BURLESQUE – IN THEATRES NOVEMBER 24TH!!!


Its going to be exciting to watch these two powerhouse women act together in this Movie Musical. Burlesque opens around the world in theatres Wednesday Novemver 24th.

It was a risky bet by this first-time feature director, Steve Antin’s to cast songstress Christina Aguilera, a singer who had never acted in a film. The stroke of genius here is to pair her with pop-music icon Cher. Although Aguilera is in nearly every scene and Cher appears irregularly, they nicely balance each other as they play single-minded characters passionate about their work as cabaret performers. One is at wits’ end about a possibly dying art and the other too fresh and enthused to notice. One singer-actress is an old pro and the other a superb entertainer exploring a new avenue for her talent. (Note to Cher: In this instance, “old” is a good thing and a compliment. You still look fabulous.)

Women will love this, and men won’t mind the eye candy either, so it seems this Screen Gems release can’t help becoming a hit. News stories about conflicts on the set and reshoots will only fuel the curiosity factor. Besides, burlesque itself — a stage-show tradition dating to late-19th century British music halls — with its risqué humor and ample flesh (without full exposure), is making a comeback. Burlesque should seal the deal.
