'Burlesque' the movie
I've gotta be quite economical with my time and my money at the moment as I'm moving house in two weeks. So in the absence of any full-on Burlesque shows or expensive afternoon teas, I thought it'd be a good time to stay in and catch this film....
Oh my god, I'm so glad I did. I think I said on Twitter at the time that this has replaced Dirty Dancing as my favourite crap/fab film ever!! One of the great things about Dirty Dancing was the soundtrack and even though Burlesque doesn't quite live up to that it still has some gems. For example, there is a pop-type cover of Marilyn Manson's 'The Beautiful People' which was hilarious!
And this really is just kitsch, naughty indulgence at it's best - cheese, glamour, glitter and sex on legs in the form of Cam Gigandet (who is sexy in everything except Twilight surprisingly).
It's the film equivalent of the evenings when you reject a proper dinner so you can have two helpings of dessert instead. It's buying a bottle of champagne for no other reason than to drink it in a hot bubble-bath. It's wearing those 1950's marabou kitten-heel slippers round the house, even though there's nobody there to see you: an innocent/guilty pleasure that no-one except you needs to know about....except I just told you....
But I'm ok with you knowing how much I enjoyed this film!
Until next time...xox
