Channing Tatum: Let’s Talk About It

Channing Tatum

Well hello there, Mr. Tatum…

Channing who?  Okay, so I admit that I had absolutely no desire to run out and see this “Magic Mike” movie or jump on the Tatum bandwagon.  Then I get a call from a friend of mine, inviting me out to see the movie.  I always have a great time with this friend, so I figured I would sit through her choice of movie, knowing that I’d have fun just being out with the girls.

The theater was packed with women.  There was so much estrogen in that room I almost grew a third boob just from breathing it all in.  These women were dressed as though they were going to an actual strip joint.  The excitement in the room was intense, and I wasn’t getting it.  I just wanted some popcorn.  So the movie starts and you can hear giddy laughter all over the place.  Channing Tatum is on the big screen, and all at once, I totally get it.  I see what all the hype is about.  He easily surpasses the beauty of every greek god, and there’s a certain charm and believability in his acting.

The first strip scene begins, and I’m not kidding, half of the women’s panties just fell off right there in the theater.  There was screaming and hollering, girls passing out, and I got hit on the head with several wads of dollar bills.  (Okay, I’m exaggerating, but not by much) I wondered if these women knew that Channing Tatum was not actually there.  It was like they thought he could hear them or something.  It was interesting to see how wild these girls get over someone they’ve never even met.   Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with admiring his beauty.  He has a ton of it.  Plus, this guy can move!  He comes across as a vulnerable bad ass, and it’s very easy to get wrapped up in the Tatum obsession.

I had a lot of fun at the movie.  The energy in the room was great, and the story line was good, although I don’t think anybody was really paying attention.  I’m pretty sure we were all looking into how to become an extra on the next Tatum movie.

  1. Think I’ll wait until this comes out on DVD, or Dish TV. I couldn’t take the audience participation…I like my sex for one or two only;-) And I definitely don’t need a third boob…

  2. I love him. Well, I love looking at him. Have you seen The Vow? Uh…if I ever woke up from a coma, and Channing Tatum told me that he was my husband…I wouldn’t be asking any questions except, “When do we do it next?” Glad you had fun!

  3. I hate to break it to all of you, but I’m pretty sure Tatum is a gay. So forget all the chiseled abs, pretty hair, and overall good-lookingness; the fact is, slightly overweight couch potatoes are the “in” thing. Besides, a bunch of little ab muscles looks feminine compaired to a big hairy gut.
    Suck it Tatum!

  4. This post really made me laugh, because I saw this movie over the weekend and wrote about it, and the experience was pretty much the same as yours: women going crazy over a man they’ll never have. But that’s half the fun, I guess. You’re right about Tatum though, he definitely has moves and is great eye candy!

    • Will I love me. I see the world as an extension of me. Therefore, I love the world. Though I agree with the need for an hnoset pursuit of authentic self love (different fron pure self gratification or a love that allows others to be used for our own impulses), the logic string that you provide here is not cogent. Oddly enough, there are people who are still wrestling with self love while actually working in the world in a way that manifests a true love of the world; others, the environment and the method to make sure that what they do for others and the environment does last beyond their own participation. At the same time, there are those who love themselves while still not able to love the world. They may love themselves, and have had to struggle to get to that reality. However, they may have been abused or degraded by the world in any one of it’s many agents, and are still not able to love the world. I’ve seen them function wonderfully and with a cautious happiness.Beware philosophies that can fit easily onto a bumper sticker; it negates the importance of those who live outside the parameters of the catch phrase and the contributions that they make for a better living experience for themselves and for all of us.Also, this phrase does follow within a verifiable logical syntax, and it does not allow for the application of reductio ad absurdum. Otherwise, I applaud your effort in bringing forward a much needed discussion of the relationship we have within the world and how our own connection within our deepest self impacts the way we move and live in the world. We do have a responsibility towards our own self love, for so many reasons. This includes the reason which is found in our citizenship within this world! I hope that you will receive my clarification along with my admiration and applause. Keep up the beautiful work!

    • This experiment helps me unatesrdnd why so many people read the stories in my book and thank me that the people become so personal, that their stories are of the size we can grasp in the same way we come to know people in our own community one at a time.a0 I would hope that as you read Into the Mud, you come to care about these people’s needs because their needs have become close enough to become our needs.

  6. I went to see it (Loved the whole experience of it all). I went to a matinee and the theater was pretty empty. It was me and someone else, then a few groups of women that came together. Pack-style. Loved your review!

    Loved your post. I saw the movie opening night and had the same experience, basically women who all really needed a trip to Vegas but hey the movies is much cheaper. After seeing it the second time I had to blog about and gave a pingback to your blog here. Good stuff. Absolutely on point in saying that he comes across as a “vulnerable bad ass” he does! and he is so believable. I swear if he wasn’t already married, I’d probably have to take up stalking as job (I mean that’s what paparazzi are right?)

    • Thank you so much for the pingback! I really appreciate it, I need all the help I can get over here. 🙂 I think the audience was half the fun of the experience!

    • twibooklover – Mar 23, 2012 Do not get me wrong, this movie was okay, it would have been better if I would have never seen the 21 jump srteet show back in the 80 s. But this movie was basically making fun of one of my favorite tv shows, so for that reason I cannot say that is was more than okay. I love Channing Tatum but this movie . hmmm if you have never seen the show you will like it, but if you did, you may find it like I did, a joke.

    • My boss, who is also a youth pastor, and his wrhsoip leader, both bought a pair of these to wear to camp this year! I told them that they were crazy! Apparently they are really comfortable and it doesn’t even feel like you are wearing shoes. I think they are pretty silly looking. Not sure if I would wear em in public.
