Famous film director Guido Contini struggles to find harmony in his professional and personal lives, as he engages in dramatic relationships with his wife, his mistress, his muse, his agent, and his mother.
The Burlesque Lounge has its best days behind it. Tess, a retired dancer and owner of the venue, struggles to keep the aging theater alive, facing all kinds of financial and artistic challenges. With the Lounge's troupe members becoming increasingly distracted by personal problems and a threat coming from a wealthy businessman's quest to buy the spot from Tess, the good fortune seems to have abandoned the club altogether. Meanwhile, the life of Ali, a small-town girl from Iowa, is about to change dramatically. Hired by Tess as a waitress at the Lounge, Ali escapes a hollow past and quickly falls in love with the art of burlesque. Backed by newfound friends amongst the theater's crew, she manages to fulfill her dreams of being on stage herself. Things take a dramatic turn though when Ali's big voice makes her become the main attraction of the revue. Written by
During the "Tough Lover" sequence, a crew member lowers the curtain by pulling on the side of the rope closest to him. When Tess tells him to raise the curtain, he begins to pull up on the same portion of the rope. This would be impossible, due to the way fly systems are weighted. The proper method is to pull down on the other side of the rope. See more »
I don't get why everyone's having a conniption over her, she's just a tacky farm girl from Iowa.
And we know a cow when we see one.

This movie was beyond anything i could have ever expected. Christina really pulled it off and Cher she was amazing as always. Saw it today and I went out and bought the sound track. The music is great! This is a movie i will buy when it comes out on Blu-Ray. Hurray! The story is very simple and that is a good thing. The writer did not over do it with drama and was able to focus on the characters and the music. I was so surprised when I saw that Christina can not only sing and dance her pants off but she can actually act. The best part of this movie is the music. This is my new favorite movie. I went into the movie after getting up on Black Friday at 5am and i exited the theater in a great mood and with tons of energy.
