Alice (Christina Aguilera) looks around Iowa and “doesn’t see anyone’s life [she] wants” so she takes what she’s owed from her boss’ cash register and heads to LA where she quickly falls in love with life at The Burlesque Lounge. The show has seen better days and the boss (Cher) isn’t going to give her a job easily but what Ali want, Ali gets through sheer determination and talent. The film also star Eric Dane, Cam Gigandet, Stanley Tucci, Kristen Bell as the alcoholic falling star, and Alan Cumming. If you expect a new or stunning storyline, then this isn’t the film for you. If you want to watch Queens of Pop get their music on and fun, flirtatious burlesque numbers, then prepare for fun.
