Inspired by leading man Channing Tatum’s real-life background in male stripping, before he hit it big in the movies, Magic Mike is an accomplished, rounded slice of often-delicious entertainment. It’s also the kind of film that’s set to be enjoyed time and time again.
At the heart of it are a bunch of men who strip for a living. They include a buffed-up Matthew McConaughey, the aforementioned Tatum, and the new young entrant to their profession, played by Alex Pettyfer. Each of them is convincing in their roles, and looking non-too-shabby.
Yet Magic Mike, directed by Steven Soderbergh, has far more in its locker than a straight hour or two of men taking their clothes off. The film digs into the lives of the leading men when they’re off the stage, in the case of Tatum’s lead character, the difficulty of romance, too. That makes Magic Mike both deeper and a little uneven, certainly. But its proverbial finger is never far from the entertainment button.
The disc release is hardly exhaustive, but it does have extra behind the scenes material that’s worth taking a look at. It’s all got a promotional sheen on it, and it’s disappointing the extras don’t go much further than that. But Magic Mike is still a fine release, and a strong film. --Jon Foster --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Tatum has saved all this money and just gives it away and doesn't seem too bothered. Also the kids sister doesn't stop her brother in the end and doesn't seem bothered that he is doing what he is doing.
After a while the dancing is the same, just gyrating and a few humps. I would hate to go to a club like that! What makes me laugh is that women can scream over some pecs and abs, while men need actual strippers! To make this film better would be to go all out and show us all. What's more beautiful than the human form...... :)
Male strippers live in a world few of us know, it is obviously in America where women put dollar bills inside the stripper's jock.
All the actors have bodies to die for, and Channing himself was apparently a stripper before he became an actor.
Magic Mike is never going to be nominated for an Oscar but it good to watch.
Don't look for moral issues to be explored as these aren't there. Mike takes a young boy under his wing but the boy's straight laced sister doesn't like it.
Clue: Mike tries his charm on her...I leave you to imagine the rest.
