The movie is a great tribute to the past and a reminder of what we could have been. A true tribute to the past, to the history of burlesque, and to the good old days. The acting was amazing, and the casting was perfect. The music was great, the costumes were great, the story was great. The music was very beautiful and the voice of Kevin Nealon was perfect. I can't wait to see it again!

As a former Burlesque performer I was able to see more than I ever thought possible. I felt like I was in the front row at my first burlesque show. The magic of the burlesque is alive and well on this screen and now I want to thank those that made this movie possible. It was really well done. I felt like I was there and it was really surreal. I hope that all of you will see this movie and become Burlesque performers like me. I know you would not be able to do this with your own money but with the funds given to the film it is truly possible. I hope that there is a sequel for this film.

This film was amazing. I have always loved burlesque and I love this film. The performances are great, and I love the way the film is filmed. I love how the film looks. I have never been to a burlesque show, but I can't wait to go! This is one of the best films I have ever seen. It is an amazing film. I can't wait to see it again.

I've watched this movie many times, with interest, because I was interested in the characters and how they reflected on themselves. In fact, I felt like this was a good study on character and how they overcome themselves to achieve the best for themselves. The scenes are well written and very well acted. I think the only one that would be uninteresting is Veronica. She does a bad imitation of RuPaul's Drag Race. But then, in addition, when she tries to get a job, she gets the job. This is something that has been done before, but to really show her character, it has to be something more, and the ending is what makes it all worthwhile. The movie shows us what RuPaul's Drag Race is really about. And this is why it is really, really great. It has everything: acting, music, costumes, music, etc. It's an amazing movie, a must-see for any Drag Queen.

The film is about a young woman who wants to become a burlesque dancer but is very shy and nervous. She gets a job at a burlesque club and finds that she has a lot of talent. However, she also has to deal with her jealous sister, her sister's boyfriend, and her sister's boyfriend's girlfriend. The film is very funny and I laughed a lot. I think it's a great film and I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of burlesque.

This is by far one of the best movies I've seen in a while. I would love to hear what others think about this movie. It is truely powerful and moving, as well as entertaining. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys great movies about coming of age and the end of the world. Also anyone who likes to laugh and enjoy a good story. In my humble opinion, this movie is a must see.

Now I could give this movie the obligatory 3 and a half stars. This is not the type of film I would go out of my way to see, but because it is a true story, it's always good to see a movie that really tells a story. This film really tells a story about the two women who were caught up in the system and became sideswiped by a very difficult situation. Once they got caught, they lost control of their lives, but they did what they could to save their lives, and that is exactly what you will see in this movie. The acting was so good, and the characters were so well thought out and completely believable. I found myself very invested in the story, and even though I never was personally in the situation, I still cared for the characters, and had a very strong connection to what was going on. I thought the direction was beautiful and the cinematography was amazing, but the story is what really stuck with me. I was so touched and touched by this film. It was a very satisfying movie. It made me feel like I cared about these characters, and I would recommend it to anyone that needs a change of scenery. There are so many great films out there that are not all that realistic. This movie definitely shows the flaws of the system, and you will see a great change of pace in this movie.

I liked this film very much, although it was a bit long. Also, it's very important to remember that the first film was a kind of disaster movie in every sense of the word, with big empty spaces and a few obligatory splashes of blood. But then the second film took over and really let the viewers see and feel the new world, the original world and it got really cool. The movie was pretty much perfect from the start, but the second part became a little less, although still excellent. I saw it with a friend and we both liked it. It's a good thing to watch this film with some people who don't understand it. This movie was a great piece of art, but it's not the only art to see.

The sad news is that this movie has been released. I don't even remember hearing of it and there are so few of these movies. It's amazing to me that this movie has been released. I was actually at the exhibition of the movie on May 22nd and my friend was. She was very excited about the movie. I honestly can't tell you how much I was impressed. The story is very exciting. The movie is very funny and touching. I thought it was a great movie. I think it would be great for young children to see and for older children to see. It's very worth seeing. I will give it a 9 out of 10. The DVD is very beautiful.

