With the release of the second Magic Mike movie, Magic Mike XXL, the commercial promo for it has been playing on T.V. frequently. So Hubby asked me if I was going to go see it with my girlfriends, and I said, “Maybe. The first one sucked but, ya know, eye candy.”
To which he replied, “Only women would sit through a bad movie just to see an actor they thought was hot. Guys wouldn’t watch a bad movie just for the hot actress.”
I had to admit to personally being guilty as charged. When I have had “crushes” on actors (or singers, or guitar players, or…you get the idea), I wanted to see Everything He Was In Ever. Even if it sucked. I have many old VHS tapes and DVDs to attest to that fact, even though I may never watch them again. I mean, Jean Claude Van Damme? Seriously, what the hell was I thinking?!
So it started a debate between us. The next day, Hubby asked pretty much every guy he came in contact with about it and they all said, “No.” They would not purposely watch a movie or show that was known to be or likely to be bad, just for the hot chick. They have standards, you know. Ohhhh…so that’s why most porn is so high quality….yeah.
Could it be that men do it, too, but just won’t admit it, especially to another guy?
It really doesn’t bother me to sit through a bad movie if the hot guy is in most of the scenes. I just focus on him, and who cares about the rest? But if I sat through a bad movie with no eye candy in it, I’d be grumbling, for sure. Although, recording on DVR helps- I sailed through the Red Road, pausing only for Jason Momoa scenes. Maybe that is the ultimate solution!
What do you think? How far would you go for eye candy? It is it just a woman thing, or do guys do it, too?
