Xtina Gets Panned By Critics

| Filed under: Christina AguileraFilm Flickers

Yikes!

No one can deny that Christina Aguilera is an amazing singer and performer on stage, but critics are saying that her acting needs some work.

Variety's Peter Debruge said:

"Aguilera, while undeniably entertaining when her character is onstage, cannot spin the slight backstory into anything resembling a full-blooded person. It's a shortcoming, considering how much Tucci and Cher are able to do with their relatively minor roles."

Ouch. Maybe she'll do better next time!

    She's not an actor so I really wasn't expecting an Oscar winning acting performance.



  2. 2

    Want a GURANTTED Flop, just make sure Floptina is involved…everything she touches goes to shit



  3. 3

    saw that coming a mile away!!..xtina its time for a reality show..



  4. 4

    @tuna TOO BAD you werent available TUNA



  5. 5

    she's at least better then that whore Paris Hilton.



  6. 6

    Perez is so lame. The movie has been receiving great amazing reviews and he shows this exception,he's trying so hard.



  7. 7

    You are pathetic perez. lol @ you posting the 1 negative review, when all the others are positive. So far at rottentomatoes.com, there are 2 fresh and 0 rotten. Mad?



  8. 8

    I honestly haven't read the reviews, so I can't comment on her, despite what YOU SAY MARIO, cause I know YOU HATE HER. But, lets look at others, MADONNA SUCKS AT ACTING. Desparately seeking Susan, Playing Eva Peron (don't care WHAT SHE WAS NOMINATED FOR), Miley Cyrus, and EVERYOTHER SINGER who becomes a Lifetime actress.THEN, ON THE OTHER SIDE, We have every actress (actors are not as bad with this) Who feel once they become famous they feel they have the right to inflict us with their voices, their 'singing style', 'so unique, their manager, mother, etc. promises, that you will 'WEEP' when you hear it. Yes, you will weep, because it feels like someone took giant spikes and dragged them down a giant chaulk board and the only relief you figure is to take one of those spikes and DRILL IT STRAIGHT THROUGH YOUR SKULL. But, yes, they must make an album, no matter what, because MOMMY mortgage the farm after that music agent PROMISED HER that her lil heid, lind, no, ann, WOULD BE THE NEXT BARBRA STRIESAND . and Mommy knew the agent DID NOT LIE ABOUT HER TALENTED DAUGHER.

    You are pathetic. lol @ you only posting the 1 bad review when all the others so far are positive. At rottentomatoes.com, it has 2 fresh and 0 rotten. Have you read the Hollywood Reporter review? Mad?



  10. 10

    I wasn't expecting much from her but Stanley Tucci is always awesome no matter how small his role is. I will wait for Netflix if I see it at all, no rush.



  11. 11

    it's not a bad review. And there's no need to post criticS,coz it's a single critic (1) that gave a so-so review. And as for me,I have my own opinion.I don't need to listen to critics to make a decision about a movie.



  12. 12

    Oh Mario, How you are back to your antics. You couldn't digest your food without spewing hatred towards this girl. Did gaga called you personally to do this. Maybe you should read more reviews. she is getting excellent reviews from everyone else and you had to post the only negative one. Shame on you fat boy!!

    Btw I saw you on the reunion of the bad girls club. you were sooo fat and stupid. almost got bitch slapped by one of the dirty whores.



  13. 13

    Oh STFU Perez. Xtina is getting glowing reviews as is the movie and the rest of the cast! Hollywood Reporter, Rotten Tomatoes and many of the like are loving it. Stop trying to ruin peoples hard work just because you can. Stop being a grade A bully. I thought you turned over a new leaf. Can't wait to see Burlesque. It looks hot!!!



  14. 14

    Prediction….EPIC FAIL. I wouldn't mind seeing anyone…anyone in the world…other than that whore. They should dub in Dee Snyder. It would be more entertaining and he's infinitely more talented and attractive. Nobody would know that she was missing…except maybe the part that would make it watchable and people wouldn't have to run vomiting from the theater.

    Whatdayawant? Let's see Tucci do a few Aguilera numbers and see what the critics say. It takes doing something for quite a while to get good at it.

    The Examiner.com Boston had this to say;

    "Christina Aguilera has been a pop star for so long and her performance is very good that you forget that this is her first major acting job. Either she wasn't interested in acting or she waited for the perfect movie, but the former Dirrty singer will easily get more offers for film work. The petite powerhouse gives quite a surprise performance and was a major force in the film's music."

    the Hollywood Reporter had this to say;

    So does Aguilera. Her role is kept deliberately nondescript so she can fill it with her own personality and big voice. She does bring beguiling innocence to the part, along with a single-minded determination and a hellacious amount of performing talent.

    looks like someone is up to his old tricks PEREZ!



  17. 17

    Lmfao really dickhead Perez ur halarious um Hollywood reporter and screen levy on rottentomato have been positive reviews so far um variety who cares why don't u stop being an ass are you scared Christina has been getting great reviews Hey bound to ubperformance and Ellen performance. All ready talking shit. He is so jealous she's back Hahaha I can see him stressing.

