I have always been a fan of Cher, ever since I was 15 and went to see Mermaids. She was at her peak in the 90s, great films, singles, albums and she even had a fitness video out; Mbf and I were v.inspired by her, so much so mbf still serves up finger food ala Mrs Flax!
When I saw she was in the new movie, Burlesque, I hopped skipped and jumped along to the cinema, with my 14 year old niece in tow. A lovely cast that includes Christina Aguilera as the lead and supporting actors Cher and Stanley Tucci (whom I also love!). The film has a slight Coyote Ugly feel to it, and despite a slow start I really got into it; a nice feel good film and even better the men are all handsome – Mc Steamy from Greys Anatomy is in it which was a real bonus for me!
Cher plays a great character, her usual strong but kind role; I was slightly distraught when my niece leaned over and asked me if she was a man though – most upsettting! Regardless of this, I would still love to be as cool as her when I am her age…If you haven’t seen it yet, do go along and enjoy some light hearted entertainment and a little bit of Cher. :)
