STARRING the OSSIFIED-LOOKING 64-YEAR-OLD CHER and PAST-HER-15-MINUTES POP TART CHRISTINA AGUILERA, BURLESQUE HOPED EVERYONE WOULD THINK OF IT as CHICAGO 2 -- BUT ITS PLOT IS LIFTED DIRECTLY from BOTH the ANCIENT HOLLYWOOD WARHORSE A STAR IZ BORN and the ALL-TIME RAZZIE CLASSIC SHOWGIRLZ (with a TOUCH of POLE-DANCING from I KNOW WHO KILLED ME THROWN IN for BAD MEASURE) -- IN OTHER WORDS, IT SURE LOOKED LIKELY to BE HOLLYWOOD's BIG HOLIDAY TURKEY for 2010 (WELL, AT LEAST UNTIL the CGI/3-D GULLIVER MOVIE CAME ALONG!). 

WE WERE HOPING IT WOULD NOT BE MERELY BAD, BUT BERRY...BERRY...BERRY BAD! 

TO BE HONEST, AS BAD AS IT WAS...IT WASN'T QUITE CLASSIC RAZZIE FODDER, THOUGH IT DID EARN CHER a WORST SUPPORTING ACTRESS NOMINATION...

FEEL FREE to ATTACK/DEFEND BURLESQUE BELOW...



THIS IMAGE IZ SO RE-TOUCHED IT COULD BE a 
DIZZ-KNEE ANIMATION CEL...

Am I the only one here who is slightly frightened by the fact that Cher hasn't aged in the past 30 years? Some might chalk it up to good plastic surgeons, but I wouldn't rule out vampirism just yet!

I'd say the odds of this movie failing are barely over 50/50. There's still a chance that this movie could get average or even positive reviews, so I'm not ready to sling mud yet.

I should warn you. You've probably heard early reviews praising Aguilera's performance. She could be good, but this is a musical, so it could be one of those "easy performances," like Beyonce's Golden Globe-nominated performance in DREAMGIRLS...and then came her Razzie-nominated performance in the non-musical OBSESSED

Rotten Tomatoes's Anticipatron called it 'Moulin Scrooge' saying that it looked like rejected bits of Christina's performance of 'Lady Marmalade'.

More like this film is the bastard/mutant love child of "Showgirls" and "Chicago"!

If this movie asked me, "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?" I would answer, "HELL NO!"

Meanwhile, the reviews I've come across were reasonably positive. If, on the night before Thanksgiving, the reviews are still positive, then we should probably drop this from the ballot, if only because there are many, much worse movies to tackle.
