Last Friday, our dreams finally came true: Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah’s Sister Act-meets-Save the Last Dance movie, Joyful Noise, debuted, combining two of our favorite over-the-top personalities in one giant festival of gospel, beat-boxing, and oddly close-fitting choir robes. It’s by far the campiest movie offering of the still young year, and it got us thinking about our favorite movie duos that are, to quote John Waters’ definition of “camp” from The Simpsons, “tragically ludicrous or ludicrously tragic.” Check out our picks for film’s ten most gloriously campy duos after the jump.
Cher and Christina Aguilera in Burlesque
Cher and Xtina’s turns as burlesque expert and newbie waitress, respectively, were terrifically terrible. The camp chemistry between them, however? Spectacular. It was a sequin-spangled belt-a-thon, though the lack of a Cher and Christina duet still stings a little bit.
