Magic Mike [DVD] [Canadian]
Region 1 USA/CA (
Steven Soderbergh's MAGIC MIKE stars Channing Tatum as the title character, an entrepreneur who works as a roofer and in several other occupations, but makes most of his money being the star attraction at Club Xquisite, a male strip joint in Tampa that fills every weekend night with drunken, horny women eager to slide dollar bills between hard-bodied dudes and the G-strings they wear. While on a roofing job, Mike meets Adam (Alex Pettyfer), a misfit college dropout who lost a football scholarship when he punched his coach, and he decides to teach the kid how to become an exotic dancer. Mike introduces Adam to Dallas (Matthew McConaughey), the owner of the club, and gets him onto the crew of regular performers. As Dallas plans a big move for the troupe, Mike tries to start his dream business, falls for Adam's sister, and sees Adam fall to the temptations of the stripper life.
Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Matthew McConaughey, Cody Horn, Olivia Munn, Riley Keough, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez
"It's cheerfully raunchy, and delivers the goods for fans of male beefcake, though with more innocence, along with some sadness, than would appear at first blush."
Wall Street Journal
3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] crafty mixture of comedy, romance, melodrama and some remarkably well-staged strip routines involving hunky, good-looking guys."
"[Soderbergh] has made sure that the onstage part of MAGIC MIKE is characterized by energy and flash."
Los Angeles Times
"[A] funny, enjoyable romp about male strippers and the American dream....Its clear the director is out to maximize everyones pleasure."
New York Times
4 stars out of 5 -- "MAGIC MIKE both is and isn't the freewheeling, fun-loving, male stripper extravaganza its trailers peddle. Running parallel to this flesh game is another of Soderbergh's nuanced looks at contemporary American life..."
"[A]rguably the raunchiest, funniest and most enjoyably nonjudgmental American movie about selling sex since BOOGIE NIGHTS..."
"Almost as impressive as Tatum's moves are his comic flair and breezy grace."
4 stars out of 5 -- "Soderbergh's out to give audiences a good time, and he succeeds."
"Channing Tatum proves himself a true movie star. His Mike glides through the world with the ease of a god, and on stage he's electrifying." -- Grade: A-
"There is no better actor for such a part than McConaughey, who inhabits the role while occasionally using it to send up his own public image." -- Grade: B
"[T]his is a film about strippers having a really smashing ime, and on that level it's a likeable exercise in don't-take-yourself-so-seriously."
