As president of the Unofficial Magic Mike Fan Club™, I was all set to hate this new Honest Trailer for Magic Mike. In a week where #lovewins, the last thing I need is some jerk telling me my love for “Ladies Of Tampa” is wrong.
As luck would have it, I can’t argue with much of this:
“A movie that puts guys in the uncomfortable position of wanting to trade lives with a stripper, and girls in the uncomfortable position of wanting a man who can barely finish a sentence.”
True story: that scene was the moment I went from loving Channing Tatum sarcastically to thinking, “you know, this guy might actually be able to act.”
C-Tates may never win Best Actor, but no one can deny that “Charming Mumbly Guy” is right in his wheelhouse. For me, a dealbreaker is a girl who can’t understand why I love Magic Mike. Love means never having to say you’re sorry for loving Magic Mike.
