The Chick Flick

2012-07-17 14:00
Last night the Channel24 girls went out for an evening of unadulterated fun.

Our girls' night included a few good looking men who took their clothes off. We saw a few male dance 'revues' - and we didn't even have to stuff dollar bills in their G-strings for the privilege.

We previewed the new stripper movie titled Magic Mike.

If you're not familiar with it, it's time you saw the trailer and prepared yourself for the uncovered hotness of Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer and Matthew McConaughey.

But it was more than just a gaggle of girls going to perv over hot men. We promise - we're not that shallow. It's about The Chick Flick; an integral part of girls' night; a moment to collectively sigh over something other than our own troubles.

Chick Flicks get such a bad rap sometimes, and granted, there are many movies which do the genre a disservice. But don't write them off completely - at least not until you've seen this one.

Magic Mike isn't what we thought it would be - and we imagine you'll feel the same. Watch out for our Magic Mike review closer to the end of the week.

The movie inspired our Movies Editor Shaheema Barodien to come up with a list of the 13 best stripper movies. Because no one can resist a stripper with a heart (or a thong) of gold. See the gallery here.
