PG-13 | | Drama, Music, Musical
A small-town girl ventures to Los Angeles and finds her place in a neo-burlesque club run by a former dancer.
The photo of seven-year-old Ali with her mother is actually a photo of a much younger Christina Aguilera with her real-life mother, Shelly Kearns.
Who does a girl have to flirt with to get from here... to up there?
Jack: Is this you flirting?
Ali Rose: With someone wearing more eyeliner than me? Yeah.
Jack: Through that door over there. Ask for Tess. She's your guy. Flirt away.
During the "Tough Lover" sequence, a crew member lowers the curtain by pulling on the side of the rope closest to him. When Tess tells him to raise the curtain, he begins to pull up on the same portion of the rope. This would be impossible, due to the way fly systems are weighted. The proper method is to pull down on the other side of the rope.
The credits play over a background of the stage set from the final scene ("Show Me How to Burlesque" dance number).
