Magic Mike (2012)

Magic Mike (2012) – 1 Out of 5 Graves

Sometimes you have to do things in a relationship you wouldn’t otherwise do. It was late, my wife wanted to watch a movie, and I’d had a few beers. She saw Magic Mike on the screen and said we should rent it.

There wasn’t really anything else on, and it was “Date Night” so I figured I’d be a good husband and rent it.

It’s not even that horrible of a movie, it’s just kinda blah. I expected a lot of hot dudes and dancing, but it was really a poorly written love story that didn’t really make any sense. The thirty year old stripper falls for the girl who wants nothing to do with him while banging several other girls, then gives it all up because he realizes he wants something else out of life.

That is the short version of the story. It just didn’t really make any sense to me. They didn’t really do a good job of explaining why he did what he did, he just kinda changed three quarters of the way through the movie.

Overall it was watchable, I just felt like it could have been done better and more honestly in regards to how male strippers would be in real life.

If you’re a male stripper let me know if I’m way off the mark here.
