Christina Aguilera and Cher sing and dance their way through the new Sony Screen Gems production of “Burlesque.” The film stars Christina Aguilera in the role of Ali, a small town girl looking to make it big in the big city. Cher plays Tess, the owner of the club that’s in financial trouble although she refuses to acknowledge it.
It’s a story as old as time, but the cast is good and the music is pretty great. Watch the 8 clips embedded below and see if you and your family want to visit this club come Thanksgiving weekend. It is a safe bet it will have more leggy stockings and glitter than the “Harry Potter” movie, or will it?
