DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Musical Romantic - This is a dance musical film aimed at female moviegoers. There is a bit of sexy dancing in lingerie and very skimpy clothing but minimal nudity. The suggestive dancing and some gay themes make the film of some caution to parents. Fans of Cher and Christina Aguilera will have plenty to savor here.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average "Burlesque” shows Cher and Christina Aguilera being all that they can be, and that's more than enough.

USA Today Full Review
Average You'd be hard-pressed to find two more distinct singing talents than Cher and Christina Aguilera. But their film, Burlesque, doesn't provide them much of a backup band.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
For Ali (Christina Aguilera), a small-town girl with a big voice, there had to be somewhere her dreams could be fulfilled, rather than remain an empty goal.

Enter the world of burlesque.

Leaving behind hardship and an uncertain future for the entertainment capital Los Angeles, Ali stumbles upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theater that is home to an inspired musical revue. Talking herself into a cocktail waitress job from Tess (Cher), the club's glamorous and forthright proprietor, headliner and starmaker, Ali becomes a wide-eyed sponge to The Burlesque's captivating acts. The outrageous costumes and bold choreography hold the young ingénue enraptured. That stage is where Ali was meant to be, so she vows to herself she'll be on it someday.

But first she has to navigate the theater's many interpersonal relationships, for better or for worse. She builds a friendship with a featured dancer (Julianne Hough), finds an enemy in a troubled, jealous performer (Kristen Bell), and wins the affection of Jack (Cam Gigandet), a handsome bartender and musician who takes Ali in as a temporary roommate to help her get her financial footing. Eventually, with the help of a sharp-witted yet sensitive stage manager (Stanley Tucci) and the club's gender-bending host (Alan Cumming), Ali makes her way from the bar to the stage. Her spectacular voice and showmanship returns The Burlesque Lounge to its former glory, giving hope to Tess that she won't have to entertain the demands of her ex-husband (Peter Gallagher) that she sell the place to a charismatic entrepreneur (Eric Dane) with an enticing proposal.

As Ali's star rises, it becomes thrillingly clear that the Burlesque Lounge lives to titillate, fascinate and make dreams come true. But are its days – and colorful, sexy, music-filled nights -- numbered?
