Christina Making Big-Screen Debut

christinaaguilera_lChristina Aguilera (pictured) is making her silver-screen debut in a musical called “Burlesque,” about a small-town girl who makes good, somehow, by working at a Cabaret-like L.A. performance venue. reports: It was written with her in mind, and that makes sense — I simply cannot imagine a better first-movie vehicle for Christina’s big voice and retro-sexy vibe. It’s a crime that she hasn’t graced a musical earlier, in fact, but points for holding out for the right project, as opposed to jumping into the first cheesy teen movie available the minute she became famous. And is it me, or is this basically a slightly-classier version of Coyote Ugly? More to the point: Does that make it more awesome or less? (My head says “less,” but my heart says “more.”)
