So I went to see Magic Mike XXL last night with Melissa, Cynthia, and Traci from The Social. We went to one of those theatres that has bar service. Like they take your drinks and food order in your seats (which are wider and reclining). I’m telling you this to get to the part where we shared deep fried pickles, chicken tenders, burgers, and oh yeah, two bottles of wine – an important detail as it probably had to do with how much fun I had. But I’ve been hearing the same from many of you - what a good time you had at XXL.
Click here to see Sarah’s review of the movie from earlier this week. As usual, she’s right. And the only points I have to add, for those of you who’ve not seen it yet, are that you need to be warned about the first 20 or so minutes because it makes you think that they might try to tell an actual story here and develop characters which, I assure you, does not happen, thanks God, and that I think it’s the funniest movie I’ve seen all year. I was near hysterical.
Also I’d like to take a moment here to agree with Sarah that Amber Heard is the worst. Magic Mike XXL is the only movie that most of us can name featuring Amber Heard. And after seeing Amber Heard in XXL, you’ll never want to see Amber Heard in another movie ever again. Remember in the first Magic Mike how all of you hated Cody Horn? Cody Horn was better than Amber Heard! I dried up every time she came on screen. There is nothing – no spark, no charisma, no intrigue, no “it”. Johnny Depp always had a good feel for the “it” in his partners. We saw it in Winona and Kate Moss and in Vanessa Paradis. I’m just saying, if that’s a club, Amber Heard should not be given membership. Like, I’d rather watch Jessica Biel than Amber Heard.
