Magic Mike

Magic Mike is to movies what Harlequin romance novels are to novels. It’s mostly empty plot and gratuitous…well in the case of the movie, hineys. With mostly dubious acting talent (a hot body seems to be the primary pre-requisite), Magic Mike is an hour and a half of rear-end giggling, gyrating eye candy for the female audience. With a cast that includes Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer and of course, Matthew McConaughey – how did they get him to keep his clothes on while playing that bongo by the way? – there should be something for everyone.

If you can ignore the giggling teenage girls that are never more than a row away, it’s a good laugh and a decent choice for date night. For women the reasoning for seeing the movie is obvious, but for you men, let me lay it out there. First of all, you owe us for all the crappy war/comic/action or just plain crap we’ve had to watch with you. Secondly, these guys can move! Take a lesson from that. We don’t expect you to turn into Chip n Dale dancers or anything, but next time we’re out at a wedding or a party, remember, the guys with the most girls are the ones on the floor. If you can move there, you can move…elsewhere.


And that’s my short 2¢ for today.

  1. I’m planning to write a literature blog, and I want to get as much readers as possible, even those who don’t like books much, to be able to encourage them to read. Suggestions? No bashing please!.

    • Suggestions? Read the books that are being buzzed about either on best seller lists or because they’re being made into movies etc, make sure you optimize your search strings when you publish so that people will get to your posting and read up on SEO techniques. Other than that I’d say don’t get discouraged if you’re not getting many visitors at first; it takes time for word of mouth to get moving and it takes practice (on your part) to write what people want to read. And finally, a thick skin. Occasionally you’ll get people that say nasty things just because they can do so without repercussions; ignore them.
