Magic Mike—Directed by Steven Soderbergh/Starring Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey/screenplay by Reid Carolin/ Rated R/111 mins
Bifocal Review by Ageless1der Barbara Rich and The Other Guy
(B)Well, I wish I could take bake the 111minutes I wasted on Magic Mike. Magic Mike?
It would have been magic if they could disappear! I appreciate a beautiful male body just as much as the next gal. But, after 10 minutes I’m gonna want something else, anything else. This review didn’t take long. I don’t recommend it. I give it half a binocular just for the abs.
(OG) I guess women need stripper movies to make fun of, just like men, but I literally couldn’t justify watching the whole thing. I had to leave the room to check my email and play game apps more than once during the view of this stinker. Thank goodness we saw Magic Mike as a download! I would have felt even worse had I paid full price for a seat. What’s there to say? If you want to see a few scenes with naked male parts dominating the screen and you don’t want to take your chances with a pay-per-view porno, then this might be great for background during a girl’s t.v. watching night, when a glass of wine and conversation are more important than what’s on the screen. Otherwise, don’t expect more than the face (or full-frontal) value and please don’t expect much in the way of story or acting. This one gets only a single monocle from me (That’s one half a binocular).
