When Hollywood does song and dance movies badly you get Glitter. When it does it right you get Flashdance and Footloose. Hollywood’s latest is Burlesque. Equal parts Chicago and a Pussycat Dolls show, Burlesque reminds us that T&A doesn’t have to be shown to be sexy.

Burlesque’s story is a bit Showgirls-esque. Just a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world (hey that’s Journey, that is Journey), she took the mid-day bus going to Hollywood (ok that’s just Welcome to the Jungle). But where Showgirls is Razzie-tastic, Burlesque has great performances from its stars and supporting cast.
