♪Oh yes it’s Ladies Night , oh what a night…♪
And what a night it was. Tonight several past and present colleagues and I went to see Magic Mike. This movie is loosely based on Channing Tatum’s life as a stripper before he was an actor. The cast has something for everyone, my personal fave is Joe Manganiello (best known for playing Alcide on True Blood) and boy did he get my blood pumping.
Needless to say we enjoyed ourselves immensely and there was much talk about waiting for the DVD to come out so we could see the director’s cut and hopefully some bloopers. The perfect opportunity to have a Girl’s Night In as one person put it. You know the saying “Watch out for the quiet one’s” well we bookstore babes certainly proved that to be true. What a rowdy bunch we are.
The story is pretty much what you would expect and there were no surprises. If you are looking for an evening of staring at some great looking guys in various states of undress and shaking their groove things than this is the movie for you.
I now have new images to enjoy when I hear the songs: Like A Virgin and It’s Raining Men.
After the movie we headed to Tim’s for some refreshments and to keep the party going. Again, not a quiet bunch us bookstore girls. I’m sure the staff there were happy to see us leave.
Tonight is also Coast2Coast Movie Night. On the playlist was Easy A starring Emma Stone.
I enjoyed watching it but am now forced to watch The Breakfast Club due to all the 80’s movie references.
Both are great movies but neither will be bringing me the sweet dreams tonight that magic Mike will. 😉
