This Movie is painfully heartfelt, but funny. While the movie is not exactly a true masterpiece -- it is a complex story about back stage hunks who love shake their butts with their heart and soul. They are freewheeling strippers, who work during the day on a construction site. Naturally they have all the muscular power that you ever seen. Talk about ripped abs - they have it all. Everyone wants to hang out with these guys. Of course -- the women can't resist them.
Expertly put together, this film can be extremely funny, and then on the other hand, drugs help to keep the indisputable "Gods" (to the women) in great shape at all times. And that is what ruins their little Party. The Drugs took over and seemingly the end of their dreams of reaching Las Vegas.
This is a dysfunctional drama that is emotionally charged. You don't see complete nudity -- but you do get to see a lot a tight ends. The characters -- all of them, are interesting and appealing. Even though they do some naughty outlandish things. The dancers remind of "Thunder Down Under" -- a Strip show that has appeared at the Rrazz Room and other venues. On the screen -- it is a little more dramatic. Naturally -- it's powered by great directing and perfect lighting. Love comes and goes -- and some of the lives are totally ruined.
The movie is handsomely performed by the worthy cast. Even though it may not be for everyone -- some will leap over barriers to get to see Magic Mike. And there is this: The film repeats many of the Strip Tease moments. If you've seen one Butt, you've seen them all. It gets a little tiresome. But, on the other hand it's intense and visually striking. Strong Directing by: Steven Soderbergh. Writer: Reid Carolin (Screenplay) keeps you interested. Here are the fascinating stars: Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer and Olivia Munn.
