Magic Mike

You have no idea how excited I was to see this movie.

Channing Tatum. Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey. See how I had good reasons to want to run to the theater?

But what I'm about to say next could get me stoned. Or hated. Or even lose a few readers. I know it's going to be shocking.

Other than seeing hottie Channing strip to his bare bum, which was niiiiiiice, and see him dance like I've never seen anyone dance before, I hated it.
There I said it.
I hated it.
Obviously, I wasn't going to see the movie for the awesome storyline. But ladies, this movie sucked.

And here are my reasons for feeling this way.

1. Alex Pettyfer is not a very good actor. Unless he's really not an idiot, and he just did an awesome job acting the part. I was expecting big things from him. Fail.

2. I'll never look at this man the same way again. I've always loved him; I mean what's not to love? But he played a freakin' loony weirdo. I know he was playing a part, but geez. It was bad. I can't believe he signed up to do this.

3. Why? Just why. Gross.

4. I think I could have done a better job acting than this chick. Did they just pick her up off the street one day and shove her into the movie? It was painful to watch. Edit: I did look her up on IMDB.com and her dad is Warner Bros. president and COO. That explains so much. 

Do I regret seeing it and think it was a waste of my money? No. Because seeing Channing for 2 hours totally made it worth it. I mean look at him.

But I won't watch it again. And if you haven't seen it yet? Just google it. You can see the pictures and videos online.

You're welcome.

  1. I can see your points. I saw it Friday night, and I didn't hate it. I went in with extremely low expectations. I would have preferred more dance scenes and less attempt at a "plot." But oh well. It was a good girls' night out. :)

  3. I'm not seeing it in the theatre, but I will be adding this to my Netflix queue at some point. Because - Joe Manganiello. Also Channing Tatum, but mostly, Joe Manganiello.
