A fun feel-good musical with powerful singers.
Verified purchase
I love this silly movie. Oh, it's fluff and formula, the romance is sappy and predictable, the save at the end was anticipated in that this movie simply couldn't end any other way. Despite that, I still love it. Why? Well the costumes, the choreography, the music and most of all, two powerful voices, Chistina's and Cher's. The movie is worth watching just to hear Christina Aquilar sing Tough Love. So, yeah, I give it 5 out 5.

Not every movie has to be powerful or meaningful. A movie and and sometimes should be just a great romp in the park. This one is.

forced ads
Verified purchase
Picture is great, sound is great and really fun video. But, they made it where you are forced to sit through a bunch of ads before you can see anything. I'm not talking about a minute or two but one after another of full length ads and the menu is disabled. After about 30 minutes of this stupidity I can finally watch the video that I paid for. Pop the disc out to look at something else and you want to go back, you start all over again. would have given it 5 stars otherwise.

WOW! I thought movie would put me to sleep.

First, this is not Sound of Music, but what is. The story line is predictable, The characters are a little flimsy. You know, good girl, bad girl, a man who is confused, a woman trying to save her dream. But this movie shows how it should be done. Music is great, dancing even better. Plot? Who cares. This movie can brighten every day.

jack is a pervert or the actor who plays jack is....haha
Verified purchase
not bad a film, the music was great, the burlesque routines were amazing, i personally did not care for the story i found it kind of weak. we found the character played by Kristen bell to be overwhelmingly dissatisfying and the character jack was annoying, i don't know if it was written that he leer at Christina Aguileras breasts in nearly every scene or if that was just something actor cam gigandet couldnt stop doing, but it becomes hilariously noticeable throughout the film. but literally in every scene that was not a close up shot he would leer at her breasts any chance he could. i kid you not. we ended up making a game out of it towards the end and started counting how many times he would look down in a scene which took away from the movie but was entertaining in itself. lol

MUSIC AND CAST GREAT!!
Verified purchase
IF THERE WAS MORE THAN A 5 , I WOULD GIVE IT,
BETWEEN ALL THE GREAT CAST OF ACTORS AND ACTRESSES AND THE GREAT MUSIC
THIS MOVIE IS SO WORTH THE WATCH AND LISTEN BOTH
THE STORY STARTS IN A LITTLE TOWN OF IOWA IN A LITTLE DINER
WHERE ALI(CHRISTIAN AGUILAR) IS THE WAITRESS ANS HER BOSS IS BEHIND ON PAYING HIS HELP
SHE DECIDES SHE WANTS SOMETHING BETTER FOR HERSELF, SHE TAKES THE MONEY THATS OWNED TO HER ONLY
AND BUYS A TICKETT TO L.A, WHERE SHE STARTS LOOKING FOR A JOB,
NOT JUST ANY JOB , HER DREAM, SINGING, ACTING, SHE RUNS THROUGH LOTS OF ADS
AND ONE DAY AS SHE US WALKING IN L.A, SHE SEES THE BUILDING WITH PICTURES OF SINGERS
AND ITS CALLED BURLESQUE, SO SHE GOES IN ASK TO TALK THE MANGER HIRING
THE PERSON IS THE OWNER (CHER) AND SHE HAS NO TIME FOR HER NOR IS SHE HIRING RIGHT NOW
AND SHE HAS TIME TO LISTEN, SO ALI WATCHES THE SHOW AND DURING IT SHE DECIDES
THIS IS WHERE SHE WANTS TO BE, SINGING, DANCING WHATEVER IT TAKES
SO AS THE SHOW GOES ON , SHE DECIDES TO MAKE HER SELF THE WAITRESS AND S HE DOS THAT
AND CHER LISTENS AND TELLS HER LEARN THE PARTS AND WE WILL SEE LATER
THAT LATER NEVER CAME AND CHER NEVER WANTED TO LISTEN.
WATCH THE SHOW ANS LISTEN TO THE MUSIC AND SEE HOW ALI GETS HER SHOOT
ITS NOT THE NORMAL WAY, SO BE EXPECTING A SURPRISE,
THERE ARE LOTS OF POPULAR STARS IN THE MOVIE , ITS A LONG WAYS FROM BEING BORING
IF, I DID NOT KNOW BETTER, I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT, THIS WAS A RAGS TO RICHES SHOW, BUT , THAT'S ONLY PART OF IT, CHER COULD LOOSE THE PLACE AND THERE IS ALWAYS THE BAD GUY, THAT WANTS TO RUIN
SOMEONE HOPES AND DREAMS, YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY!!

Cabaret meets Chicago on Broadway?
Verified purchase
Did the writers of this monstrosity even know what burlesque was? A burlesque show included a variety of acts (comics, singers) held together by strip acts. In this film, a burlesque show was portrayed as a series of dance numbers performed by beautiful young dancers of Broadway caliber. The choreography (and the club decoration) was shamelessly taken from the Bob Fosse musicals. Save your time. Watch Cabaret (1972) and Chicago (2002).

Like a Decadent Dessert for the Eyes and Ears
Verified purchase
While I'm not necessarily a huge fan of Christina Aguilera, I am (like most of the population) in awe of her powerful voice. While I'm not necessarily a huge fan of Cher's voice, I love her outspokenly feisty personality. And as a side note, I pretty much adore everything about Stanley Tucci. So I went into this movie expecting something ... interesting, if not necessarily good.

What an awesome surprise to find that Burlesque is a solidly entertaining movie from start to finish. It's like a decadent dessert for the eyes and ears. The sets are lavish, the costumes are gorgeous, the actors (male and female) are beautiful, the choreography is stunning, and the musical numbers are spectacular. There's wry humor sprinkled throughout, it's possible to feel empathy for most of the characters, and all the sparkly song-and-dance is held together by at least the semblance of a plot. On the downside, prepare yourself for some cartoonish characterizations and clunky dialog ... but then again, this is a pretty fantastical production (think "Moulin Rouge") so it would be unrealistic to expect hard-hitting drama and character nuance. All in all, this movie entertained my socks off. It's like going to a Cirque de Soleil show -- fun, dreamy, color-saturated, full of rhythm and melody, totally immersive. Not a bad way to spend a couple of hours.

Gushing and Wishing for Remake
Verified purchase
So many great parts in this movie: story line, talent, singing, actors, sas, friendship, humor [quick and witty]; one pinnacle moment after the next, songs; costumes; setting. A couple of the script lines are head-scratching, but forgiveable. I love love this movie. Love Cher. Love Christina. Love Stanley, Love Kristen, Love Cam and Eric too. Execellent cast. I wish they would do a remake where Ali takes over ownership, but has some sort of issue. Stanley would have to be there. Heck! They would all have to be in it. I'm gushing. I'll stop. Many Thx, Diane
