I really enjoyed Burlesque at the movies despite an awful headache. We rented it tonight (Red Box) and we're not returning it. (After X days, Red Box just charges you for it.)
It's such a great movie.
This time, maybe it was knowing what was coming but I know it was not having a headache, I was in tears throughout. Cedric was looking at me like, "Are you okay?"
Christina can sing, obviously, and that was true before the film but she really gave a performance. And who can top Cher?
And my favorite scenes are the ones with Christina and Cher. They're usually brief and not heavy handed. And they do them so well.
I just love this movie.
I'm not a Peter Gallagher fan at all but I thought even he was good in the movie.
If you missed Burlesque at the movies or, if like me, you saw it and liked it, go rent it, I think you'll love it. In December when Stan and I do our 'best of DVDs,' this is going to be one of my top picks.
