The movie bits -- they're as you'd imagine, a sort of smaller-scale Moulin Rouge set on a stage. Aguilera's got on the small-town-girl wig to play Ali, Hough goes wigged redhead for Georgia, and Bell's a brunette. But Cher takes center stage for this behind-the-scenes look, and it really seems like she's in her own little world, especially once she's sitting down for an interview alongside Stanley Tucci. He takes her quirk with ease, even when she giggles and describes him as a lecherous old man ogling all the young butts that walk by. But it seems more yearning to be in the spotlight, as she talks about being surrounded by girls 1/3 her age.
The film comes out this Thanksgiving. It seems like an interesting time to go burlesque ... unless they're subtly warning us that Burlesque will be a turkey?
