At first, the movie was so slow that I thought it wasn't about what I expected it to be about. ...Then, it was. Good story, but not portrayed as effectively as Boogie Nights with Mark Whalberg. Watch Boogie Nights instead for better drama with the same story.
Set in the world of male strippers, Magic Mike is directed by Steven Soderbergh and stars Channing Tatum in a story inspired by his real life. The film follows Mike (Tatum) as he takes a young dancer ... read more

Except the bravery concept of making this movie and having such a wonderful cast, 'Magic Mike' for me is just a decent entertainment movie that quickly be forgotten from your mind after you finished watching it.. Maybe while the strippers show the audiences their performances, we...

Classic Sodebergh dialog. The pacing is a bit odd, but so is reality, and I think that's basically the point. Despite Mathhew Moconaghey(sp.) having a large role in the film, I enjoyed it.

It is all that could be expected by a film like this! Just like the subject matter - cheesy and questionable! lol

After all the hype and the derision from my friends, I finally saw Steven Soderbergh's male stripper opus Magic Mike, and it does not pain me to say, as a red-blooded heterosexual male, that I found it mostly enjoyable. I understand the detractors, many of whom were let down by t...

One of the more highly anticipated and female friendly films that came out last summer, "Magic Mike" is overall a fluffy story about a male stripper going through the hardships of his profession while trying to escape it. The story is supposedly based on the former life of Channi...

Inspired by his own life story, Channing Tatum stars as the title character: an entrepreneur who works a series of various jobs by day, and lights up his nights as the star at a prosperous Tampa strip club.

Work all day. Work it all night.
Good movie! First let's get the nude issue out of the way. There is only one full frontal in the movie it's off to the side, is partially blocked and is probably faked. It's also very funny. There's mostly butt shots only but all are from Tatum,...

"Lets not pretend that most went to see this movie in the theatre or rented it for the story-line. I know I didn't LOL. But the story did end up being more interesting then what was going down on the stage. Well, until Channing or Bomer or Manganiello took the stage. I can't help...
