With Magic Mike XXL out Wednesday, Screen Junkies has released an Honest Trailer about the original Magic Mike, a movie it says was way more mundane than it needed to be. “Meet Magic Mike,” the trailer says. “He may not be a wizard, but he is a hot dude with all the right moves—who struggles to overcome social stigmas about his job and can’t seem to raise enough money to start his dream business, no matter how hard he tries.” Between Mike’s money woes, The Kid’s drug-dealing dilemma, and Tarzan’s substance problem, there sure are a lot of abject issues for a movie that billed itself as a fun romp. Thank God for Matthew McConaughey and his assless chaps!
