Is Burlesque a potential Oscar nominee or a train wreck waiting to happen? Steve Antin is making his feature directorial debut on the film, which he co-wrote with Oscar-nominated screenwriter Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich) and Keith Merryman. It stars an Oscar winner in Cher (Moonstruck), Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci and Grammy Award winner Christina Aguilera as the film's lead character Ali. With a November 24 release date Columbia Pictures is obviously thinking late year awards, if at the very least a Golden Globe (Musical/Comedy) nomination, but we'll just have to wait and see. One would think this film would be prime for original song, art direction, costume and makeup nominations and perhaps editing.

"My Review and Thoughts:
CHRISTINA: Her acting was sensational. That's not coming from a biased opinion I honestly thought she did a great job since it is her first time acting next to veterans like Cher, Stanley Tucci, Eric Dane, Kristen Bell, Cam Gigandet, and others. Her character was sweet, funny, and extremely vocal/persistant! When you guys see the movie you will know what I'm talking about. If I had to give her a score from 1 to 10 for her acting I would unbiasedly give her a 8.5 or 9.
MOVIE: Burlesque was great. It was slow at times but then again it wasn't the official movie that was going to be released. They were still in the editing process so what we saw was the cut before the actual movie was released. I think the movie deserved an 8.5 out of 10. The dancing and vocals were killer. They made the movie so much fun. If I had to choose a couple of words to describe the movie to you guys I would choose... FUN, SEXY, and ENTERTAINING. It made me want to get up off of my seat and shake my tail feather. Oh and there is some sexy time between A & J.
OTHERS: The rest of the characters made the movie great too! I would like to call Kristen Bell's character a total BITCH! Julianne Hough was a complete sweet heart. Cher was like a mother figure, and well Cam Gigandet, was well the eye candy for most of the attendees, "BUTT" (wink wink wink) the rest of the men held there own and were a bit comedic too... The entire cast was just really fun. FUN FUN FUN!"
