Magic Mike

Work all day. Work it all night.


Magic Mike
Soderbergh takes another look at the struggles of Working Class America, while providing an eyeful for female viewers. Set in the world of male strippers, we follow the eponymous Mike as he takes a young dancer called The Kid under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money. Most of what you pay for is in the opening scenes, whereafter the film morphs darker.

113 minutes.

What the Critics say

Cape Times
David Rooney quote iconThe raunchiest, funniest and most enjoyably non-judgemental American movie about selling sex. Film has ample man candy.
15
Box Office
Mark Olsen quote iconAudiences, particularly females, will likely come out for the ab-tastic hijinks, though once they've seen the fuller contours of the film, word of mouth may be a dicier proposition.
15
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconMagic Mike starts as fun and grows steadily darker; Soderbergh and cast tell a realistic, vivid story. You get a feeling of realism and research.
15
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconIt's an okay film with a far too standard plotline -- courtesy of scribe Reid Carolin -- that should perform well with audience members looking for lots of cinematic beefcake for a change (compared to the usual parade of female skin in most movies -- although there's some of that here as well).
