Magic Mike
Director: Steven Soderbergh
Starring: Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, and Oliva Munn (Full cast & crew HERE

A male stripper teaches a younger performer how to party, pick up women, and make easy money.

Aaah. I finally got a chance to watch Magic Mike! With my mother no less! You see, my mom has a thing for talking during a movie. She'll point out little facts (which I don't mind, I'm used to it) But for this movie? Oh-My-Lanta! If you've seen the trailer for this movie when Magic Mike (Channing Tatum) & The Kid, Adam(Alex Pettyfer), are dressed as cops and are at a sorority house then you'll know what I'm talking about. 

Mom: That's exactly how my bachelorette party was.
Me: *turns to mom* WHAT?
Mom: Yeah, just like that. 
Me: *facepalm* oh laaaawd

So this continues throughout the movie. You know when Magic Mike performs to Genuine's "My Pony"? Yeah...

*beginning of routine*
Mom: He can dance
Me: Yeah, mom. 

*Tatum loses shirt*
Mom: He can really dance 
Me: *looks at mom through corner of eye* uh huh

*Tatum dry humping the floor*
Mom: Oh, he's good! He can dance.
Me: *looks left and right for escape route* uh.. yeah, mom.

All theatrics aside, this movie was... okay. Definitely watched it for the sezzy half naked hunks who can have sex with the air and leave women panting and throwing dollar bills like it's nothing! *waves a bunch of dollar bills in hand* come to mama! haha. The storyline was...boring and I didn't find myself entertained. Though, the dancing scenes made up for it. Channing Tatum, as always, I thought did a great job. I love him as an actor and the man can DANCE. Alex Pettyfer? Ahhh. I wasn't too thrilled about his character. There's always a climax in a movie and the climax point for this movie was so anti-climax. >.< I didn't like the actress that played Brooke, Adams (Alex Pettyfer) older sister. I just wasn't SOLD. I thought her facial expressions were rivaling that of Kristen Stewarts'. 

Ditching the storyline, I want to point out a few of my favorites in this movie ^_^

Channing Tatum - Magic Mike 
 Wheeew *fanning self* Yes, yes and HELL YES! That's all I gotta say. ;)

Joe Manganiello - Big Dick Richie

Gosh. This man is gorgeous and frkn' sezzy! Though he had few lines, I didn't mind ogling his sezzy ass. 

The other characters I could care less about. They didn't really "pop" to me. Matt Bomer CANNOT dance! lol. He is cute though ;) 

Overall, this movie was okay. Not so great of a storyline, but the half naked men is what kept me watching ;) If you're watching this for that alone, just use the flash-forward button. This movie is only getting 3 Movie Reels because of the sezzy men. If it weren't for them, this movie would have gotten a 1 - 2 Movie Reels.