  18. Dale says – reply to this

    here is another positive review PEREZ!!

    Burlesque” Yes No Films Review

    Yes, definitely see this film. It runs a little long – it’s about two hours – but everything about it was excellent: it had a plot, it had singing and dancing, and the characters were even a bit complicated. I am sure Christina Aguilera will be booking many more movies after this one, and I would love to see Cher in another singing part again soon too.

    I've read a couple of reviews that were glowing for her acting. One even said they wouldn't be surprised to see her get a Golden Globe nod. Of course you'd pick a bad one.



  20. 20

    this is one review on her acting out of the countless that will soon come…every movie and actor gets bad reviews..shut the fuck up



  21. 21

    Re: ClaudiaKRe: Katy_TunaVag_Perry – HA! I agree with both of you!

    I could actually feel my IQ dropping while watching her during the previews of this EPIC FAIL, PATHETIC excuse for a movie! I am THRILLED to see the critics are being honest, and letting everyone know she SUCKS at everything she does.



  22. 22

    Perhaps she should appear on 'Dancing with the Stars'. She might even be good enough to beat a Palin.



  23. 23

    Dude you are such an ignorant hater its despicable. Leave it to you to post the ONE and only negative (so/so) review about the movie so bad.

    People, check out the review in: THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER.
    Variety like perez are just hating cause hes mad. So far all the reviews ive read were positive.

    Parez, I see that you wanted to change your ways and become less of a Bully. Please, now I cant wait for the day you choose to do something about your ignorance.
    Remove all the name calling you want…but the shit stained smell of IGNORANCE still envelopes this site I see.



  24. 24

    @betch84 or shall I say bitch84 stop riding along Perez ass you dumb broad. Um u need to do some research cause theirs 4 positive reviews vs 1 bad so far so don't even start shit talking shit just like Perez. Of course when Perez Hayes the bitches haters fallow go figure.



  25. 25

    Perez, why dont you wait the movie and watch yourself and make a review yourself?. Afterall its your site, and one comment from one critic doesnt count.



  26. 26

    Re: Betch84 – Wow you are really stupid. The criticS are being honest? It's only ONE bad review and the film has so far gotten VARIOUS good reviews.



  27. 27

    Critics? That looks like just one to me. There have been GREAT reviews praising her performance. We'll see what happens when it debuts next week. Love you XTINA!!



  28. 28

    If I wanted a oscar performance, I go with De Niro, Pacino or Streep.

    I want good music and dance.

    Critics are just plain idiots and I never listen to them.

    I am my own critic.



  29. 29

    You need to change the title. It should be Xtina Gets Panned by Critic, since you posted only ONE bad review, and not many. One negative review out of many positive? I knew you still have it in for her.



  30. 30

    its her first movie
    you cant expect her to be like meryl streep.

    but critics are just opinionated.
    you cant please them all.
    some will say its amazing others wont agree



  31. 31

    She's not getting panned, not a Razzie worthy performance so it's good for a first timer no?



  32. 32

    she doesnt have to act well all she has to do is open that mouth and let it ride still one of my favorite singers of all times

    Here is another Review from: IMDb The Internet Movie Database

    "This is a tour de force film with incredible characterization; Cher, Christina Aguilera, Stanley Tucci, Kristen Bell, and Cam Gigandet delivered convincing, compelling performances. Christina Aguilera in particular surprised me with her emotional scope and comedic timing. This successful musician will definitely be inundated with numerous film offers after the premiere of this film; she has the potential to be a very successful actress."

    You are such an ass hole!

    OOOooops! What's this? i think this is the fourth one i sent you…

    Review from:Movie Buzzers.com

    So I’ve saved the best for last… The music was incredible! With booming musical theatre-inspired numbers, very reminiscent of Aguilera’s signature sound on her Back to Basics album, she must be bound for a Golden Globe nomination- at least! If she wasn’t the star we know her now as, this film would make her one. She solidifies the smart choices that she has made in her career by always only singing important ballads and powerhouse upbeat pop songs, featuring the impressive range of her naturally jaw-dropping vocal instrument. Burlesque continues to separate the starlet even more profoundly from the teen princess fad from which she emerged back in the 90s, especially seeing how little Jessica Simpson or Britney Spears have brought to the movie world.

    I think you should retract your posting! …you look like an idiot.

  37. 37

    SHE'S A SINGER NOT AN ACTRESS. BUT XTINA'S PERSONALITY NORMALLY SUCKS SO THAT REVIEW WASNT A SURPRISE. MAJORITY SINGERS ALWAYS RECEIVE CRAPTASTIC ACTING REVIEWS. BEYAAAWNCE IS THE WORST! IMMA SURE IF XTINA PLAYED A BITCHY COLD ASS CHARACTER WITH GANGSTA MOUTH SHE WOULD GET AN OSCAR NOM. GEE, THAT SORTA SOUNDS LIKE XTINA EVERYDAY - NOT A SURPRISE, HAHA!

