"Burlesque" is loud, brash and as subtle as a sledgehammer. Does that mean the Movie Slut didn't dig it? Nooooooo. Yes, it's predictable. Yes, it's obvious. Yes, it's as fluffy as cotton candy. But who cares when you have the always endearing Cher and the talented Christina Aguilieri.
You've seen this story a gazillion times before. Small town gal comes to Hollywood to make it big. Her path is riddled with pot holes and road blocks. But — yeah — she makes it!
No gray cells are challenged here. Save them for another flick.
