Chick Flick Friday: Magic Mike

The day has finally arrived. Update those advent calendars. Turn off that alert on your Google calendar. Call you gal pals and reschedule your bachelorette party to tonight! Because tonight, Magic Mike finally hits theaters!

The only thing you really need to know about Magic Mike is that it is a movie about male strippers. But if you’re one of those people who care about things like plot and storytelling, here’s what this man candy flick is actually about.

Channing Tatum plays a stripper with a heart of gold. No, I'm kidding. Tatum is a stripper who really wants to build custom furniture. That's actually what the movie is about! Channing Tatum is a hot stripper, but his real passion lies in building coffee tables. Go figure.

Matthew McConaughey plays the owner of the strip club and according to Channing, Matthew McConaughey will “change your life”.

Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer, and Matt Bomer also star in the racy flick.

But if strippers aren’t your thing, we’ve got a great chick flick for all the God-fearing women in the audience.

People Like Us stars Chris Pine, who discovers on his estranged father’s death that he has an alcoholic sister he never knew about (played by Elizabeth Banks) who he must hand-off $150,000 in cash.

If this sounds like a tearjerker instead of a chick flick, you’re probably right, but I have a hunch it’s going to be one of those cry-fest-girl-flicks like The Notebook or A Walk To Remember.

And before we forget, we have a winner to announce! Earlier this week we asked our Twitter followers to tweet us why they think they are the biggest Katy Perry fan! We’ve named Lilian S. as the biggest Katy Perry fan so she and a friend are going to an exclusive screening of Katy Perry: Part of Me this Monday, July 2!

Congrats Lilian S!
