A Magic Summer

Summer is upon us ladies, and that can only mean one thing. Time for an overrated flick filled with half-naked, pretty boys and paper-thin plot. That’s right! Magic Mike XXL – the not-quite-expected-nor-needed-but-much-appreciated sequel to 2012’s movie (has it been that long?)- is here!

I’ll admit, the first movie was meh: weak plot about a misguided young guy with abs of steel, who gets caught up with a group of “dancers” with abs of steel, and gets in trouble with drugs, while his sister fights to pull him out of this horrific situation and set him back on the straight and narrow, because, deep down, he’s really a good kid, all while pushing Channing Tatum away (I know. Fiction).

So why a sequel? That’s like asking, why do we drink, throw up and drink more? Because before the realization that you’ve wasted some precious life hours hovering over a toilet bowl, you had a shit-load of fun. And Channing is so pretty, who wouldn’t pay $12 to see him half-dressed, strutting across a 30-foot screen for a couple of hours?

If you’re questioning whether or not to see it, have no fear (and check your pulse). I’ll be sure to provide feedback. I really hope there’s a deep plot with lots of meaning.

Just kidding.


Happy Summer!

  1. Okay, I’ll admit the guys are easy on the eyes, but I saw the first movie and thank God it was on HBO. Ugh. The story line was pitiful. I, unfortunately for the movie studios, will not be going. I might be alone, but that’s okay. I’ll hang out with a good book. 😉 Have fun, and let us know how the movie was.

    • Hi Stacey,

      While I certainly don’t blame you- nothing beats a good book -I am willing to take one for the team. I’ll be happy to let you know what you missed. It’s been a long, cold winter. 🙂
