Too cute and witty!, 22 October 2014
Author: c_minvielle

This film was so much fun to watch and easily better than much of what come out of the larger firms. Loved it!

It was well thought out and easily worth the watch. I look froward to watching it again and again. It was so refreshing to see a film that allows for such intelligent humour and brilliant direction. My only complaint is that the release was not wide enough to allow many of my friends all over the world to share in the laughs. This film is a brilliant watch for anyone who has been near the Burlesque scene. I hope that eventually you all have a chance to see Burlesque Assassins. I know it means a great deal to me.
