What is Elton John doing in that picture?

Was just wondering how a thread hadn't been started on this one yet.

Wish there was a more ensemble vibe from the preview. There's a lot of, um, talent in this cast that didn't even show up in any of that footage.

Still, 21 Jump Street made me actually not dread the idea of Channing Tatum being at the center of this.

jungleous butterflies strange birds (Eric H.), Thursday, 19 April 2012 12:53 (4 years ago) Permalink

TBH, that trailer is a huge buzzkill. Is the whole thing about his relationship with junior stripper's sister?

i kind of hope ol' steve spends the rest of his career working his way through every sub-subgenre out there.

it's like a 2012 pretty woman innit?

dayo, Thursday, 19 April 2012 12:56 (4 years ago) Permalink

not that i really want to see any of them, more that it's just pleasant to think of a steven soderbergh campus sex comedy starring former american idols and members of the u.s. curling team in 2015.

Ready to give Pettyfer best supporting actor award already.

Don't mind Tatum at all, especially if he treats me like Elton John.

Very much ready to see Tatum grinding to "Pony."

Each of my gay irl friends that I've discussed the movie agreed with me, tho, that Tatum is maybe the least attractive member of this movie's stripper troupe. To gay men, anyway.

jungleous butterflies strange birds (Eric H.), Thursday, 19 April 2012 13:08 (4 years ago) Permalink

what on earth is a pettyfer -- is it something gay men wear around their waists to protect their virtue?

nah -- McConaughey is by far.

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Thursday, 19 April 2012 13:12 (4 years ago) Permalink

Not c. 1996. Anyway, we disqualified in on account of he's playing the Joel Grey role.

jungleous butterflies strange birds (Eric H.), Thursday, 19 April 2012 13:13 (4 years ago) Permalink

oh yeah before, say, 1998 he was ok. Now I don't think he's seen Speed Stick in years.

per catherine deneuve, at a certain age you have to choose between your face and your ass, and i'm not convinced mcconaughey made the correct choice tbh

Haha, never heard that one before, but I think in this case, McC made the only choice he could.

bcz he's "formally" "retired" from feature directing, but is cinematographer and editor on this, when he doesn't even usually credit himself as editor on his own stuff, seems likely that he was at least somewhat more involved than the credits allow

soderbergh did shoot and edit many of his own features, he just did so under different names

well, soderbergh himself sez he didn't direct it, i'd take him at his word until we get evidence to the contrary, no?

wizzz! (amateurist), Thursday, 25 June 2015 16:17 (1 year ago) Permalink

he just did so under different names

hence me saying "credit himself"

I'm not saying he did ghost-direct it, just why people* might suspect that he did

(nb Spielberg didn't actually ghost Poltergeist and was only on set as producer a few days or occasionally iirc? for me knowing he shot & cut MM XXL made it more than enough of a Soderbergh film to want to see it after all, preferably in a cinema full of women)

there's a lot of evidence spielberg did in fact direct or co-direct most of poltergeist

saw xxl a couple of weeks ago and it's a blast. it's hilariously stakes-free (the event they're road-trippin' towards isn't even a competition!) but the cast have really good chemistry and it's fun just to hang out with them for a couple of hours. joe mangianello's gas-station strip is all-time.

rewatched the first one, forgot that the supporting strippers hardly do anything but dance (save for the Pettyfer-Bomer "I love YOU, man" drug scene, which wd have led to a pansexual quadrilateral in a pr0n).

one of the funniest things about it was kevin nash looking like he didnt even rehearse any of the dances. there was one point where all the guys were doing their coordinated routine and he's the only one whose lower body is completely motionless.

Super entertainment, as good if not better than the other studio stuff I've seen this year. The cheapo attitude -- no name director, same cast, no script besides routines and one-liners that sound improvised -- is just what this concept needed (no Pettyfur already a plus).

I forgot Matt Bomer was in the original. Fuck Matt Damon for saying an out gay actor would never convince anyone he can play a part. Guess it helped that he's playing the gayest straight male stripper.

Kevin Nash was an extremely broken down wrestler who once tore his quad while running across the ring, so yes it's pretty funny he's in these movies.

Chris L, Monday, 12 October 2015 02:29 (8 months ago) Permalink

I think Tatum or Soderbergh or somebody said that Nash's character is a stripping "Lifer" who just doesn't try anymore, isn't good for anything else etc.
