Burlesque

The Cher of Mask probably never thought she?d let herself be called a ?Legend? on a poster; and I imagine Christian Aguilera, from the Mickey Mouse club and so many other facets of the entertainment industry, could hardly see herself as a newbie anymore. But make-up can work wonders on crow?s feet (please note my abstinence mentioning plastic surgery) and really, who better to compete against each other in the femme-underwear-belt-a-thon than these two?

Aguilera, a hayseed from a trailer park, goes to LA to follow a dream and gets lots of cold shoulder from Cher, the matron of the Burlesque who, though married to the director, has likely never had a thing handed to her. When it?s revealed the girl has unbelievable lungs, Cher puts her on and the hayseed cocktail waitress makes her way in with song. There?s romance, drama and eyeliner (on men and women) a plenty. Also hats. Lots of hats.
