Very juvenile script , poorly acted - overacted - and Cher should frighten anyone off the botox / facelift current inthing - swollen lips and a horse face - not pretty
What a phantasmic show!!!! The atmosphere in this cabaret is electric. The singing and dancing and choreography exceptional. One of the most entertaining movie I have seen in a long time.
A musical has to be really good for me to like it a lot. Say like Grease. Christina is amazing and actually can act but she just doesn't do it for me. Cher- awesome. The storyline was trite. Ok but wouldn't watch it again.
So, who punched Cher in the lips to make them swell so much ? Other than that, this was a good watch, and wow, Christina's voice is on fire. A developer threatens to take an old struggling Burlesque club off it's owners hands but Alice comes along to try to help save it.
I really enjoyed this one, great music on the whole and very entertaining.
Better than I expected, very predictable though
I didn't mind this movie. The story line wasn't too bad. Loved the dancing and the singing but I agree with LP - I couldn't watch it for a second time!
Really enjoyed the singing, dancing. Good movie.
Bit of a cher tele movie really - no real plot / story line - music was good but couldn't watch it a second time thats for sure
I like Christina Aguleira. Yummy if you like that sort of thing.
Not the best actors
not the best writers
couldnt watch to the end
I expected more from the ending but I loved this movie. Although Cher is almost plastic, she still has an incredible voice.
Great entertainment. Loved the singing, dancing and costumes. Lots of fun and enjoyment.
Not really the best movie we have seen, however we seen it through till the end.
For serious Christina Aguilera and burlesque fans. Excellent dancing, zero story.
Let's face facts, you would only watch this movie for the music and the dancing, not the story. And from that point of view it delivers. Having said that, I didn't mind the story, it 's just cliched and been done before, but how many original movies are there?
Cher looked a little plastic but good music and dancing. Story a bit tired !!!
Cher, Christina Aguilera and Burlesque. A winning combination. Songs are excellent and so is the choreography.
The young country girl who wanted to be a singer is excellent and worth listening to as to Cher just average
On the surface, this rags to riches tale has it all - the lavish production values, the big song numbers, eye-popping costumes (and that's just in Cher's dressing room). All the megawatt star power in the Universe can't save this flick. Christina Aguilera isn't exactly Meryl Streep (and I'm being kind) and Cher well, Cher is Cher - lipglossed to within an inch of her life and trying desperately to salvage her Moonstruck glory. But the story? Well - it had potential - but the predictability grates, the dialogue will make you laugh when it's not meant to and the male lead wasn't worthy of his close-ups - sorry. Burlesque didn't cut it for me.
WOW what a feel good movie with great singing and dancing. Not really into chick flicks but this was a good all round entertainment.
Loved the music. The acting was average, but the music was great!
Loved the movie, if you like Moulin Rouge then this is as good..
Love listening to Christina and Cher and nice outfits too
Awesome, loved it. Christina Aquilera was is brilliant in this
The story line was very predictable but also predicted that would happen! However the dancing but mostly Christinas singing was spine tingling and that forgave the story line. Loved it.
Wow, this movie is a surprise, it certainly helped not knowing too much about Christina going into it. It sure gave me a new found respect for her voice... Would have liked to see more of Cher singing though... still great movie.
Absolutely loved this film. Highly recommended.
Music was great, quite enjoyable to watch.
Got to 45 minutes, turned it off. Really bad acting, and average musical numbers. Cliche laden rubbish. Groan meter...10.
One of the best dance movies ever! A lovely romance film set amongst great singing and dancing routines. Aguillera acts well, and you quickly love her sweet talented character. I loved it so much I had to watch it twice!!
Loved the music, singing fantastic, story line very Coyote Ugly. Not as good as I thought it would be.
Not bad more about Christina Aguilera than Cher - reasonable story line
Loved it to begin with, but after a bit it was a bit too much of the same thing. Scantily clad girls doing sexy dances. Fun to watch all the same and had a happy ending. Maybe a bit long.
Predictable but worth watching for the hot chocks and music-including Cher and Christina Aguilera
Great film. Cher is a standout, and Aguilera shows her acting skills are as good as her singing.
Great Music, dancing. The daughters loved it , the boys Naa!!
A fun movie with some great music
Beautiful girls, slow, easily anticipate next move.
The plot was kind of extraneous, I fast-forwarded most of it after about the first half. However Christina's voice is just amazing and the song and dance routines were pretty spectacular, so I'd say it's worth a watch for that.
WOW!!!!!!! Cher and
Christina were wonderful, this movie is just so much fun.
Christina showed that what you see on the screen/stage is nothing like the personality off the screen/stage.
