I DNF’d It After Twenty Minutes.

Those of you who know me know I am a big Channing Tatum fan.  Big as in huge.  As in enormous.  As in those extra eight inches, uh, I mean those extra four inches huge erect edifice big huge.

How big?  This big!

How big? This big!

But man oh man I DNF’d Magic Mike after twenty excruciating minutes of embarrassment.  It’s awfulness embarrassed me – not personally, as in I wasn’t personally embarrassed for watching, or attempting to watch the movie, but because it was sooooo piss-poor terrible.   Cringe-worthy.  Came very close to grossing me out.


What story?

We got naked male butts, we don’t need no stinkin’ story!

Uh, yeah, sorry honey, you do need a story.

A butt out of context, no matter how stacked, is just a butt.

A butt.

A butt.

    I’ve yet to watch the movie. Sorry you had to DNF it. :)

    I knew this one was going to be a stinker. I saw bad reviews for it, and everyone who saw it was disappointed.

    I forced Natty and hubby to watch PITCH PERFECT and they BOTH loved it! Even hubs! And Natty already downloaded all the music. :)

  3. I haven’t seen it and now I don’t have to. Thanks for the review. Love the quote, out of context, a butt is just a butt.

  4. You’re welcome, Stephanie. Very disappointing! Butts notwithstanding.

  5. Total stinker, Pens. Shockingly awful. I gotta watch Pitch Perfect.

  6. Don’t waste your time, Amber. Sucks. So sad cuz I love Channing Tatum.

  7. I’d never had much interest in this, and now I’m glad I won’t be disappointed LOL. I’m soooo glad we agree that nudity and gratuitous sex doesn’t make up for no story. these things are spices to a story, not a substitute.

  8. I agree 100% Ciara. Absolutely.

    Hmm, won’t be on my must see list. Am hearing good things about Silver Lining though.

  10. How true this is.
    However–and be honest–how many times will you look at the picture again? No, not the one of Jimmy Stewart, the one of the bare butt. You know: the “butt out of context is just a butt” one.
    Sometimes eye candy and buttered popcorn trump story line, and Hollywood counts on that. Do you know how many females went to see this…and bought/rented the DVDs?
    I didn’t, and thanks to your review, I won’t bother now. But the picture is nice…not the kind of on-your-Christmas-card nice. The other kind of nice…

  11. Oh Sandra, I can’t wait to see Silver Linings! And I’m not a Bradley Cooper fan.

  12. You know Marylin, because the character was so one-dimensional and in some ways, reprehensible, it wasn’t even eye candy. Coming in the very very beginning it was more for shock effect. Shocking! I mean shocking that it wasn’t interesting!

  13. Yeah I think people watched it for the eye candy..

  14. I think so too, Savannah. But in 20 minutes the only appealing character was the guy who plays Alcide in True Blood. Joe Whatshisame. By appealing I mean he was somewhat interesting and likable.
