Magic Mike – Movie Review & Giveaway

by MARIA on October 21, 2012

Magic Mike is a movie about male strippers. And naked things.

Male strippers and nakedness.

I think that pretty much sums it up.

*

To be fair, Magic Mike is played by Channing Tatum (PERFECTLY cast I might add – yes, he was a stripper in his former life and he can dance and you want to see his naked things). The movie, directed by Steven Soderbergh, is about Mike’s relationship with Adam (Alex Pettyfer), whom he introduces to stripping.

Reasons to Watch:

Despite thinking that my DVD might be broken since it took 20 minutes to get to the stripping, there are many nude man parts in this flick. If naked men rock your socks, this is the movie for you.

Also, Channing Tatum. Is. Just. Delightful.

On the negative side, I’m not a huge fan of Matthew McConaughey – he irritates me to no end so I tried to shut him out every time he was on the screen. Also, the story was kind of weak/boring, but then again let’s be honest, this movie is about stripping and hot dudes. Regardless, it is the perfect flick to watch with all your girlfriends – because of the nakedness. Watching with your best girlies will guarantee the laughs and a good time. Don’t watch with your husband – most men don’t have a sense of humour when it comes to dudes that are clearly hotter than they are.  Protect their egos and watch it without them.

Magic Mike is out on DVD Tuesday, October 23, 2012. The Blu-Ray combo pack has special features to watch including, extended dance scenes (ie. dirtier than the regular amount of movie theatre dirty), a dance play mode that allows you to play all the dance sequences back to back, and some backstage time with Channing Tatum who shares some how to stripper details (perhaps you’re in the market for a new career).

My funny stripper story: For my friend’s stagette before her wedding, we took her to a Playgirl centerfold finalist event where the finalists were stripping. She got very carried away with her cheering for the strippers. The staff noticed her and asked her to be in a Playgirl promotional video. She agreed and is in a Playgirl video for the event tour! Too funny!

The only time I went to see strippers they were female. I ended up consoling one of them in the bathroom for about an hour because her boyfriend had broken up with her. About a week later my husband and I ran into her at the mall and she stopped to chat for a bit. When I told my husband how I knew her he said only I could go to a strip club and come out with a new friend.

Way back when, I worked in retail while going to university – one night my colleagues and I were going out for a girls’ night, to a male strip club. Needless to say, the male store manager was lurking around the employee entrance the next mornign to see our reaction – my only comment – “ya seen one, ya seen them all!” as a strode past him.

I have a funny one.
I am a girl, and I have mostly guy friends. When one of my best friends turned 18, a long time ago, he wanted to go to the strip club. So, me being his bff was of course invited. I was all, like why not?
So I went.
I entered the place, and all the girls were topless. I was so shy to look at them.
All my guy friends in the group went to get dances, and I was left alone at the table.
One really beautiful girl, came to me and whispered in my ear: is this your first time here? And I said, yes. She replied: I can tell. and walked away. haha

The only stripper story I have is that my friend and I used to go and see male strippers almost every weekend when we were in our early 20′s…being a regular at a male strip bar is really nothing to brag about…but it was exciting (and kind of hilarious!)

My friends took me to a male strip joint for my 18th birthday, and one of the strippers slipped me his phone number. This was all sorts of confusing for my 18 year old self, especially given the fact that his name was “Baby Rambo”!