Really enjoyed this film.ThanksRB
Not as bad as I had been told. Christinia certainly has a voice.
Absolute drivel. Sonny & Cher meets Pop Idol but with even less substance. The lame attempt to attach a storyline to this Cher & Christina showcase is an affront to all viewers. Hollywood self indulgent showboating at its deplorable best.
Loved this movie. Great singing and dancing.
An enjoyable movie - wonderful music by Cher!
Typical from zero to hero sort of story but still entertaining with dance, singing and the normal drama queen story line.
fantastic its a great movie and especially the singing
I really liked this. Although it was predictable, the music was fantastic and the burlesque scenes were amazing. It was very well cast and thoroughly enjoyable.
A very enjoyable movie, easy to watch could recommend to anyone wanting a movie with great entertainment value
Loved it , loved it loved it
I ws transfixed the whole movie Aguilera was amazing, and despite her age Cher still got it!
A good movie. Singing and dancing was great
Brilliant! Loads of amazing costumes, brilliant music and all round good entertainment. Definitely recommended.
Terrific chick flick. Lots of terrific singing and dancing.
Very good singing & dancing Cher beautiful and has still got a fabulous voice . Christina what pipes ! I enjoyed the movie though predictable .
Would not allow me to view - circle with red line thru it??????
it was ok dont know if i would watch again
Very entertaining. Chrisina has such a great voice and prescence on the stage. Cliched story but that was expected.
What was with that young man's (love interest) eyebrows??!! Did they let the apprentice beautician wax them?
The out takes were very wierd ....lots of Christina fluffing stuff and giggling, with the other actors just sitting there, staring at her. Must have happened a lot :S
If the outtakes aren't going to be funny don't put them in! These were just embarrassing.
Really enjoyed the music and choregraphy. Cher has lost none of her class. Watched it twice.
Started off full of promise then declined into a bit of a dead end. Christina has a great voice but not enough to carry the film. Cher was playing herself!
Loved it! Familiar story told in fabulous way!
Loved this movie. Fantastic singing.
Great movie. Up there with "Chicago".
I always like Cher and I thought it was enjoyable, a good way to spend the afternoon.
Fantastic movie - bought the music after seeing the movie.
Not bad movie. Great singing; Cher & Aguilera
Never saw it sorry! not the musical type should never have chosen it
always loved cher & christina as performers, the movie was a bit more of a video clip , not much of a story line , typically, girl leaves dead end job & life moves to the big city looking for fame & a better life, encounters obstacles along the way to her success, worth a look .
Another fantastic movie. Really loved this. Not a lot of conflict and things go very smoothly for christina but it is a fun movie with lots of music and dance and hot girls. What more do you want?
Great singing and music, as you'd expect. Not a bad story line overall and surprisingly sticks in your mind. I would buy this one to watch again for a bit of light entertainment.
amazing, fantastic, wonderful! I love this movie!
loved this movie cher is great so is christina seen it three times would recommend this movie
I enjoyed this movie more than I first first. Loved the dancing, cining and music they are very talented.
Loved the singing and dancing. Costumes were great too. Quite a spectacle.
I didnt expect this movie to be so good, I absolutely love it, brilliant, my husband really enjoyed it to, easy to watch
I loved Burlesque - Christina has the most fabulous voice and everybody certainly can dance. High energy. Great actors.
If you like Coyote Ugly, then this is a newer version of it. Not as good as I thought but very enjoyable.
Not my cup of tea--switched it off a half an hour.
Fabulous very entertaining
Loved the burlesque performances and Christina and Cher's singing but the actual movie was a bit slow and the romantic comedy side of things was too cliche and unexciting.
Loved this - singing and dancing amazing. Definately a movie I could watch again.
Enjoyed the music. Not a bad storyline.
Brilliant and entertaining movie.
I loved this movie and if I was able to give it a rating with more stars - I would.
Probably the best film I have watched for the first time this year.
Great movie, loved the singing and dancing ...thoroughly enjoyed it>
Enjoyed costumes, lighting. Loved Alan Cumming.
A great movie. Cher was terrific as usual and I hadnt realised what a fantastic voice Christina Aguilera has. I loved it!
Excellent comedy, musical - not a fan of Cher but she gave an exccellent performance as did Christina Aquillina.
A combination of Chicago, Moulin Rouge and Coyote Ugly. Music, dancing and costumes like Chicago and Moulin Rouge but the predictable and uneventful storyline of Coyote Ugly. They even have the same “my money got stolen from my predictable hiding spot” scene. Christina has an awesome voice and I love Cher, even when she does subpar movies. Watch it if you like musicals, sparkly costumes and dancing, but don’t expect much.
loved it! my new favourite movie
Was surprised by this one- I hadn't expected Christina A to do such a good job!! And Cher was great too and I always love Stanley Tucci!! I loved the dancing and CAs voice was as strong as ever. Was predictable but I enjoyed it anyway!!
