Newsweek just reviewed Burlesque. Essentially their review boils down to that in their opinion the movie is so bad, it’s unintentionally a great comedy. So, they then came up with a list of what you might call their top six bad-good parts. The Twilight connection hit on number 4.
4. Twilight. The message of Burlesque is that Cher, like Edward Cullen, is a nocturnal creature who will never, ever die, so we might as well give up and let her bite us. During her big musical sequence, You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me, she even shimmers in the same way as a Stephenie Meyer vampire. Credit the glittery lips, eyelids, tank top, shoes, and belt. Notice: no wrinkles.
The movie also co-stars Cam Gigandet, who played James in the first Twilight movie. He seems to have escaped a scathing review…at least from Newsweek.
