1* AccidentalInnuendo: "I've been brought down to my knees/And I've been pushed way past the point of breakin/But I can take it.."˛* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Are Tess and Ali the heroines of the film, trying to save their club from a developer who wants to tear it down for apartments? Or is Ali just a [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]] [[BitchInSheepsClothing In Sheep's Clothing]] who takes advantage of those around her, including Tess, who lacks any sort of business sense, to wrestle control of a club from both Tess and Marcus, a developer who simply wants to better utilize the property than a run-down, high-maintenance club?˛* SugarWiki/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".˛* ClicheStorm: To the extent that WebVideo/MusicalHell's review consisted of ticking off the list of cliches the film uses.˛%%* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: "Please, just tell me a lie." "I don't love you."˛* EnsembleDarkhorse:˛** Sean and Nikki˛** Music/ChristinaAguilera in a meta sense. She far exceeded the expectations of her and was almost universally called the best part of the movie.˛* SignatureScene: The Music/{{Cher}} solo, Cher and Christina in the trailer, the opening at the bar, Nikki giving make-up advice, or [[spoiler:Natalie flipping out]].˛* {{Squick}}: They share makeup brushes!˛* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: 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.˛----