Great movie, lots of fun.
LOVED this one...unlike "Showgirls" , this movie had an AWESOME soundtrack and engaging storyline... Love Christina and Cher!!
I can see why it was in the running for worst movie of 2010... I found it boring, predictable and badly acted! (Pls don't judge my bad grammar)
Cher was a star, as only she can be, and her tunes made the movie bearable.. otherwise give this a big miss!
Burlesque is a great movie ! Me and My family loved it , well the girls did of course. I found it really entertaining.
Great movie. Good cast, good acting, great music.
thoroughly enjoyed it
once finished, started it again !!!
I LOVED this movie, but i love this genre. The dancing sequences are great, costumes better.... for what it was the storyline was a tad weak and predidctable, but nonetheless i found it a captivating movie. It made me laugh AND cry and i thought CA did an awesome job! PLUS, CAM G is a pleasure to watch! It really made me want to get up and dance burlesque! hehe. loved it immensley!
Songs, costumes and singing was all amazing. The contrast between the characters and the multiple story lines was a brilliant touch to a story that already had so much to offer.
Singing was good, story line was a bit boring
Love love love this movie. Watched it 5 times!
A*M*A*Z*I*N*G!!! I looooved this movie.. could watch it over and over again!!!
Wow what a fun move, I really enjoyed it. the cast was great the story great, and Cher just was fantastic, so was Christine Aguilera, great entertaining movie
Good - but the songs are a bit of a let down, still a good movie
really liked this movie but thats because it was full of singing and dancing which i love xtina has a great voice
Wow! Christine Aguilera can act as surely as she can belt out those notes! Love
Stanley Tucci's character who pulls this together. Shame Cher is so nipped &
tucked it's a distraction, but she still can sing! Loved this musical & would watch
I LOVE musicals and did enjoy this but it was frustrating and had a ridiculously predictable storyline. Could have been SO much better. Definately if you're a die hard musical fan or a Christina/Cher fan. Boys, don't bother.
Most enjoyable movie I have watched for a long time.
excellant film,2 great diva's in Cher and Christine and what voices both of them
have. worth a watch
I enjoyed it but would definitely say it was more of a "one-for-the-girls" kind of movie unless you are really into singing and dancing. Does follow your typical trying to make it plot that is so common with these movies but on a different stage. Great performances by Christina and Cher.
i love the song in this movie
What a brilliant movie, I'm referring to the singing and dancing but the script wasn't bad.
Loved it! Christine Aguilera has an amazing voice. Cher hasn't lost it either. Great movie.
Enjoyed this movie very much - loved the music and Christina was fantastic.
Music is awesome, Aguilera and Cher played their parts well... very enjoyable
Loved it.....little bit the same story line as Coyote Ugly, but Cher shows that she's still got what it takes....no matter how tight her face is.
Great show, wonderful music, deserves better than the 2.5 stars awarded here.
Great movie. Not a brilliant storyline but the music was fantastic.
Thoroughly enjoyable movie. Watched it twice and guests enjoyed it as much as I did. Cher was believable in her role and I was blown away by the strength of Christina's voice - amazing! Story line was smple and basic but music made up for lack of depth in plot.
So-so. Fairly predictable. Why are all female bar owners, madams and owners of burlesque houses called Tess!!!!!
About as much plot as a porn film. Costumes were good, actors were attractive, some of the songs were just Cher airtime.
I was not expecting to enjoy watching this movie - someone else
in household chose this one .....
but was surprised that Christina Aguilera has such talent to act,
sing and dance. it was a change from other movies.
It was not the greatest movie i ever watched, but i would
say an enjoyable one - burlesque dancing is certainly an art.
what an amazing ride through another world
very average and storyline reminiscent of coyote ugly
self indulgent twaddle
next time just say no
cher has passed her prime by far,
a decade ago
A great nights entertainment. Cher and Christina Aguieliera are amazing, and very talented, which they get to show to the full in this movie. Highly recommended - we all enjoyed.
Loved this movie, watched it many times before sending back. Puts Moulin Rouge to shame. Christina's acting and the storyline was a bit cheesy in places but the costumes, the singing and the girls make it a worthwhile movie to watch.
I liked it. I missed it at the movies and after hearing from nearly everyone I know how great it was I decided to watch it for myself. Christina Aguilera is actually an OK actress, it flows quickly and the song/dance routines are catchy and glitzy. I was a little distracted by Cher's lips, but she was good too. A fun musical, if you like that type of thing.
