I laughed when I heard they where making a ‘Burlesque‘ movie and laughed even more when I saw the cast, but here we are, the first trailer for Pussycat Dolls video director/actor Steve Antin movie.The movie stars Christina Aguilera in screen debut and she is joined Cher, Stanley Stucci, Cam Gigandet, Kristen Bell, Alan Cumming, Julianne Hough and Peter Gallagher and the movie hits our screens on December 17th (November 24th USA).
The movie sees Ali (Aguirela) a small time girl who heads to Los Angeles to follow her dreams and stumbles on a burlesque club. She gets hired by Tess(Cher) as a cocktail waitress in this club that looks like a majestic music venue, outrageous costumes and bold choreography enrapture inspire Ali’s dreams to perform here one day.
The movie has been described a contemporary version of Moulin Rouge meets cabaret, musicals are not my cup of tea but Ive noticed a few site saying that cher and Aguirela as Oscar contenders then theres the other sites who just think this is one big peice of trash., i’ll keep my opinons to myself until I see more.
If you wonder when I mentioned Christina is ‘right dirty’ it is reference to Bo Selecta the once popular comedy show from Channel 4, just youtube it if you have no clue what Im on about.
