Cher is Edward Cullen in Disguise?

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.

See more on Newsweek.

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.


  1. Hmm, the San Francisco Chronicle gave Burlesque a really good review. So I guess we’ll just have to go see it and judge for ourselves. I didn’t know Gigandet was in it though. I wonder if he dances and sings too.

  2. Ha Ha thats Funny

    • All I can say is that I’m a Cher fan and before Kristen Stewart, she was my absolute favorite actress. Maybe Kristen and Cher should make a movie together. That would be interesting.

      • Sounds like either way, you’ll have a good time. If it is good, you’ll enjoy it; if it is bad, you can laugh at it.

        Plus, Cam eye candy is never a bad thing! 😉

    Any woman out there close to 60 that wouldn’t give a butt cheek to look half as good as Cher? I never trust the critics, they love some of the ‘dumb and dumber’ movies that you literally need to check your brain at the door to watch so, whatever! Those who can, do, those who can’t grow up to be critics.
