Summary: Ali Rose, small town girl and waitress, has big dreams of singing stardom. These bring her to Burlesque, a nightclub that features, you guessed it, Burlesque-style entertainment. Young Ali is enchanted by the performances she witnesses and begins her quest to be a part of the act.
Appeal: Though the plot is somewhat predictable, it does feature Christina Aguilera, whose performance is impressive. Other notable cast members include Cher, Stanley Tucci, Eric Dane, and Dancing with the Stars former pro Julienne Hough. If you are looking for a deep, thought-provoking story, this movie is not for you.
For the most part, Burlesque provides the fun, lively, and talent-packed entertainment it promises.
Three words that best describe this film: Steamy, Campy, Upbeat
