Magic Mike

To the surprise of, well, no one, I went to see Magic Mike this weekend - as soon as I possibly could after it opened.
The problem with looking forward to a movie for so long is that you're bound to be disappointed and, sadly, I kind of was. Now, don't get me wrong - the guys looked AWESOME...I just wanted to see a little bit more of them.
Get your mind out of the gutter! Not in THAT way - I seriously wanted to see more dancing. They kept cutting off their acts just as they got good. And I really wanted to see more Joe. A LOT more Joe. He was barely in it at all. That boy got the shaft!
And, I know this is terrible, but I can't look at Matt Bomer without thinking he's not on my team. It shouldn't affect the way I'm attracted to him (because, come on, I'm inherently drawn to gay men anyway), but it kind of did. Is that horrible? 
The two main girls in it totally bugged me - Olivia Munn always bugs me and Cody Horn was AWFUL. She can't act her way out of a paper bag. I did enjoy the relationship she had with Channing, though. It was sweet.
On the plus side, the guys looked AMAZING - have I mentioned that? At the beginning I could hardly sit still in my seat. But by the end, I was kind of bored and wondering what the storyline really was (not that it needed one...maybe just more dancing).
Let's just look at Channing some more. *lick* Man, his wife is lucky. That is all.
