  1. This looks effin' awful. I can't believe Soderbergh made this crap.

    You gotta be hard up for some male flesh if you're excited about this.

  2. That trailer is horrendous. I hope that doesn't represent the actual movie.

  6. Looks fun to me. I didn't realize it would be a romantic comedy though. And I really wonder what the heck the plot is with the other strippers. It'd be such a waste of talent, ahem, if they're only background dancers.

  7. So Tatum plays a dumb stripper? Gotta say this sounds about a boring as going on a date with one.

  8. If the movie follows the 80s TV movie with Gregory "Gonzo" Harrison exactly AND IT WILL, there will be a frumpy housewife who falls in love with him. I believe it was "Mary Hartman Mary Hartman" Louise Lasser.

  10. I hope it's better then the trailer. Wanted it the story more focused on the guys. Looks like a TV show.

  11. Looking at the trailer, the flick is a rom-com, with a bad script and acting. Congrats.

  12. Dumb stripper? Many of these men have multiple sugar daddies/sugar mommas that pay their bills. Where are the dumb ones?

  13. OMG - where is Bomer, Joe, Adam? I think we are getting the shaft and not in a good way! I heard that the blond woman that can't act is the daughter of the president of Warner Brothers who is releasing the film. Go figure this has become a sad romcom.

  14. People actually had hopes for this movie? Tee hee.

  15. For a site that goes on so much about how we should be treated as if we're more than our sexuality there sure is a lot of inexplicable coverage of a movie that's dull aside from a handful of guys with no shirts.

  16. Channing Tatum has one of those bodies where sometimes he can look really hot - and sometimes kind of chunky!

  17. Channing Tatum is very attractive, but the attention this movie is getting seems really excessive.

  18. Yep, it's Showgirl's Part Deux...

  20. It could be good. It could be bad. Difficult to tell from the trailer. Will wait for it to come out on DVD though.

  21. I suspect there was some panic about the absolutely insane gay interest in the film and fear that it might be seen as a niche "gay interest" film, even without actual gay content. I also think that Hollywood is still as uncomfortable today marketing male flesh as they have always been. Remember, Soderbergh doesn't make trailers, studio PR teams do...and they seem to believe there are only three or four major audiences to market to...in this case they chose "women who love romantic comedies," and stuck to that tore Hollywood cliche that most audiences will get turned off by male flesh.

    All who discuss the film make it clear that its funny, but dark, and that it is the story of Pettyfer's character being mentored by Tatum's character. The core romance is supposed to be through Pettyfer's character, not Tatum's, as everyone who has read the script confirms this. The fact that Pettyfer, who Soderbergh, Tatum, and everyone who has read the script, says is main character IS NOT EVEN IN THE TRAILER tells you that this is a deliberate attempt to emphasize the male flesh/stripping and emphasize what Hollywood views as proven...Channing Tatum, Matthew McConnaghey, and romantic comedies, even if none of them are front and center in the actual film.

    Every report on this movie from the actors, director, screenwriter, and those who'd read the script said it was a) about Pettyfer's charqcter's journey, b) a "hard R" level of raunchy, c) full of A LOT of skin and fully choreography stripping, and d) darkly funny. The parts for Cody Horn and McConnaghey aren't that big in the script though the studio has reasons for promoting both. I don't think there is any way this film could live up to the hype, especially for gay men, but I think we will find this trailer was grossly misleading in an attempt to market the film to women and not threaten straight men. Very dumb, but very surprising, studio marketing math.
