Magic Mike

Saucy comedy-drama set in the world of male strippers starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey. Directed by Steven Soderbergh (Ocean's 11) and inspired by Tatum's real-world experience.

Mike (Tatum) is an entrepreneur by day. But at night he's the headliner in an all-male revue at Club Xquisite, run by Dallas (McConaughey). Seeing potential in a guy he calls the Kid (Alex Pettyfer), Mike takes the 19-year-old under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of male stripping and making easy money.

Provides just enough character and plot to validate the plentiful pecs and abundant buns that serve as its main attraction.

Soderbergh lets his hair down with a frank, funny dramedy that bulges with humour, heart and smarts as McConaughey gives it everything he’s got, in a potentially gong-grabbing turn.

A smoothly distilled collaboration that balances Mr. Tatum's heat and charm with Mr. Soderbergh's cool, cinematic intelligence and ongoing preoccupations.

It's a well-handled, engaging, lightweight picture.

Starts as fun and grows steadily darker; Soderbergh and cast tell a realistic, vivid story.

If Soderbergh had paid as much attention to relationship dynamics as he does to dance number mechanics, this film would have gotten closer to living up to the magic in its name.

Arguably the raunchiest, funniest and most enjoyably nonjudgmental American movie about selling sex since Boogie Nights, its obvious if considerably darker precursor.

This is terrific entertainment with a sideline in wry melancholia and testosterone-fuelled philosophy.

Magic Mike looks great, and Soderbergh's offhand approach to composition cuts through some of the clichés.

Honestly, wasn't sure it was going to have any substance, but I was surprised by how much I just enjoyed the actual dialogue, yes honestly. Some really good bromance banter going on, in amongst some hot ass dancing.

A lot more nudity than I expected, the story line somewhat surprised me. I thought beyond reasonable doubt that this film would just be for the girls, but I do think that guys would equally enjoy this film for the humour. Not normally the kind of film I would normally watch, and definitely not the best movie to watch with someone you just met and who can't...

Working In a cinema, I have had multiple couples ask me what this movie is like. Men obviously wondering why their girlfriends think it would be a good idea to bring them to a film about male strippers..and women wondering why their boyfriends don't want to be a part of their fantasies. One answer I give is; It's not as cheesy as I expected, in fact the...

No imagination needed here. Good bods, eye candy with energetic moves with lots of skin, and that's all that is going for it. The story is predictable and although funny at times, I got bored. The different camera angles and slightly out of focus filming technique I found were a bit distracting and did not achieve the arty feel I think the director was...

Wow I was expecting this to be a schmaltzy chick flick worth the price of admission simply for the perve factor. Actually its a pretty well told story of how so called fast paced fun jobs like hospo/entertainment/adult industry can be taxing on the body and soul. sure you might get laid and lead a supposedly fast paced exciting life but temptation can drag...
