  • Accidental Innuendo: "I've been brought down to my knees/And I've been pushed way past the point of breakin/But I can take it.."

  • Awesome Music: As much of a Cliché Storm 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".
