Burlesque: My Movie Review

I would have to give it 5 stars for the entertainment.  

I have a new love for Christina Aguilera.  She was incredible in this movie.  Absolutely gorgeous & her voice (per usual) gives me goosebumps.  Other faves:  Cher (yeah, she was good!), Julianne Hough, Kristen Bell, and  Dianna Agron (aka Quinn from Glee - she makes a very tiny appearance).

So much singing and dancing, but it isn't really a musical. It is action packed and I love the old fashioned theme in the costumes.  The story line is cute, too.  It's just my type of movie.

I went with a few girlfriends and they were the perfect company.  Everyone liked it and after we were discussing how beautiful the cast was and even my friend, Jessica, who doesn't like musicals, liked it.  Definitely the perfect "girls night" movie!

I haven't seen it, and I'm generally not a movie person, but I've heard many similar reviews (everyone loves it!) so I might have to give it a shot! Christina Aguilera really does have a powerhouse voice--it's kinda unreal.

I hadn't seen it yet, but I've been meaning too! I LOVE Christina and have forever, and I'm glad that you didn't pick apart her acting or anything :) Plus, I love, love, love Kristen Bell and Stanley Tucci!
So glad you had a great time, Tracy! xo

It's nice to hear that your friend who didn't like musicals, like Burlesque! I too am not a fan of musicals, so I wasn't planning on seeing the movie...but I do love Christina Aguilera so now I may just have to have a girl's night at the movies! Thanks for your SF recommendations too Tracy! I'm so excited to try them out this week when we're there!

Ok, I'll go. I may have to go alone though because I don't know of anyone who would go with me and I'm pretty sure the big guy would laugh if I asked him to go.

Great movie, really lots of fun. Aguilera is electrifying, she's got so much talent and her voice is awesome. Loved the songs and the customs, of course Thanks for the review! :)

I have to admit I wasn't to thrilled at the onset of viewing the movie. Christina's vocal performance, however won me over. It inspired me to watch other movies. I received an email from where I work at DISH Network. To celebrate Independence Day, DISH Cinema is offering 5 hit movies for only 99¢ cents! The list includes Sucker Punch, Tru Grit, and Just Go With It. Order by remote, customer service,or online through July 7th. http://bit.ly/ivUveB Sounds like lemonade, popcorn, movies, and air conditioning for the day!
