claybryce’s review published on Letterboxd:
Predictable, clichéd, yet one-hundred percent fun & completely entertaining musical film about a pretty, small-town girl (Christina Aquilera, not bad as the stereotypical & unbelievably innocent babe in the woods) who moves to LA & becomes a singing sensation at a high-class burlesque club run down the indomitable Cher.
This is not high art people, but you know what? Who fucking cares? The story is threadbare, Cher is being Cher, the songs aren't bad (both divas get their own dramatic songs so they can flourish like the stars they are), the costumes & cinematography are fantastic, some of the guys are hot, and you find yourself having a great time. If you are open to it, and come on, life sucks enough, be open to it.
