The reviews are in, and the results are that you don’t see any shirtless Channing Tatum in Magic Mike XXL until the last 5 minutes of the movie.
So does that mean the movie is slacking? Not exactly. Variety claims that it’s sort of like watching Jaws. You barely see the shark, but when you do, it’s epic.
Celebrity A-listers include Channing and Joe Manganiello, who are joined by Jada Pinkett Smith,
Childish Gambino Donald Glover, and even Michael Strahan (which in itself should be pretty hilarious).
Andie MacDowell also plays a divorcee and also Manganiello’s love interest, who, to put it in PC terms, “can and wants to handle him, and we mean ALL of him.”
The movie hit theaters today, so we will see how the XXL does at the box office in comparison to it’s alma matter.
