Madea, Mike, and Ted – Movie Battle of The SexesJuly 1st, 2012 at 9:00 pm by Marcus Jackson under The Movie Guru
June 29th, 2012 will go down in Movie History as the day Men and Women were at war on what to go see in the movie theater. We already have to contend with what movie to take the kids to see with Disney Pixar Brave and Madagascar 3. Now we have 3 different “varieties” of movie flavors that have been cooking up in the kitchen of the movie box office. It’s time to dish out the menu of what being offered this weekend at the Adult Table at a theater near you.
First up we have a delicious helping of “Beefcake” that getting all the rage right now for all the ladies out there. Magic Mike, the of a young man trying live out the American dream by day while at night he’s involved the world of male stripper night club scene. This movie is loosely based on actor Channing Tatum, one of the stars of the film, time as a male stripper while he was persuing his dreams of becoming an actor. So he must have a lot of tips to his co-stars Alex Pettyfer, Matthew Bomer, True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello, and Matthew McConaughey. I just been hearing all ladies waiting for opening night when this film comes out. This will be a weekend of “Ladies Night” at the movies. It might be a good be a good idea all you boyfriends and husbands to make that a “Date Night” and take your ladies to see this.
But for the guys who are confident that their ladies won’t leave them after seeing Magic Mike this might be the right time for a “Dudes Night Out” and here’s the perfect movie for you. Straight from the mind of FOX’s Family Guy creator Seth McFarland we have the comedy Ted. Guys, have you ever wondered what your life would be like if your childhood teddy bear came to life and grew up you as your best friend? That’s what happen to Mark Wahlberg as the star and main character of this strange and funny film that co-star Mila Kunis and Seth McFarland as the voice of “Ted E. Bear” – the teddy bear come to life. The Problem: he’s a foul mouthed party animal that causes Mark’s nothing but trouble and he has to find a way to deal with it before his life is ruined. Seth McFarland is known for his off black view of comedy and the voice of “Peter & Stewie Griffin” of Family Guy fame may have a winner here with the guys (and girls) who will go to see this film. But beware; if you’re in a room with Ted E. Bear don’t call him “Teddy Ruxpin”
But you are in the mood for a “lighter” comedy … you won’t get it here but you will get “the Funny”. From the mind of Tyler Perry he’s at it again. The latest adventures of Madea is out in theaters now. This one is entitled Madea’s Witness Protection. Loyal fans of the Madea movies know that Madea is always trying to help somebody out … albeit not by her choice most of the time. This time Madea is “recruited” by the feds to hide out a family so that the mob won’t “whack” them. This movie also stars Remeo, Tom Arnold, Denise Richards, Doris Roberts, John Amos, Marla Gibbs, and Eugene Levy. So if you a good laughfest check it out.
Now that I’m posting on Sunday, the results should be coming in real soon on who the big winner is on the last weekend in June. So that can only mean one thing …. JULY IS HERE! The year is halfway done and the Summer Blockbuster Movie season is at the halfway mark. One of the Most Important Weekend … the 4th of July weekend … will kick off Tuesday July 3rd at Midnight when The Amazing Spider-Man opens in theaters.
Get Ready Movie Fans! Now The Fun REALLY Begins! Time to be “True Believers” once again. I wonder where Stan Lee will make his cameo appearance in this one. See You At The Movies & Have A Safe Independence Day!
