%%* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: Jack's [[spoiler:seduction technique.]]


* MarySue: Ali has a generic tragic backstory, is beautiful, gets just about whatever she wants, other characters praise the hell out of her, she solves everyone's problems and her flaws aren't treated as problematic.



* [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter They Wasted a Perfectly Good Voice]]: Sure, Creator/KristenBell is no Christina, but she can hold her own. It would have been nice to hear her sing, as proven by ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. Also, her [[ThoseTwoActors old favourite co-star]] from many things, Creator/DiannaAgron, is with her again and can [[Series/{{Glee}} sing a little]], too.

* AwesomeMusic: As much of a ClicheStorm as the movie itself may be, the soundtrack is actually pretty good, with standouts including "Welcome to Burlesque", "Express", "Show Me How You Burlesque" and Christina's cover of "Something's Got a Hold On Me".

Added DiffLines:

* ClicheStorm: To the extent that WebVideo/MusicalHell's review consisted of ticking off the list of cliches the film uses.


* JustForFun/XMeetsY:
** WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows described the movie as "''Film/{{Cabaret}}'' without the tragedy, ''Film/MoulinRouge'' without the prostitution, ''Film/{{Chicago}}'' without the murder and ''Film/{{Showgirls}}'' without the batshit insane". He went so far as to call it, ''Showgirls: [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Friendship is Magic]]''.
** On a similar note, Creator/MarkKermode dubbed the film, "''Showgirls'' for twelve year olds".

* EnsembleDarkHorse: Sean and Nikki
** Christina Aguilera in a meta sense. She far exceeded the expectations of her and was almost universally called the best part of the movie.
* SignatureScene: The Cher solo, Cher and Christina in the trailer, the opening at the bar, Nikki giving make-up advice, or [[spoiler:Natalie flipping out]].

* UnfortunateImplications: There's one scene where, as a response to Nikki's rudeness, Ali tells Nikki "You're just so damn beautiful... No one would ever know that you're a dude", which could be interpreted as transphobic. That intepretation is only strengthened later when Nikki says "She called me a drag queen!" when asked why she dislikes Ali.
