One week ago, I turned on a TV for the first time in two months and saw a preview for “Magic Mike.” At first I thought it was a joke, and then I thought it was my birthday, and then I realized no…no, this is real and I am one lucky gal.
I’m going to see it tomorrow with two of my friends. However, after reading Rachelle’s post on A Rich, Full Life In Spite of It, it made me question the reason I am going to see it (for answer, see picture above).
I hope that the ladies choosing to see this movie aren’t doing so as a means of retaliation against menfolk for going to strip clubs and watching porn etc… Instead, I hope women will take this opportunity to enjoy the spectator role that we rarely experience in such a way–whether it be in movies or real life. Besides the fact that Channing Tatum is a super hunk, the movie provides a change from the usual cinematic divide between men and women and I like having the option to watch 5 dudes gyrate and take off their clothes to “It’s Raining Men.” It’s a nice option to have.
I have only one question, and it might be my lack of a man talking, but why is “Magic Mike” not being shown in 3D?
