This is a massive win for all involved, bringing Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane serious film-making clout, further confirming that Mark Wahlberg is an actual 'put butts in the seats' movie star and giving Universal something to laugh about.
While most people are waiting for Spiderman or The Dark Knight Rises, the one film I've been thinking about is Channing Tatum and Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike. I want Tatum to walk away a champion by making a personal film.
If a man really moved like a male stripper in bed we'd need chiropractic care. That's if he wanted to continue amid the laughter.
If you ever become a star in Hollywood, and write about your pre-show biz life, be prepared--anybody you ever worked with, or passed on the street, will claim your story as their story.
"You've been scooped, buddy." These were the words of Armand, the man who answered the phone at an establishment named HunkOMania. I'm not much of a strip club aficionado, and my knowledge of male dancers is pretty much limited to one scene in Mr. Mom and the SNL Chippendales sketch starring Patrick Swayze and Chris Farley.
How refreshing to see men disrobe in a movie instead of women. Oh, there are a few semi-naked women, but Magic Mike celebrates the male anatomy.
We "chicks" have munched our popcorn while romantic comedies became just comedies. So, ladies, we have a mandate. We each have to buy a ticket to Magic Mike. The movie about the male stripper with that guy from The Vow.
Everybody involved with "Magic Mike" is at pains to insist it is not a male version of "Showgirls." It's intentionally funny.
It's the rumor that makes the rounds every summer. That Comic-Con is soon going to abandon San Diego for some other convention-friendly city like Las ...
Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum make a hilarious crime fighting duo in 21 Jump Street, the movie based on the Johnny Depp TV series of the 1980's
While Hill, writer Michael Bacall and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller want to spoof cop procedurals, they also want to make an actual cop-action film. That blend of comedy and action is a tough one, almost as tough as romantic comedy.
Tatum is sincere and loving as Leo but he is also a sort of clunky actor. For some this just adds to his charm, while for others it is off-setting. He has a boyish charm and you can certainly see why Paige was attracted to Leo.
I get the sense that Jason Sudeikis is just in his own little world on the show these days. Like in a, "Hey, Jason, after Romney, you've got nothing until 'Bongo's Clown Room.' Do you want to be in any other sketches?" "Nah, I'm good," kind of way.
"SNL" decided to really focus on Tatum's beefcake status. Put it this way: I saw Channing Tatum with his shirt off not one, not two, but three times. We get it: Channing Tatum is a good-looking guy.
Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh's new film, the spy thriller Haywire, excites with lots of great action sequences that overwhelm an often confusing storyline.
