Can you imagine the pitch meeting for the new movie Burlesque? "Hey guys, it's Showgirls meets Glitter meets Coyote Ugly but BETTER!!" Yes, this is the latest Christina Aguilera vehicle, and I hesitate to call anything with her in it a vehicle so much as a rusty Radio Flyer wagon (so sad. Rosebud), and it looks pretty bad. I don't know what Stanley Tucci was thinking. Cher, yes, that makes sense - she has never underestimated the power of a good paycheck. I'm going to give her a pass on this one. It's like Mermaids, but without the talent, location, story and scene at the end where Christina Ricci ends up in the river. Or maybe that happens, I don't know.
