Two Steven Soderbergh movies starring Channing Tatum reviewed in one day!?! Well, truth be told, Channing “Magic Mike” Tatum isn’t nearly as entertaining as Channing “Side Effects” Tatum. The elements of an entertaining movie are all there: Steven Soderbergh, Matthew McConaughey, a love triangle, male strippers, rags-to-riches story, and even some drug gangs to boot. Soderbergh’s direction is fine and McConaughey does a decent job delivering the only kind of performance he seems capable of delivering as of recent, you know, his “I’m snorting crazy cocaine like a mad dog” performance. On the down side, the love story isn’t believable, the male stripping is only s0-so, and the rags-to-riches story doesn’t do anything new or particularly interesting. So there you go. Watchable.

I entirely agree with this assessment, as it turns out. Bland, formulaic, zero chemistry between Tatum and his main love interest. Side Effects is awesome though!
