This was ok. Generally I'm in love with the genre-centric turn that Soderbergh has taken lately and I applaud him for being open to what is probably the closest to a modern-day song-and-dance as he feels comfortable getting, but the major lack of story really hurt this for me. Channing Tatum's physicality is impressive and I love how greasy McConaughy plays his part. I didn't 100% buy Tatum's non-dancing performance though, probably not helped at all by how flat the sister role was. The last scene was groan-worthy in how neatly is tried to tie things up even though I was still all WTF about The Kid's future as a doucher and what the hell Tatum would do that didn't involve fucking the floor and really nothing resolves at all. In story terms there's not much there, but it's shot well and I was never bored and I got to see Munn's boobs even though I really don't like like her much.
To me the best performance was Joe Manganiello's face while pumping. It was only about 2 seconds long but it was fantastic.
