Spoiler alert Channing Tatum does not save the world in his new movie, Magic Mike. Look, he doesn’t even save puppies. This movie is all about hot men walking around half naked and a few times, completely naked. This is 100% a chick flick.
Men do not want to see this movie. Please, puhleeze, do not make your man go with you to see this movie. Any woman who has had a man in her life longer than 5 hours knows or should know that men are WAY more confident than most women. In their mind, they still have their best body ever. Even if that body was 20 years ago when they were in college. He still sees that six pack even if it’s now leaning more towards a keg. Even if your man IS Channing Tatum, he doesn’t want to see this movie. It does no one any good. He starts to feel inadequate and you start to compare him to actors who spent months with personal trainers to get that rock hard body. I was fortunate enough to go out with a few girlfriends to see this movie and a few women felt the need to take their guy with them. One poor guy actually got up and walked out. Do not take him, he will be miserable and so will you. Someday he will make you pay for it and trust me spending an entire day at a gun show or car show will be along their lines of payback. So don’t do it. Leave him at home with the kids. Go out with a few girlfriends, have a drink, and then hit the theater. You husband will thank you and after two hours of watching all those gorgeous guys, you may want to thank him.
