As you may have guessed, we’re pop music fans. Wil in particular absorbs everything in and around the genre and goes back for more. So why wouldn’t we love Burlesque? A movie starring a pop star (Christina Aguilera, XTina if you’re nasty) doing pop starish things like singing and dancing. It’s right up our ALLEY, and if you’ve seen it you’ll get that pun.
Today is extra special though as we are hosting our friend Josh from the Movies That Rock Podcast (@RockMoviesPod on Twitter). His podcast focuses on movies which center around music in one way or another so we felt like Burlesque would be a PERFECT time to collab. And it was! We had such a good time with Josh that we’re already planning another episode together in which we’ll talk about Crossroads and Wil’s first true love, Britney Spears.
Today’s episode is a lot of fun. The movie itself certainly has its flaws which we lovingly point out. However, Kristin actually kind of likes Burlesque so it has a strong defender as well. No one would ever say that this is a great movie, but it’s very watchable and if you’re in the right mindset it’s a really good time. So enjoy this pop-filled episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
