Erik Bates: “It ruled.”
I was not expecting to laugh as much as I did, that's for sure. The movie constantly makes fun of itself, while still keeping to the premise of the television show on which it was based. I'm not 100% sold on Tatum's abilities as an actor, but Jonah Hill is turning out to be quite talented, skillfully pulling off comedic as well as serious roles. I'm also scared about the future of Hollywood after saying that.
Scott Hardie: I read reviews praising Tatum's acting in Magic Mike (which also makes me scared for the future of Hollywood), but I guess that movie was basically his life story, so he had a shortcut. If Tatum turns up playing a developmentally challenged man, a man with a cripping disease that's slowly killing him, or a Holocaust victim, then we'll know he's gunning for an Oscar, especially if it's all three at once. − December 17, 2012 more by Scott
