Burlesque Premier Screening

Date : 7th February 2011 (Monday)
Time : 9.00pm
Venue : Mid Valley GSC

Courtesy of Nuffnang and Shannon, i get to watch Burlesque screening a week before it official release in Malaysia! Woops! It is an awesome movie ;)

Ali (Christina Aguilera) is a small-town girl with a big voice who follows her dreams all the way to Los Angeles. After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theatre that is home to an inspired musical revue, Ali lands a job as a cocktail waitress from Tess (Cher), the club's proprietor and headliner. Burlesque's outrageous costumes and bold choreography enrapture the young ingenue, who vows to perform there one day. Soon enough, Ali makes friends with a dancer named Georgia (Julianne Hough), finds an enemy in a jealous performer named Nikki (Kristen Bell) and wins the eye of bartender musician Jack (Cam Gigandet). With the help of a sharp-witted stage manager (Stanley Tucci) and gender-bending host named Alexis (Alan Cumming), Ali makes her way from the bar to the stage. Her spectacular voice restores the lounge to its former glory, though not before a charismatic entrepreneur (Eric Dane) arrives with an enticing proposal.

What can i say? Great music and stage performance by Christina Aguilera and Cher! The story progression and well arrange from the beginning. However i guess the story might process too fast from the beginning and lead abit draggy and abit bored at d middle of the show. Nevertheless, the movie is still enjoyable especially u r kind who love stage & musical performances :)

Here are 2 of the song that i love from the movie :)

Not a must miss movie ;)
