Oh man, I loved it! But I saw it in theatres as a huge, tipsy girls night out (25 of us!) so it was like we were really at a strip club with Channing Tatum… Haha. I don’t think I would have liked it as much if I didn’t see it under those circumstances.

When I saw it, I was expecting a fun male stripper movie. My mom called me up and she was all, “oh my god, let’s go stare at Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum!!!” and then we ended up sitting there kind of wondering what we were watching.

All in all, I thought it was okay, kind of slow. I may have liked it more if I knew what I was getting into and didn’t have my “Show me some abs!” mentality. Like when I took my brother to see 50/50 with me and he thought it was supposed to be a full-on comedy, instead he was sitting there, crying, asking me “What the hell is this? Tears? Wtf kind of movie am I watching? Emotions? What?? This isn’t like Knocked Up at all!!”

It can kill a movie when the overall tone is entirely different than expected.

@hiroshymatetrastar:  Hah I know! Totally agree. I thought it was going to be this funny, sexy movie and instead it was just awful.

@hiroshymatetrastar:  The Full Monty was exactly the kind of movie I thought it would be. I actually didn’t even watch the whole thing. My friend and I turned it off. Well, first we muted it and made up our own dialogue and then we stopped watching.

I forgot all about the penis pump! Ahh, what a weird movie. I’m sad to say that we went out of our way to wake up early and pay to see it in theatres. Should’ve just waited.

IMO not enough stripping and dancing and too much “plot” (if you can even call it that).  I wouldn’t buy it but I’d definitely rent it from redbox and just repeat the dancing scenes because what little they showed was HOTTTTTT.  Other than then….mehhh

I like it too! I thought it was funny, didn’t expect it to be nominated for any awards though.

I paid full price at the theater to see that steaming pile of crap.  I was sooooo mad.