This is a beautiful movie, and is a must for anyone who loves burlesque or bollywood. The acting, direction and cinematography are flawless. It is an artistic masterpiece. I have seen many movies that have been good, but have lacked a few things that I thought made the movie special. This movie has it all. Beautifully filmed, an interesting plot, great performances, great cinematography, and really good music. I really can't express how much I love this movie. The cinematography is the reason I give it such a high rating. It is one of the best things about this movie. The acting was also really good. Everyone acted really well. You don't have to be a fan of burlesque to appreciate this movie, but it does help. I especially loved the ending scene, it was very different from the rest of the movie, and was perfect. The music was also really great. I especially love this movie for the music. I think the music fits well with the movie. The music is very creative and different from other burlesque movies. I would suggest this movie to anyone who wants to see something that is different and very creative. There is something for everyone in this movie. It was well-written, and everything is different from other burlesque movies. I can't believe I'm saying this, but this movie is definitely an artistic masterpiece. It is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It was so well-done. It is a beautiful movie, and one of the best I've ever seen.

It is rare that I write a review, but when I saw the movie, I couldn't help but add my two cents to this review. First, I'm a singer, and this movie has been an absolute revelation for me, and I can't say that about most of the others in the theater. Second, I haven't had the pleasure of seeing the documentary about the time of the making of this movie, so I wasn't familiar with how the world looked back then, and the people who made it. But I do know that one of the reasons why this movie has been such a hit has been because it allows a writer/director to project the feelings he/she feels. The writer/director, using real people, presents the feelings he/she experiences, and allows the viewer to feel those emotions, as well as the feelings of the people around him/her. For some, I think this movie will resonate in a way that may be hard to understand. But if you can relate to this movie, and can't see yourself doing anything like it, then you will appreciate the message that the writer/director is trying to get across. The writing is amazing, and the directing was incredible, but the film-making was very well done, especially because of the performances. I think this is a movie that will stay with me for a long time, and hopefully others will appreciate this movie as well. Highly recommended!

I love the performances and the story. Although I am not an actress, I saw the movie and was very impressed. I was surprised how sexy Nina was. Although the movie wasn't as good as the play, it still did a good job. The movie is very creative and interesting. It makes you think about your relationships with your children. I give the movie a 9 because it wasn't perfect but there were no weak parts.

The first half hour of this film was so intense that I was glued to my seat. It is highly disturbing and the characters were truly bizarre. The movie was far more than just a murder mystery. The characters were bizarre, crazy and grotesque. This movie showed that the world is not so dark and evil that the good guys are always able to turn on the bad guys. I saw this movie in the theater and the seats where far from the center of the theater. The film was filmed with the stars showing their nude bodies and it really shows how evil the world really is. I think that people who see this movie will also see how much it was good. A lot of people thought it was bad. It wasn't that bad. It was a good movie.

It's a movie about a group of dancers at a nightclub, and they will begin a spectacular and spectacularly risky competition, that will lead to the downfall of the club and the deaths of all of the dancers. I believe that it's a must see movie. I don't know much about this group, but this movie really brought me into their world, and made me understand who they are and what they did, and why they did it. The scenes were really nice, the dancing was breathtaking and most of all, it was a beautiful story. I also think that the actors and actresses were really good, especially Alice Currie, and Gabrielle Di Crescenzo, who's really good. The people who was dancing with them, they were really good. I definitely recommend this movie.

I had to do a second search, because this movie is not very well known. It is, however, very good and the actors and actresses are very good. I can only say this: This is a movie you need to watch. It will make you think.

I'm always aware that 'dying will make you a better person'. This movie does this without giving up on the story. The characters are well drawn, they have true emotion and give you a believable reason for their actions. The ending is well thought out. It's not a happy ending, but it is the story of a person who will make the right choices for the right reasons. I would recommend this to anyone. 9/10

Here is a VERY talented actor who is on the way to making a well-deserved breakthrough. He is also an outstanding director and cinematographer. I hope this movie gets picked up in a major theater. I would be very interested in seeing it again. The movie is a metaphor of the gay and transgender experience. It has the best scenes I have seen all year. The music is very good too. I will be recommending this movie to everyone I know. It is a very worthwhile film. It could have gone to zero, but for the three guys and a librarian, it is a very worthwhile film. 8 out of 10.
