Magic Mike XXL costars Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, Amber Heard and Jada Pinkett Smith all headed out on a boat ride along one of Amsterdam’s canals Wednesday afternoon.

Magic Mike Cast Boat Ride

After touching down in Amsterdam on their global press tour, the Magic Mike cast climbed into a riverboat to get to their final destination. Tatum, Manganiello, Bomer and Rodriguez were pictured taking in the sunny day alongside their female costars Heard and Pinkett Smith, who looked as glam as ever.

Tatum, who produced as well as starred in the Magic Mike sequel, sees his career evolving as he grows older and wiser in the industry.

“Things happen that change your perspective. Not just your opinion but your windshield, your lens. Like you put on a 50-mm. [lens], then take that 50 off and put on a 16. Now you can see so much more, but you’re missing the little things,” Tatum told Vanity Fair. “I think for a while I’m going to try to make movies that, even if they don’t make a dollar, I’ll still be so proud to be a part of them that it won’t matter.”

Magic Mike XXL has premiered to mediocre reviews from critics, who acknowledge that audiences will likely enjoy the sequel just as much as the first – even if it’s a bit shallow in plot.

The Star-Ledger‘s Stephen Whitty called it “a guiltlessly dumb movie that mostly coasts by on pecs appeal, hip-hop beats and pelvic thrusts. Lots of pelvic thrusts, adding, “It’ll probably make a ton of money – there isn’t a lot of competition out there, certainly in girls-night-out movies made to be prefaced by two-for-one-margarita-specials. As I said, for a big dumb guy, Tatum is actually very, very smart. But he’s getting too smart, and too good, for this.”
