I went into this one hoping for a similar movie to the ”Full monty” a bunch of likeable guys down on their luck who revert to stripping to make end’s meet,well magic Mike was more about obnoxious brain-dead dudes with no personality or charisma.
Now before I get the jealous tag thrown at me,I must admit I would trade bodies with any of the dancers in this movie,so I suppose you could say I was envious of their fatless bodies and toned abs,who wouldn’t be ….
There was a movie named Showgirls that came out in 1995,the story was just weird but there was a lot of naked ladies and a lot of sensual dancing,Magic Mike is exactly the same but for women.
Channing Tatum can not act,I have always suspected so but this movie was the final nail in the coffin,he seems to have been possessed by a cliché black pimp in this movie,the only thing that was missing was a cane.
Big problem with this film ? The Full monty made fun of itself,it explored the funny side of stripping,magic Mike doesn’t really do this,Matthew McConaughey brings some laughter but it is not often enough,so what are you left with ?
A bunch of wankers dancing around in no clothes with a side story about fake hope and love.
