Last night the girls and I went to see Magic Mike. I’m not a fan of Matthew McConaughy but I probably would have seen anything that didn’t involve a talking animal. The move was more than just a bunch of dancing guys. It had some semblance of a plot.
That was the problem.
Honestly, it would have been a lot better if they cut all the scenes that didn’t involve Channing Tatum dancing. Artistically speaking of course.
No one in the audience wanted to see people doing drugs, naked women, 3-ways, a medical assistant, a psychiatrist, roof tiles, or a hurricane. Just sayin’. I’m pretty sure the 12-year-old girl who literally got dragged out of the theater by her mother who came to find her, didn’t. I’m sure she was just there studying new dance moves for her high school cheer team.
A friend of mine suggested maybe the move who have been better in 3D. After all, aren’t all the best movies shooting things at you these days?
I’m all about advancing the arts. No really. I buy Crayola products all the time.
If you live under a rock and haven’t heard of Magic Mike then I don’t recommend you take your significant other. It’s not a date night kind of thing. Although there is something in it for everyone at some point. But again, naked women in a movie are so 2011. It’s a good night out with the girls. It’s like going to a male revue only it doesn’t cost $50 in singles.
And take my word for it – Channing Tatum is the next big thing.
