Magic Mike, What a Downer
So, last night I caved, and went to Magic Mike with my daughter. She’s been talking about it for awhile now, and I thought we’d see what all the hype was about. Never in my life have I been in a movie theatre with only chicks… and they were ready to party! I was planning my escape in case it got too out of hand. (You’d have to see it for yourself. I’ve gone to 1 Male Review in my life, and was so appalled with the female sex that I’ve never gone again. Women are ridiculous!)
After millions, okay, maybe not millions, of commercials and previews, the movie starts. They show Channing Tatum’s butt, and the crowd goes wild. That was the most exciting part of the movie.
About 2 hours later, I feel that a little piece of me is gone forever that I can never get back. What a non good movie. It’s not bad, it’s just not good. There was very little dancing. They could have fit all the dancing into maybe a half an hour. There are some very hot guys; Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello (Alcide from True Blood), Alex Pettyfer and Matt Bomer. They don’t show them enough. The story line is cheesy and way to predictable. One problem is, everyone gets out alright. Even with the “drama” part of the story! I’d tell you, but that could ruin the film! (I’m giggling on the inside thinking how you figure out the whole movie in the first half an hour anyway.)
This movie is fine for people 17 and up. The dancing is at a minimum, there is drug use and implied sex. Lots of implied sex. (They are male dancers living that male dancing life.)
The only thing magical about Magic Mike is that $18 and 2 hours of my life are gone forever… POOF!