    Re: Dale – thanks for posting the reviews! I've read some and some I had not seen yet, and they just make me even more excited to see this movie!



  43. 43

  46. 46

    The movie has been receiving great reviews and Christina has also been praised considering this is her debut movie! I saw the movie and she was amazing! The best!

  47. Rala says – reply to this

    I don't see you posting all the GOOD reviews she has gotten!

    Re: XTINA IS A POP MUSIC ICON!!! BICHES!! – Love that your A Christina fan and u feel u need to defend her… but seriously your teenager rants on every christina post to anyone who says something negative is embarrassing to her. Grow up already and appreciate her music and let the haters hate already

    Everyone knew this movie and Aguilera would suck. Burlesque has MAJOR FLOP written all over it. I was gonna say that she should stick to what she's best at, music, but she's not even good at that anymore. Her voice is really the only thing she's got going for her, but unfortunately it's not enough.



  51. 51

    now you start it again, you just cant stand that she is doing it better and the best… this is just one single revew, I ve read several critics saying she was great.



  52. 52

    Who listen critics anyway u_u



  53. 53

    Re: Dale – Yes, exactly, what he says. Anyone can write a review on imdb, they're called USER reviews for a reason. Why not take a review from some Aguilera fansite, pretty sure you'll find positive ones there…



  54. 54

    As someone that went to a private screening of "Burlesque" after winning tickets, I can say that this review is way off. I will admit that Christina as "Ali" is better on stage during the film. This is where Christina shines! Her acting during the "back story" wasn't great, but it wasn't the worst either. In fact she exceeded my expectations playing this role. I will admit that my expectations were not that high, but I give credit where its do and she deserves some credit for this film. She was beautiful…no she was stunning throughout the film. And surprisingly had some great comedic timing and definitely brought the attitude to turn up the drama on screen. I loved this movie and advise all to go experience it for yourselves. Its fun and exciting…goosebump getting performances, laugh out loud comedy and some amazing eye candy for both sexes are in store!!!!



  55. 55

    Re: XTINA IS A POP MUSIC ICON!!! BICHES!! – lol i knew your young lame ass be on here..so you said "she's going to be a hit" DUH LITTLE GIRL, she's been out for ever 10 years if she was gna be a hit she be one BY NOW…lol hahahaha…and music awards? her album flocked, you really think she will be up there accepting awards when you have people who ARE IT like beyonce, riri and Nicki? LOL stop it and grow up your the only christina fan alive todate….and jus b/c you get loud w/ caps doesnt make you hard but actully pretty lame, it only takes a coward to "act" hard over a screen, you'll learn when you get older lol and see how lame your choice of music/life style is



  56. 56

    Re: Betch84 – lol yeah maybe they will take this fuk ass movie off the shelf like her album in UK Muhahaha



  57. 57

    Re: dojabus – thank you!!! so glad someone else notices her lame/constant posts….



  58. 58

    I had a chance to see this movie a week before it will debut and i have to agree. I loved when she performed on stage and sang, but when she attempted to act, it wasn't so good. I think they should have cast another female lead or centered the movie more around Cher and the situation she faces in the movie. I wouldn't recommend this movie.

    Re: alfabravo – 'Fat putas?' You're such a nice guy. Does it bug you that she got paid more for that movie than you might make in your lifetime?



  60. 60

    Re: Laury – If you really knew anything, you'd see that this movie already got great reviews. Don't be mad if you can't success at anything in life.

    61

    better her than katy perry or rihanna to fuck it all up.



  62. 62

    Re: BiaesLoca – Okay, Beyonce is good… but Rihanna & Nicki?! Are you fucking serious? I don't know who's worse. And dear, YOUR TASTE IN MUSIC is lame and it's sad how you feel the need to insult singers through the internet. When Christina was making hits, those who are "good at it" according to you, were still lip-syncing to her songs using a comb as a microphone. And everybody has their taste in music, and NO, that girl's not the last Christina fan. I hope you have a horrible day, buh-bye! :)



  63. 63

    while watching the preview when you first posted it, I didn't think she was too great of an actress. But I expected it. I wouldn't go see the film for her acting… I would see it because of her beyond amazing vocals. That's the draw.



  64. 64

    From the preview, it seems like she is overacting her non-performing moments. Performing parts seem good. Not a movie I would pay to see though.



  65. 65

    Re: XTINA IS A POP MUSIC ICON!!! BICHES!! – Oh I just KNEW you'd put your 2 cents in! Question…can you even count to 2? Your spelling is absolutely horrendous! Please….get an education…then maybe a life!!!



  66. 66

    Re: XTINA IS A POP MUSIC ICON!!! BICHES!! – Wow. I didn't even bother reading what you wrote because you can't type proper English, and clearly don't know how to spell. It only goes to show that "x-tina" fans are uneducated idiots JUST like "x-tina".
