Burlesque Gets A Good Review….From Jane Fonda!

Hey! For the most part she's made pretty good flicks, so we're gonna trust her judgment!

Jane Fonda was lucky enough to be at the premiere of Burlesque the other night, and took the time to give the readers of her blog her thoughts on the film - as well as pay tribute to the recently deceased publicist Ronni Chasen, with whom she spoke the night at of her tragic passing!

She writes:

I really enjoyed the movie. I was revved up because I was so looking forward to seeing Cher again on the big screen and she didn’t disappoint. It could have been done very differently, an older, former beauty and dancer who’s desperately trying to keep from losing her club to a developer. That wouldn’t have worked with Cher cause she’s still glam and can carry it off. Her voice is still really good and strong, and, as I said in the Twitters I sent that evening, the two opening numbers, hers and Christina’s, were knockout!

Then there is Christina. I have not followed her closely before but, wow, she was spectacular: the way she looked, the way she sang, the way she danced and the way she acted. She came across, to me anyway, as likeable. You root for her. I found her poignant. I got all teary several times. I thought there was real chemistry between her and her (really sexy, handsome) love interest.

I had a chance to hug Cher and chat a moment with Christina. But forgot to take any more photos. My bad!

Who knows what the critics will say. It would be easy to pick the movie apart for being too like an extended music video. But when you have Aguilera and Cher and all that dancing and songs, why not. It made for a good evening. A good date flick.

During the evening I sat and spoke with PR maven, Ronni Chasen. She did the PR for “On Golden Pond.” You can imagine the shock and heartbreak when we learned the next morning that she had been shot 5 times in the chest and killed while driving down an exclusive street in Beverly Hills coming home from the premiere. No one knows who or why—yet.

IT give us pause, yes? How fragile life is. We never know, so we need to make it matter while we can.

Such lovely words at the end! And so true!

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts about the movie, bb! We'll have to wait until we see it ourselves, but we imagine that we're going to share your exact sentiments!

Thoughts??

    Oh, and as for the movie - it's not even on my list to watch for free over the internet. Who knows, maybe when it's on late night cable 5 years from now and I'm flipping through the channels, I might stop for a minute or 2…but probaly not. Cher and Christina Aguwhatever in a movie? Man, someone's gonna lose their cush job over this bomb.

    My thought is why she wasn't executed almost 40 years ago or at least in federal prison.

    I actually go to an Advanced screening Perez and you guys are in for a damn treat! The movie is absolutely AMAZING. From start to finish. Yes, the plot has been done before but how much of whats out there is actually original (im looking at you Gaga). Anyway, i expected this to be a total disaster and to my surprise it was flawless. Xtina can act, who knew? An I predict she will even get an Oscar nomination and even win for her big ballad in the movie. Just amazing.

    For once, listen to your parents. DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER. If I had, id have missed out on what was the best time ive had in a movie theater in years. You walk out feeling alive…and wanting to dance.

    Jane Fond is a real hollywood legend you piece of shit. She doesn't get "lucky" because she's invited to a movie.

    BTW, get ready to be earplugs, Floptina blows your head off, literally.

    Ronni's death was a shocker! I am going to see this movie and taking my 2 kids to see Harry Potter! One for me one for them. I love Harry Potter myself.
    But these are the must see movies for me.
