While the movie promises plenty of man candy and overt sexual puns, we’re more than a little surprised at how they’ve snuck a heartfelt message into a movie about male strippers. Given the subject matter, it seemed the movie would be a bit of a spoof. It appears the underlying message of the film is one of self-discovery and romance.
Channing Tatum does not disappoint in the title role. He shows off his best assets — beyond his hot body and amazing dance moves — by putting his acting chops on display. He’s a charming bad boy, yet also sensitive.
Best line? “The law says you can look but you can’t touch,” Matthew McConaughey says to a worked up crowd of ladies. “But I see a lot of lawbreakers.”
If enjoying this is a crime, lock us up and throw away the key!
The movie is said to be loosely based on Channing’s life — he has talked about his stripper past before. We can only hope his future keeps him taking it off for the camera!
