Burlesque Review


Good
It's difficult to imagine a more outrageously camp movie than this glittery romp, and fortunately there's a sense that the cast and crew understand this.

By never taking their ludicrous plot seriously, they've made a true guilty pleasure.

Fed up with dead-end Iowa, Ali (Aguilera) heads for Hollywood. Despite having no experience or training, she's sure she can make it as a singer-dancer. After a series of rejections, she stumbles upon the Burlesque Lounge on Sunset, run by jaded diva Tess (Cher) with the help of her long-suffering buddy Sean (Tucci). Ali charms sexy barman Jack (Gigandet) into a barmaid job, while keeping her sights on the stage. And she's also wooed by Marcus (Dane), a developer who's trying to buy the financially strapped club.

Steven Antin

A spokesperson for studio boss CLINT CULPEPPER has denied the media mogul split from longtime partner Steven Antin after hiring him to direct BURLESQUE.

Culpepper is president of Screen Gems, a subsidiary of Sony Pictures, and reportedly asked his boyfriend of 20 years to write and helm the movie musical, starring Christina Aguilera and Cher.

According to New York Post gossip column PageSix, the pair's relationship broke down following a series of bitter rows while shooting the film.

A source tells the publication, "Steven moved out of their Hollywood mansion and has been living at the Sunset Tower Hotel since the end of October. He has been telling people it is over with Clint. They've broken up before and always got back together. Some friends expect them to reconcile, but this time Steven is saying things are different. Working together was intense."

Chasing Papi Review


Terrible
Director Linda Mendoza's debut film, Chasing Papi, works like this: The movie's three gorgeous Latina leads are dating the same hunky guy, whom they affectionately call Papi (Eduardo Verástegui)--but you already know this from the movie trailer. The women are going to bump into one another at Papi's house in Los Angeles--but you already know this from the horoscope that gets read during the movie's first 15 minutes. For some reason, Papi is going to be unconscious for most of the movie--which you've already figured out from the extended shot of the scotch he just used to chase down a handful of tranquilizers. And finally, the women are going to end up fighting over him and eventually learning something about themselves in the process--which you know because, well, this is what passes for comedy these days.

As if this wasn't enough, there's another plotline running through the movie. To get to Los Angeles in the first place, one of the women, Cici (Sofía Vergara), offers to drive her friend's boyfriend's car from Miami to Hollywood, where it is to be delivered to two guys in a parking lot. Sure enough, the two guys turn out to be criminals of some unspecified sort who get angry when they can't find a bag of cash that was stashed in the car. The FBI gets thrown into the mix and, apparently, fun and laughs are supposed to ensue.
