I'm usually very demanding and discriminating when it comes to evaluating movies...
Nevertheless, I will go see Burlesque when it opens later this month. Lord knows I've enjoyed a lot of films, even of late. This is not about enjoying and respecting a film. I can't for the life of me remember the last time I had fun at the movies. I'm talking me as an eight-year-old, watching Timon and Pumba sing "Hakuna Matata," honest-to-goodness fun. So for Burlesque, I have only one request. And it's a small one. I hope the filmmakers have obliged.
If (if?) Burlesque absolutely must be bad...at least have the good taste to make it very very bad. I'm talking Showgirls bad. I need this.
That is all.
