(Not so) Magic Mike

I am a little embarassed to admit it, but against my better judgement I went to see Magic Mike yesterday.  It wasn't on the top of my list of movies to see.  In fact, it didn't even make the cut, but since I enjoy the whole movie going experience I decided to give it a shot when a friend asked if I wanted to see it. 
Now I know most people (all people) are not watching this movie for it's storyline, rather then the onscreen eye candy.  While the men in this movie are definately hot, the whole male revue thing just doesn't do it for me.  I thought I would at least be able to enjoy the potential love story in the movie.  Nope, I was wrong!  The movie relies solely on it's looks. Even the budding romanance between Mike and the Kristen Stewart look a like was a disappointment.
The 50 Shades of Gray bookclub in the audience seemed to enjoy the film. Although, I felt like I was crashing a mothers group's girls night out.    While Matthew McConaughey was pretty funny, I would have preferred spending my $20 on that teddy bear movie.

  1. I know this post is from months ago, but I have to agree--this movie was HORRIBLE! I didn't go expecting to get some elaborate plot, but this one was even lower than my low expectations. It was so bad that the hot guys didn't even really make it any better for me.
