Reviews of BurlesqueNovember 29, 2010
Equally fine is Kristen Bell, who is at her best when playing a nasty little bitch. A few years ago I had the pleasure of seeing her as a thief and liar on HBO's Deadwood and she was brilliant, right through to her terrible death. You don't expect someone who looks like her to have to be a nasty little bitch, but when Bell is dfoing that she excels, and thus she is at her best here as the vicious Nikki. When she turns up the hate in her eyes she is a force to be reckoned with.
[Kristen Bell's] absolutely wasted in the role of Nikki, the club's star dancer with a drinking problem. Even though her character is weakly represented throughout the film, Bell manages to make more of a connection to the audience than Aguilera who's on the screen 90% of the time.
The cast is rounded out by an incredible supporting cast, including Kristen Bell as the heavy-drinking, irresponsible diva...
Cher, Tucci, and Bell are genuinely good, while Aguilera and Gigandet are just bad enough that you can enjoy a laugh or two at their expense without wanting to puke into your popcorn.
Kristen Bell was Nikki. I can't remember Kristen Bell ever being pure evil; I mean, she was pretty evil in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but nowhere near as vile as Nikki. I liked it. Kristen Bell should be pure evil more often.
Moreover, if you love Kristen Bell, then don't see Burlesque because you may not love her any longer — she's a bitch in Burlesque, but a very unconvincing one.
The comments lamenting Kristen's post-VM career are full of snarky pity.

Summit of the divas: Cher vs. Christina vs. Stanley vs. KristenThe Globe and Mail: November 23, 2010
Article compares the four lead actors in Burlesque.
Former television star Bell ("Veronica Mars") was supposed to make a big-screen splash in the past couple of years but after the flops of "Couples Retreat" and "When in Rome," expectations may have been adjusted from star to character actress. Though she's too sweet and youthful-looking to be cast as Ali's alcoholic, embittered rival, she handles the part with enjoyable flounce ("I will not be upstaged by a pair of mutant lungs"). Must be tough being a washed-up lip-synch artist who looks as though she could still be in junior high.
Steven Antin On Burlesque, Wooing Cher, and Discovering Ian SomerhalderMovieline: November 23, 2010
Steven Antin, writer and director of Burlesque praises Kristen Bell.
Numbers like "Long John Blues" show that humorous, playful side of burlesque — and so does Kristen Bell, who's absolutely fearless in her performance, particularly in that scene.
So fearless. She really came full speed ahead at me, met with me and said, "I want to do this." Kristen Bell is rare as an actress, because she's the type of actor who jumps out of a plane without a parachute — from a totally fearless place, which is really refreshing and inspiring. She has complete faith and support in the filmmaking process and the director.
