Most Overrated Films of the Year

"Magic Mike". Putting aside complaints about the lack of skin and mirth, what Soderbergh realized is an very traditional, almost prudish film in which a hedonistic man realizes the error of his ways through his love for an honest, hardworking woman, paralleled with a young man's fall from innocence. It could not be more cliched if it simultaneously ended with a wedding and a funeral. Overlooked was a much more interesting story about working-class men dealing with their problems against the backdrop of an eccentric profession. What it wanted to be: Saturday Night Fever What it turned out to be: Flashdance What it should have been: Boogie Nights meets The Full Monty
