Sunday's Brunch: The Magic Mike experience
Months ago, when Pearl and I heard about the movie Magic Mike we both squealed; "Girl's night!" That's when we decided to go together. The date was set, the venue chosen and made it in to a a whole day. Going on a girls day out with Pearl means lots of talking, lots of laughing and...well, lots of everything. We met late in the morning and within an hour we were already in the first shoe store. It was shoe porn gallore and I almost cried when various shoes were just a few millimeters to big which made my heels slip in it.
We shopped till we dropped, ate lunch, shopped some more, had dinner and then the moment arrived where we went to the cinema for our Magic Mike experience. Pearl found this awesome cinema where she booked us lounge seats.
On our walk to the room we got treated to various cardboard images of movies currently available in the cinema. I can cross my heart when I tell you I didn't have on drop of alcohol in my body when Pearl shot these pics.
Do you think if I flash the batman symbol in to the night The Dark Knight will come and go Magic Mike on me? A girl can dream, right ;)
I is a kick ass babe and my inner Braveheart got the better of me!
Who doesn't want to make funny faces looking at these characters? ;)
Finally we got up to the loge with our spacious seats, our complementary sparkly wine and nuts. We opened the menu and since they didn't have Margarita *gasp* I ordered a Long Island cocktail and some chips and chocolate. Pearl had a fab Tequila Sunrise and before we knew it Magic Mike commenced.
The first twenty minutes were full of squees. OMG, did Channing Tatem just woke up after a wicked night with a threeway? Yes, he did! OMG, there's Joe Mangello *hawt*. OMG, is that Adam Rodriguez from CSI Miami? Then as two guys were in a dialogue all I could see was...is that a peen pomp?! I almost cleaned my glasses. OMG, that's a peen pomp! I was grinning from ear to ear. Then it was YAY the first stripper scene....my eyes were going from left to right, the beefcake was all over the place and my heart rate was increasing rapidly. I wish I had dollar bills because girl instinct made me want to slip them some ;)
The moment where Adam Rodriguez shakes his buns...Pearl and I agreed, we will never look at CSI Miami the same. Then ‘The Kid’ lost his stripper virginity on 'Like A Virgin' and I laughed so much during that scene. After that...yeah, I lived from stripper scene to stripper scene. The romance was a dud. The leading lady is getting a razzie from me, the whole drugs storyline...better said, every storyline was full of fail. And then when Channing Tatum was crying his ever loving heart out on his drive to his emotion deprived lady, knocked on her door, had some of the worst dialogues evah, it was Pearl who whispered to me, and I’m paraphrasing a bit here; "If this is a truly bad movie, it ends here." She hadn't even finished saying it or the end credits were flashing on the big screen. We looked at each other and burst in to a fit of giggles. OMG...save the scrumptious beefcake - did Joe Mangello even say more than five sentences in the whole movie? And Channing Tatem doing his slick, sexy body language on stage, the story was just sooooooo bad! But I'm sure it will become a classic just for the "artsy dance scenes"!
When, Pearl and I went for our post movie drink we decided even WE could write a better script!
Personally I would go for the stripper scenes that includes; navy seals – firemen – policemen –. You can’t ignore the classics ;)
A wicked BDSM enactment – will there be a dry seat in the house?
I personally also vote for a highlander scene that ends with them lifting the skirts to the ladies upon which of course the room goes dark. Damn it, such teases!!
Perhaps you all can come up with a few more scenes too. The underlying relationships between the strippers will be a focus. There will be some dialogues, some drama behind the curtains but no “Kristen Stewart look-a-like moody sour puss” <<- a combo of what I and Pearl thought of Olivia Munn. It often felt as though she had a permanent PMS look on her face! I vote for lots of sexay body language on the stage – that should be the focus! What do you think?
