The Burlesque Lounge has its best days behind it. Tess, a retired dancer and owner of the venue, struggles to keep the aging theater alive, facing all kinds of financial and artistic challenges. With the Lounge's troupe members becoming increasingly distracted by personal problems and a threat coming from a wealthy businessman's quest to buy the spot from Tess, the good fortune seems to have abandoned the club altogether. Meanwhile, the life of Ali, a small-town girl from Iowa, is about to change dramatically. Hired by Tess as a waitress at the Lounge, Ali escapes a hollow past and quickly falls in love with the art of burlesque. Backed by newfound friends amongst the theater's crew, she manages to fulfill her dreams of being on stage herself. Things take a dramatic turn though when Ali's big voice makes her become the main attraction of the revue.Written by
OK is impossible not to compare this film to Chicago or Nine. Nearly as good as Chicago in my opinion, way better than the disappointing Nine Not an epic musical but the music is great for 'burlesque' mood Christina is way better than expected. actually all of the cast did great some good dialogues although the plot is very predictable overall. it was though difficult to understand the time (decade) the film is set. i am fan of such films therefore the 8. if i didn't like musicals the rating would be lower i suppose. great musical performances by Christina and Cher choreography is good loved the scene with the cookies ( you will see - no spoilers!)
