Clearly the same set of problems will occur: But my morals? What about my morals?? (Jk, jk, more like “Are these nails sharp enough to carve out the soul of the impressionable ingenue??”) But it seems clear that Burlesque is taking on a high brow interpretation of the scantily clad dancer genre. The Shakespearean themes are very evident in the 3 minute preview. It is quite clear that Xtina will fall in love with an emotionally unavailable man (who may be crazy, may just be pretending to be; has heaps of mommy issues; and is trying to avenge his father's death) and in an huge blow-out--after her biggest gig, no less--drowns herself while singing a somber rendition of “Ain’t no other man.” I know, homage to Striptease much?
Different for Tucci:
