The first theatrical trailer has been released for the musical Burlesque, that features Christina Aguilera opposite some pretty heavy hitters. There’s Oscar winner Cher and Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci on the veteran side and Kristen Bell and Cam Gigandet on the newbie side. Are you ready to see what happens when you mix Showgirls with Dreamgirls, and a whole lot of overacting? Check out the trailer to Burlesque…
This film doesn’t look interesting to me at all. It’s the same format of a small town girl moving to the big city to make it in entertainment. Bell’s character is Aguilera’s competition in the film, Cher’s the tough as nails club owner, and Tucci is her right hand man. Gigandet appears to be a bartender who’ll also serve as her love interest, that is if Eric Dane’s character doesn’t get to her first.
This movie could be enticing if maybe, just maybe Aguilera didn’t do what she always does with that wonderful voice — go all over the place. Sitting in a theater watching her wail from left to right doesn’t sound appealing. Hit a note, hold it, and then maybe you’ll have something.
Burlesque hits theaters on November 24th, just in time for Thanksgiving.
