Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Soderbergh has created a spicy yet lucid, surgingly high-energy yet smartly modernistic musical."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"The dance numbers, choreographed by Allison Faulk, are inventive and athletic, but not really erotic; Soderbergh never lets you forget that, for these men, dancing is above all a job."
‑ Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
"Once you get past the thongs, the uniforms, and the sleek choreographed stripping dance routines -- admittedly, the main attraction of Magic Mike for most audiences -- it's just another day at the office for Steven Soderbergh"
‑ Glenn Dunks, Trespass
"Musings on the nature of capitalism wrapped in a very pretty package ... Magic Mike is a film for adventurous audiences of all persuasions."
‑ Catherine Bray, Film4
"Magic Mike takes a familiar story and transforms it into something modern, unique and beautiful to look at (and I'm not just talking beefcakes, here)."
‑ Kofi Outlaw, ScreenRant
"Tatum, whose talents have been the subject of debate, also makes Mike genuinely affecting, not to mention articulate within the bounds of a sketchy script."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Magic Mike has a conventional structure, yet a teasing question percolates beneath: If selling yourself is as much fun as this movie makes it look, what could be wrong with it?"
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"The sexy mischief and the darkness and the earnest character beats all fit together in one terrifically entertaining, perfectly pitched success."
‑ Meredith Borders, Badass Digest
"Some wildly entertaining dancing (and stripping) underscores several impressive performances."
‑ Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground
"Engaging and sensitive"
‑ Sam Bathe, Fan The Fire
"Does a better job of mixing Chippendales-style guilty pleasures with reality-based cautionary tales than you might expect."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"If you're looking for a romance with 100 percent prime beefcake? Get your singles out and ready, ladies. "Magic Mike" is in the house."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Raucous, funny and disgracefully entertaining."
‑ Andy Lea, Daily Star
"Steven Soderbergh has made a movie that works as both intimate character study and party film."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"I never imagined that I would see The Full Monty re-envisioned by the Oscar winning director of Erin Brokovich and Traffic. But yup, here you have it: Steven Soderberg has created his stripping opus."
‑ Adam Ross, The Aristocrat
