on its sequinned sleeve."
Total Film - Jane Crowther (12/12/2010)

3 stars out of 5 -- "The music and dance are thrilling and the costumes saucy enough to satisfy..."
Empire - Helen O'Hara (12/17/2010)

Cher Is Still A Vamp, Scamp, and A Tramp; However, it is Christina's Movie

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Created: 16/04/11
"Burlesque" is a movie that you will want to watch over and over especially to see the intricacy of the dancing. Yes, Cher still performs provocatively--especially in one of the early numbers. But it is Christina Aguilera's movie. She is in it from beginning to end as a down on her luck singer who comes to Los Angeles to change things. I thought that the movie would be set in the past when Burlesque was popular, but no, it is set right now. We see people talking on cell phones, living in fancy skyscrapers, and riding in 2011 cars.

Cher plays Tess, the owner of a night club named Burlesque, where the dancers dance in that genre but lip sync. The dance numbers are fantastic as you would expect. But when Ali (Christina Aguilera) shows up, she has to practically beg to be given a chance. Finally, Tess gives her that chance, and when one of the other dancers--Nicki (Kristen Bell)-- tries to sabotage her act, Ali really gets to shine by actually singing as well as dancing.

Now, while we males have plenty to watch in this movie, there are also hunks, elaborate clothes, and the dance moves themselves for the females. Cam Gigandet plays Jack from Kentucky, a love interest for Ali from Iowa, while Eric Dane plays Marcus, who wants to buy the struggling night club and steal Ali away.

Don't miss the special features, where all the dance numbers are performed in full as the movie itself only shows pieces. All of them are great, but especially Alan Cumming, who plays Tess's manager, shines in one called Berlin Jungle. Don't miss that one; it should be rated R!

Cher especially shines in one of the opening numbers called "Welcome to Burlesque. As you would expect, she is right at home in Burlesque and still has the figure and rhythm for it. However, she only has one more number in the movie called "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me," which won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song of 2011.

Christina Aguilera especially shines in "I Am A Good Girl" and "I Want a Guy Who Takes His Time," the latter of which she does a fan dance with feather fans while hiding her nudity.

The closest movie that I have ever seen to this movie was "Chicago," and it compares very favorably. "Chicago" won Best Picture of 2002, but this movie came up with not even an Oscar nomination. I would have given it at least some for its music and choreography and costumes.

You won't be sorry that you got this dvd.

Do you feel the desire? The excitement!

Created: 04/04/11
This movie is indeed a movie for the ages. It has everything a man could want. Beautiful half naked women. and everything a woman could want. beautiful outfits and lovely singing.

not to mention this movie has cher and christina agulera. Who are superb singers not given much credibility as they should have in this day and age. The movie captivates the minds and ensnares the senses. It makes you wish you could be there in the movie dancing and singing aswell.

The movie is about a small town girl moving to the big city. She wants to become a singer and dancer but unfortunately no place will hire her. That is until she goes into the club burlesque. A enticingly sexual place full of dressed desire beyond imagination. and with a few tricks up her sleeve (christina agulera) will be in the spot light. if she keeps her heart and her mind in the right place

West Coast COYOTE UGLY

Created: 10/04/11
If you've seen COYOTE UGLY, there won't be many surprises in this plot about a small-town girl who comes to the big city with big dreams. In both cases, the girl is hired by a tough-as-nails female bar owner with a soft heart, who doesn't believe the girl can be a star. But eventually she gets her big break, proves her talent, and saves the bar. That said, I loved COYOTE UGLY, and I love BURLESQUE. It's a variation on a theme --- Los Angeles instead of New York; retro-burlesque instead of country dancing. Cher looks just as beautiful and sings even better than she did forty years ago. Christina Aguilera, cast against her bad-girl reputation, plays the sweet ingenue to perfection. The singing and dancing are entertaining, and there is no nudity or stripping so I would judge this appropriate for teens as well as adults.

Good Movie

Created: 20/03/11
Great DVD, awsome condition. Tess, a retired dancer and owner of the venue, struggles to keep the aging theater alive, facing all kinds of financial and artistic challenges. With the Lounge's troupe members becoming increasingly distracted by personal problems and a threat coming from a wealthy businessman's quest to buy the spot from Tess, the good fortune seems to have abandoned the club altogether. Meanwhile, the life of Ali, a small-town girl from Iowa, is about to change dramatically.

Fantastic!

Created: 29/03/11
Burlesque is a very old style of dance that i feel doesn't receive enough respect. As a wife, i would much rather watch my husband enjoy watching a Burlesque dancer than any other style. Its classy, not trashy, and it takes a lot of skill to learn. The movies shows this! It showcases this style of dance in a wonderful way and brings it to a new generation. The story line is a bit (done before), but its done before because its a good story. The coming of age and finding your place story line has added pizazz thanks to Cher and Christina's wonderful acting ,and as always classic good looks. If the story line doesn't appeal to you then im sure the sparkles and dancing will. Love this movie!
