The red states are fabulous.

Several men in trenchcoats were seen leaving the screening, many looked dehydrated.

It has to be the first time in history where guys want to see a movie about a teddy bear and girls want to see a movie about strippers.

/saw a Facebook photo saying that

the Midwest and the South

Close enough.

Since each film skewed heavily toward either men (Ted) or women men (Mike),

Pent up sexually frustrated people saw Ted?

So when you buy a movie ticket there's someone taking note of your gender? What other personal information are they collecting without our knowledge?
 
2012-07-06 12:58:13 PM  
There's probably a lot of guys who took their wives in the red states.

"Magic Mike" is just another attempt by Hollywood gays to force their lifestyle down the throats of God-fearing Americans.

"Magic Mike" is the worst comic-book movie in years!! NOT CANON!!
 
2012-07-06 01:01:11 PM  
So people who live in an area that encourages thinking and possibly imagination wanted to see Ted and people living in repressed areas wanted to see cocks? I'm shocked.

At this movie? Probably your penis measurements.

Olivia Munn does get topless in Magic Mike so at least it has that going for it.

FTFA: traditionally conservative, midsize cities [...] St. Louis

St. Louis is a very blue city in an otherwise very red state, so I'm not sure this is actually supporting their conclusion.

Red staters love sex more for all the right reasons. Ergo, they have way more babies.

Similar sentiment as the old joke...

Lutherans don't recognize the authority of the Pope, Jews don't recognize the divinity of Christ, and Baptists don't recognize each other in the "adults only" section of the local video store.

Didn't they boo Obama at the allstar game? Just saying. Maybe there more blue than the surrounding area but more red than the national average.

We coastal elites are too busy watching obscure foreign films. I'm not sure what a Channing Tatum is, but I'd love to digress on my personal Top 15 list of Estonian character actors.

Speaking of Baptists, how do you keep the Baptist from drinking all of your beer when you go fishing? Take along two Baptists.

I thought all living beings found Matthew what's-his-name repulsive? Seriously, as a straight guy who has no problem admitting when another man is attractive, Matthew what's-his-name is skeezy on a level that makes Serge Gainsbourg look like Mr. Rogers.

/Elitist?
//Obscure?

I'm gay and he does absolutely zero for me. Not repulsed, not attracted - just nothing.

ha. i told my wife I wanted to see "the talking bear movie", which she thought was called Magic Mike.

So she tells her coworkers, "my husband really wants to see Magic Mike".

Hilarity ensued.

/"uhhhh.......he wants to see Magic Mike? Uhh.......is he trying to tell you something?"

Thank you for this. No one I know seems to appreciate Mangianello and Bomer as they should

that's a very good question. how would they know?

IrishCanadian: Mangianello


Are you kidding? I've been drooling over him since he played Flash Thompson in the first Spiderman movie through How I Met Your Mother.

I don't watch the Bomer show on TNT or whatever. But he is a cutey and from what little I've seen seems to be a solid actor.

I wish there was a male-stripper superhero team. That would be hilarious.

I wonder how well Mike did in San Francisco?

I think Magic Mike would be considered passé there.
