'Magic Mike' works on a construction site by day and as a stripper by night, but what he really want to do to start his own furniture business. When new boy in town Adam (The Kid) joins the dance troupe, Mike also meets and gets to know Adam's sister. She likes him but not his stripper lifestyle ...

This is an extremely enjoyable film. Yes, it has hot guys with fit bodies and amazing dance routines. But also an enjoyable story too. The seedier side of this life is touched on but does not take over the film. Channing Tatum is amazing in this and he can certainly move, and of course we know this is loosely based on his time as a real-life stripper. Alex Pettifer and Matthew McConnaughey are also very good.

Easy watching, enjoyable and full of guys who are easy on the eye. Great entertainment! The DVD even has some extended dance scenes and a dance play mode where you can watch just the dance routines. What's not to like?!

What could be more appealing to the masses than a bunch of studly men parading around in there all togethers? How about not that? I'm a bloke and pretty much happy with my role in the social spectrum, so when my partner and her friends decided to watch `Magic Mike' I stayed to watch it with them. A sea of man flesh is not going to harm me (apart from my ego as another washboard stomach goes by). `Magic Mike' is a snapshot of the life of a male review club that is on the up. The lead dancer is Mike (Channing Tatum), who perhaps wants more from the deal, there is the owner, Dallas (Matthew McConaughey), and finally the new kid in town (Alex Pettyfer).

Loosely based on Tatum's own time as a dancer, `Magic Mike' is a film that has a sense of realism to it. The club is not huge, the audiences of adequate size - perhaps the dances themselves are a little over sold, but for the most part this is a typical Stephen Soderbergh kitchen sink type of drama, but with more baby oil. For the 20 minutes of oiled up men, you get 70 minutes of talking and mumbling to one another.

The spectacle of the dances is great - I am sure some people will appreciate them a lot. Tatum in particular shows off his prowess as a former dancer, the likes of Kevin Nash show that he was a former wrestler and can't really dance. It is the drama elements of the film that let it down. There is a central romance that fails to sizzle as the film is too downbeat and the female lead (Cody Horn) is dull. With no impetus between the dance set pieces, the film feels like a series of sparkling ups and then smack down into the doldrums. Soderbergh needed to hang more plot onto the dance sections, rather than shedding the story off like a pair of Velcro lined trousers.

Dancing, blokes, oil. You should probably watch it in HD for the maximum fun-age. My partner and her friends also liked the extras, in particular the one that just shows all the dances back to back.

Well, where should I begin. I knew this film was going to be pretty sexy, but I still wasn't prepared for the heat that From the very first time I saw the trailer, I knew that this was a film I had to see. Four extremely hot strippers? Hell yes. When I found out that Magic Mike is in fact, in part, based up Channing Tatum's own experiences as a 19 year old stripper, I was even more intrigued by this film. Whilst on the surface this may look like a superficial film designed to attract women to their local cinemas for a legalised strip show, there are actually some deeper themes explored within this movie. Tatum's character is one who is only in the stripping industry to earn money so that he can start up his own business, so it's not all about women, money and sex.

The story is basically about a guy, Adam, a slacker who moves to Tampa to find work whilst sleeping on his sister's couch. On his first day of work at a construction site, he meets Mike, who is less than pleased to be working with him. The very same evening, Adam is wandering the streets and bumps into Mike outside a club and after a some persuasion, Mike agrees to get Adam in. Mike decides to string Adam along, subtley getting him to help draw in customers for that night's show in return for a little money. When Adam finds out what sort of business Mike is in, he's startled to say the least, but after a small taste in the limelight and lots of money to show for it, Adam decides to give it a real go. Mike and Adam soon become the best of buds, but it's not long before they run into some trouble.

The acting was absolutely brilliant in this film, not to mention the tantalisingly sexy dancing.

To all heterosexual men...get past the whole 'I can not put myself through this because its men in thongs dancing so it must make me something i am not' approach..and you may just find yourself engrossed in a light, art disguised as a frothy blockbuster little drama with lashings of surreal and hilarious comedic moments. The dance scenes are, not only expertly shot from an asthetic technical standpoint, but are absolutely side splitingly funny.

The story however is not as deep or as philosophical as it thinks it is or as Soderbergh thinks he can make it but it is slightly more enticing than your average rom-com lets say. And kudos to Channing Tatum, who for someone i have unjustly discriminated against in the past, really is quite fantastic in this. Not to mention Matthew McConaughey who is sensational as a 'T.J. Mackey light' person of some merit to the scripts neat dialogue.

Magic Mike isn't revelatory but it does feel somewhat real and fluent in telling a basic rags to riches story and then turning that idea on it's head near the end. Theres too much titillation in this medium.. so, hell!, its time the ladies enjoyed the moment.
