First Look: “Burlesque” Is “Showgirls” Meets “Glitter”

Amelia McDonell-Parry / August 5, 2010


I hate to prejudge, but hell, whatever, I am going to. “Burlesque” is Christina Aguilera’s feature film debut in a dramatic role and the first trailer is out. Co-starring Cher, the film tells the story of a “small-town girl” who “ventures to Los Angeles and finds her place in a neo-burlesque club run by a former dancer.” So, can Xtina act? Decide for yourself.
