Not so much pin-ups as they are popstars...

Burlesque review

Less the Showgirls-esque car wreck you’d hope for, more a minor fender-bender in the careers of two über-divas, Burlesque offers a ho-hum fantasy world where topless dancers not only keep their tops on, they caterwaul like over-processed pop stars too.

Christina Aguilera is the waitress who discovers (not-so-)dirty dancing, Cher is an all-knowing club owner and Kristen Bell is a stroppy starlet.

The painfully obvious plot lurches along from there. Harmless froth, it turns strippers into nothing more than family- friendly feather-abusers.
