I think I have read four reviews for Burlesque. In at least three of those reviews someone has cracked the line that it is Showgirls without the nudity. Considering that was the only reason to watch Showgirls this does not bode well for Burlesque. My favorite review so far has been Marshall Fine's review in which he said, “There’s nary a surprise to be had, except for Aguilera’s apparent misconception that she has acting talent.”
Another review said something like Christina has actually become a worse actress than she was on The Mickey Mouse Club. Wow, that is harsh and probably deserved. I have yet to find a good review for this movie. I have been waiting to see the reviews to see if it could somehow resurrect Christina's career but it looks like this will just firmly set up her place as the headliner with Jessica Simpson on a tour featuring Debbie Gibson and Tiffany as the opening acts. I think they will call it the, “I Used To Be Kind Of A Big Deal” tour.
As for Cher and her acting, Fine says, “Cher, who looks like her face last had working musculature circa 1990, plays the one-time star and club owner.”
Has anyone seen a good review yet?