Great, feel good movie, good music, great costumes, nice things happen even to the nasty characters - good entertainment on a wet, cold afternoon!
Not a great story line but the music and entertainment certainly made this movie. If you like Coyote Ugly, then you will love this. I really enjoyed it.
Storyline was a little bit slow, but quite a nice movie for a chilled Sunday arvo. Overall, it was a very entertaining film with the musical performances and outfits. Christina Aquilera's voice is amazing as is Cher's and was really enjoyable to watch them perform.
Loved this movie but if you are looking for something deep this is not for you, if you are looking for something like Moulin Rouge singing and dancing and to just sit back and be entertained without having to think too much, this is for you. It is an explosion of colour, light effects and music.
Yes...stunning costumes, dance sequences, and sets. Yes... Cher is wonderful as always but SO let down by a mediocre script and character part; but holds her own with elegance,wit and dignity. Yes... Christina's talent is awesome and worth every minute she explodes on stage. But c'mon guys ! This was really just one more BIG video clip for Miss Aguilera. And I could have gone to YouTube for that ! What a shame, because this could have been so much better with a little ORIGINALITY. I feel so sorry for all the other talent in the film that missed out on a decent fair "show".
Very much a Cyote Ugly film cross Moulin Rouge, bit of a chick flick musical, but perfect Sunday afternoon film.
THE SINGING AND DANCING IN THE MOVIE IS EXCELLENT AND WORTH WATCHING MULTIPLE TIMES BUT THE STORY LINE IS A BIT SLOW WITHOUT VERY MUCH DEPTH.
Great dancing, ok songs, lame story but watch it for the glitz and glamour on a 'no brain required' night.
Great movie, absolutely loved it. Christinas voice gives me goosebumps everytime I hear her sing. Quite spectacular.
Between this one and Dear John, I fear I am losing all of my masculinity. This is one for the girls. Costumes are fabulous and Stanley Tucci is ok, but it's just a vehicle for Cher and Christina to warble and trill away. Predictable as hell, and if you don't know the ending within half an hour, you're not paying attention!
the story is a little silly - boring - but the musicals are FANTASTIC!!!
Loved this movie Christina has such an amazing voice, the dance scenes were really great.
enjoyed the music,cool girly flick
I thouroughly enjoyed watching this movie. would defintely watch it again, maybe even buy it.
Good, but not amazing. Would have been better on the big screen. Good if you want to see some great dancing.
The movie is not that bad, just be prepared for some bad acting from Xtina and even Cher... it's a real popcorn movie
Not as cheesy as i was expecting it to be. Its like a 200% better version of coyote ugly. Christina can act!
Everything you need in a musical. Good dancing, great singing, and amazing costumes!
Predictable storyline but great singing and dancing.
Absolutely brilliant, a magical mix of old music hall and modern music. Cher as always is at her dignified if withdrawn best, her voice is wonderful, I wasn't a fan of Christina Aguilera but the part she played was fantastic and loaded with talent. If you like musicals old or new this will be a great movie and you will enjoy every minute, intend to buy it so we can watch it agin
loved it was well done and entertaining.
Interesting genre - the acting was woeful (obviously the director could get very little out of Cher) and the script and story line ordinary and predictable in that order. The dancing was very pop-diva and the cinematography could have been a lot better - too many close ups of the dancing which, whilst not that good, could have been given the benefit of the doubt. However, the singing was world class but there were shades of All That Jazz, 42nd Street and Cabaret in the dancing - they say that copying something is the highest form of flattery.
A fantastic movie even if it was a bit risque at times well worth it
Omg got it today and watched it straight away and can't wait to watch it again... I LOVE it.... fabulous chick flick... Well worth the wait for it to come out on DVD..
LOVED IT!!!! Great chick flick. Cher and Christina were brilliant. I saw this movie in the theatre, a couple of times, it was that great.
I saw this at the movies yesterday and LOVED IT!! It may not appeal to everyone and some may say it's predictable, but I adored the razzle-dazzle, the music, the costumes, the amazing dancers, the iconic Cher and spunky Stanley Tucci (both excellent), the extremely handsome young actor Cam Gigandet as Christina's love interest, AND the totally amazing Christina Aguilera and THAT VOICE. She can act, dance and boy, can she sing, her voice is phenomenal. I wanted to applaud at the end!
Pretty good. Colourful. Great chereo. Bit boring with Christina always singing/shouting. Cher's solo was SOOOOOOOOOOOO predictable and such a time filler. Good to kill a couple hours.
