3.0 out of 5 stars Love love love me some Channing Tatum...and the dancing gets 10 stars, but..., October 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Magic Mike (Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
This movie is AWFUL. Seriously, just bad. I saw it in the theater AND I pre-ordered the DVD/BluRay/Ultraviolet combo. So why would I want to own a movie I already knew was bad? Can you say Channing Tatum bumping and grinding on the dance floor? Channing Tatum is at his luscious best in this film as far as his dancing and body, but it's like he totally forgot how to act at all (not that he was Oscar material before this anyway). The dancing in this movie is excellent and SO.HOT. and Matthew McConaughey is awesome when he's used for comic relief (when it gets serious even the great McConaughey is pretty bad). The plot and even most of the acting in this movie is just downright pitiful.

Would I own the movie? YEP, I DO. Would I watch the movie more than once? Yep, I have. Would I say it's cinematic magic worthy of an Oscar? NO WAY. Do I recommend this movie to pretty much all women who might kind of like the look of Channing Tatum? Absolutely. Do I recommend this movie if you are looking for a decent plot and good acting? No, no, I don't, please stay far away from this movie if that is what you are looking for!

The dancing and serious babe factor of this movie gets 10 stars, everything else gets -7...makes this one an even 3 stars for me.

The movie is the worst as far as acting and story line, but the Blu-ray has the option of "Dance Scenes" only, and that is all that I care about, watching Channing Tatum dance was worth my while, he is a splendid specimen of a man so who cares about the acting, I have enough movies of him acting his heart out. THIS IS A DANCING movie and him showing that incredible body. So of course I OWN IT. :)

what is ultraviolet digital copy? Will it play on any DVD player & do I have to subscribe to anything? I don't intend to download it.

I've seen this on HBO now 3 nights in a row and I totally agree, if you want storyline and acting go the other direction if you want hot male dancing tune in. I'm ordering my copy because of the blue ray having just the dance scenes, Thanks Ana I was unaware of that!

I'm a fairly new Channing Tatum fan--and I'm 67!!! From what you write, this is a movie I want! Thanks for the helpful review!

I totally agree with your review-the dancing was amazing, the plot line and acting-not so much!! Channing just seems to have so much personality and charm though, love him :)
