Trailer Tuesdays!

RYAN: I'm thrilled that yet another one of most anticipated movies of the year, Burlesque, is coming to theaters tomorrow. My favorite movie genre is the musical, and we're lucky if we get one per year; and this week we're getting two!! But I digress... let's talk Burlesque first.CAROLINE: As a heterosexual person, I am not nearly as excited for Burlesque as you are. You know I love musicals, but this looks like such campy cheese. It looks the PG-13 version of Showgirls, and I'm already over it.RYAN: But shouldn't your love of musicals override all that? I want you to be excited!CAROLINE: I'm excited for the dancing, for Cher and Stanley Tucci and to see how bad Christina Aguilera's acting is, but that's about it.RYAN: Well, Madonna was great in her movie musical, Evita, so don't count Xtina out yet. And I'm a huge Christina Aguilera fan, so I'm super excited to see what she does with this role. This movie is so up my alley; even if it's just a big Christina music video, I'll be happy. But honestly, I think this movie looks more like Chicago than Showgirls.CAROLINE: Gasp!! How dare you compare this film to the Oscar-level brilliance of Chicago!?RYAN: I'm just saying, the cast is very worthy. Don't forget Alan Cumming's in there too.CAROLINE: Fine. I'm excited for the actors, but I'm going in with zero expectations for the movie. I suspect it will be utter crap. Watch the trailer here: RYAN: Next up is Love & Other Drugs, starring Anne Hathaway, who's probably my favorite actress right now, and Jake Gyllenhaal.CAROLINE: You definitely like Anne more than me; sometimes she drives me bananas. But I'm psyched for this movie nonetheless since she's not so irritating in the trailer.RYAN: I have the best expectations for this movie; I really want it to be a good romantic comedy.CAROLINE: It's kind of a '90s period piece in that it takes place when Viagra is first introduced to the world. As for the rom com angle, I think this movie is more of a romantic drama but they want us to think it's a rom com.RYAN: Hmm. Well, I'm hoping it'll be funny. I so enjoyed Morning Glory and I want it to be just like that.CAROLINE: The supporting cast looks good - Oliver Platt, Hank Azaria, Judy Greer. If the movie's as good as its cast, I'll be happy. Check out the trailer here: RYAN: And finally, the other movie musical this week is Tangled, the Disney retelling of Rapunzel, which is their first princess movie in computer animated 3D. This movie brings back the songwriter from The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, so the music is sure to be fabulous. I can't wait!CAROLINE: You know I'm not a fan of the animated kids' movie, but this one looks pretty cute. And what a coup for Mandy Moore to get the lead role. Same goes for the guy from TV's Chuck. RYAN: Who doesn't want to escape into a happily-ever-after kind of movie like this? I've been so excited for this movie just from hearing they were doing it, before I even saw the trailer. So you can imagine my joy when the trailer was actually great.CAROLINE: They're totally downplaying the musical angle in the trailer though. There's no singing in the ones I've seen. I read that they want the movie to appeal equally to girls and boys, so that must be why. RYAN: It's too bad they have to do that, but whatever gets people to the theater. I think this is a going to be a big hit for Disney. Watch the trailer here: Cheeky & Fresh Movie Reviews
