This weekend Maddy talked me into renting Burlesque 2010 featuring Cher and Cher and Christina Aguilera. I was hesitant as I thought it would be a corny movie with lots of drama etc. Which actually it was, but since I went in knowing that was the case the movie was okay to watch. I was surprised that Aguilera was able to do some sort of acting and she looked damn good in the movie. Cher looks damn good too, but that could be all of the plastic surgery she has had…not sure.
Definitely a movie that you don’t need to use your brain in, because you will know the story line, you will know the outcome, but the singing and dancing is fun to watch. Sort of reminded me of Chicago.
The history of burlesque shows as described in Wikipedia is interesting and makes me wish to see one someday.
