Steven Soderbergh directs this comedy drama set in the world of male strip clubs. Inspired by experiences from the early days in the career of the film's star, actor Channing Tatum, the film follows Mike (Tatum) as he takes a young dancer called The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing and tutors him in the arts of all-night partying, picking up women and making easy money. As his latest recruit's popularity with the ladies soars, however, Mike's interest in The Kid's sister Brooke (Cody Horne), which at first seems to be welcomed, takes an unexpected knock when she begins to question his hedonistic lifestyle.

'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?!

Spoiler alert! This review contains spoilers!
Very disappointed in this film. I made my husband watch this with me and for that baby I am so so very sorry. The story line is predictable and unimaginative. The stripping was nice for a the first 10 minutes and then just got old. It could have been so much better. I'm not sure where to categorize this as it isn't exactly funny and yet it isn't a complete drama either.
Mike is a thirty year old stripper with a dream. He saves for six years just so he can fulfill that dream. He somehow has very bad credit and yet drives a brand new car and lives in this amazing house. This baffled me.
By night Mike is a exotic dancer and lover and by day a construction worker. Granted we only see him at his day job once, this still baffled me as we were under the impression that even though we don't see it, he does work as a construction worker by day.
Mike meets Adam: a 19 year old football scholarship college dropout sleep on my sisters couch thief and liar at the site and seems to not like him yet helps him out. Baffled yet again but I swallowed this one as people can be idiots.
Adam just happens to come upon Mike one evening and thus finds his job as stripper which leads him to drugs and bad decisions. His mistakes cost Mike to give up his entire life savings - or near enough. Baffled yet again!
Mike seems to fall for Adams sister Brooke. They have a very strange relationship. Actually not much of a relationship till the end of the movie where Mike decides to drop his life dream and stay by her side. Baffled!
I'm disappointed in Mike. True, he is sexy as hell but unfortunately a little thick headed in my opinion.

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.

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.
