About the Movie
Let's hear it for the boys! Matthew McConaughey, Channing Tatum (Step Up) and Alex Pettyfer (I Am Number Four) star in this revealing drama set in the world of exotic male dancing. Tatum plays Magic Mike, a womanizing hustler with an entrepreneurial spirit who makes his living on the stage. When he takes on a protégé (Pettyfer) to instruct him in the fine art of hustling onstage and off, he finds himself falling for the newcomer's sister (Cody Horn) -- and questioning his life choices. Oscar® winner Steven Soderbergh (Sex, Lies & Videotape, Ocean's Eleven films) directs an all-star cast that also includes White Collar's Matt Bomer, True Blood's Joe Manganiello, Olivia Munn and Matthew McConaughey as a former dancer and now owner of the club.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Soderbergh has created a spicy yet lucid, surgingly high-energy yet smartly modernistic musical.
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: 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.
Rotten: After its overly drawn out introduction (featuring far too much stripping), the movie rushes in its final stages.
Who needs a storyline? Who cares? I LOVE this movie for very shallow reasons. So will you.
Seriously, I can't understand the population that loved this film. It was boring, had crappy dialog and the acting sucked. Oh yeah, you went to the movie hoping for a whole lot of naked. the movie was limp in that region as well.
Im a guy
I'm a guy and I'm straight. But this movie was great. I was expecting a good film because of a very talented director and cast. Its a lot of fun. Even the strip scenes are done knowing exactly what they are, and they're actually funny. The choreography is really good as well. The story is straight forward and you've seen it before but its a really entertaining, well made film.
