This Weekend, Magic Happened

This weekend, Magic (Mike) happened.

For any and all of you that are taking the time to discuss the movie’s plot – just stop.

I don’t believe that anyone involved with Magic Mike intended on reaching for the cinematic stars – and it was beautiful.

On Sunday, I geared up with Jamie, Emily and Sarah J and got to the theatre 40 minutes before show time. I was exhausted from a whirlwind weekend, but I managed to persevere and make it to the 5:40 showing of Magic Mike.

Worth it. 

As we waited outside in the theatre lobby, a large crowed of women formed. The area was all abuzz of conversation like:

“I hear there’s full frontal nudity. Like, guy full frontal nudity.”

“I’ve been to see the movie three times in three days.”

“I’m most excited to see the choreography in the film.” (Sike. No one said that. Ever.)

The only thing interrupting this collective conversation was a male manager who came out and asked all 40 of us: “Is everyone here for Magic Mike?”

No one was amused by that.

We were like hungry wolves being kept from our dinner.

Yeah, dude. My 50 Shades book club and I are here to see Magic Mike. Get out of our way.

In the end, it was everything I expected it to be. I thank the heavens for the gifts that are Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey – and I applaud those men for not taking themselves too seriously. With all the half naked women in the media today, I think it’s about damn time a movie like this was made for us ladies – can I get a AMEN?! ;)

    AMEN! I’m going again with Megan on Thursday. Is this wrong? No!

  2. Amen lady – Amen. I saw it yesterday, probably far too early in the morning that should be allowed. It was so so beautiful. Emphasis on the “so”. I learned yesterday that Channing Tatum actually used to be in the “industry”, which just makes me so happy. I actually reallydid like one of the choreographed scenes – you know the dance he did when he was “keeping it fresh”? Yeeeahhhh.

  3. haha! “My 50 Shades book club and I are here to see Magic Mike. Get out of our way.”

    Hilarious. I can’t wait to see this moving. Although I’ll probably wait until it comes out to DVD. I’m a huge fan of joe manganiello from true blood <3

  4. BAHAHAHAHAHA. One of my all time favorite blogging lines ever:

    You never cease to humor me.

    Is this true?

    All I want to know. The End.

    • Emily says:

      It’s true…sort of. It’s slightly blurred out, is it man junk, is it not? but we all know what it really is!

    • Colleen says:

      Not really. It t’was a rumor. There’s one part where you’re like “Oh my gosh! Is that..? Ah!” At least that’s what everyone in the theatre did hahah

  6. AMEN – And I too am glad that the ladies are getting a little eye candy for once!

  7. Tara says:

    AMEN!!!!!! May I quote you in my article?

  8. My husband said yesterday how sexist a movie like this is, and boy did he get a piece of my mind. For all the tons of movies that have naked women in them, I think it’s about time there’s one with hot male strippers haha AMEN!

  9. ahhhhh i cant wait to see it :) :)

  10. haha YES it was marvelous.
    During the movie some rude lady had an outburst and was liek “CHANNING! We dont care about your furniture… take your clothes off!” and im not ashamed to say that lady was me!

  11. Lindsay says:

    I think I ask for all of us ladies who haven’t seen it…..So IS there full frontal?!

  12. Seriously, Channing Tatum. He’s just so beautiful. The only thing that could’ve made this movie better would be the addition of Ryan Gosling…

    Best male stripper movie EVER! ;) Although, I did keep finding myself getting distracted by the lady, 2 rows in front of me, who had brought her husband and 2 young daughters (like 3 and 4 years old) Who does that??? If you can’t find a sitter than you should probably wait until it comes out on DVD.
