Movie Review: Magic Mike

Saturday night a girlfriend and I went to see Magic Mike.  I was caught somewhere between really wanting to see it, and being a little skeptical.  Don't get me wrong, Chan.ning Tatum makes for some good eye candy, but the more movies I see him in, the more I think he's not that great of an actor.  So walking into the theater, I wasn't sure what to expect. 

But I have to say, it ended up being a really good movie.  It was so much fun.  Seeing it on the big screen made me feel like I was in the middle of a male strip club (with hot strippers, not the nasty greasy ones) with my girlfriends. 

Channing's acting didn't annoy me so much in this movie as it has in others.  And the dancing?  Oh boy, the dancing (and stripping) was out of this world.  I told Jeff he needs to watch it and take some notes on how to girate his hips like that, haha! 

So yeah, if you're looking for a silly good time, I highly recommend it.

In the words of Camp.bell's soup, it was "mmm mmm good." 


  1. ohhh, my sis and I have been talking about going for a few weeks now, if she can get her hubby to watch the kids! HA! I am really excited to see Joe M (the tall dark drink of water)!

  2. Channing tatum is so hot I don't care if he can't act haha I recently saw that cheesy movie with him and Rachel madams and he could have said or done anything and I still would have loved him!! Definitely will have to check this movie out!!

  3. I am so planning on going with my bestie to this. Mr McConaughey, don't mind if I do!

  4. my friend and i were just talking about this movie yesterday. i didn't realize it wasn't a comedy and now i really want to see it! i never mind channing tatum's acting but maybe it's bc he is just that beautiful. and joe m(however you spell it) YUM! lol
    i'm so glad you had a good time. been thinking about you and hoping you're doing well, jenny!
    happy fourth to you and your family!
