As we face yet another summer of brooding superheroes, it’s Magic Mike to the rescue! He’s got the civilian alter ego and the acrobatic skills to rival Spidey or Batman — but this guy does his best work when he’s taking off a silly outfit...

As surprising as its setting may be, Magic Mike is among the Oscar-winning director’s most conventional projects. A belated coming of age story, it’s about a 30-year-old man who realizes the party lifestyle he’s been living for years can’t last forever.
It's crazy to oversell "Magic Mike," or fluff it up into something its makers never intended. It is not a major motion picture. It is not searing melodrama, though in story outline terms -- the least interesting terms by which to engage with director...
I tell my wife that I really liked “Magic Mike,” and she laughs. This does not surprise me.

"Magic Mike", written by Reid Carolin and directed by Steven Soderbergh, is a tale of the pursuit of the American Dream, set against the world of male strippers. Channing Tatum ("Dear John") stars as the titular character...
Magic Mike is built on the (accurate) premise that there's a significant difference between male and female stripping. The former is almost always accompanied by a keen awareness of its own goofiness. No male strip club, like La Bare or what have you...
Discussing the script of "Magic Mike" is a little like asking a stripper what score they got on their college SATs before you jam a dollar bill into their thong. Once you get past all the hot hunks and strip this movie down to the bare bones...
Reel Film Reviews
Reportedly inspired by star Channing Tatum's past exploits, Magic Mike follows floundering slacker Adam (Alex Pettyfer) as he's drawn into the world of stripping by the charismatic title character (Tatum) - with Adam's money problems erased after club...
Magic Mike is the unlikely latest movie from the unpredictable Soderbergh, whose last several movies have been about assassins, a worldwide contagion, a goofy informant, a high-end escort and Che Guevara.
Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike opens with the old 1970's Warner Brother logo, an appropriate touch, since the movie has as much graphic, out-in-the-open nudity as a film made during that decade. Why all the naked flesh? In case you haven't heard...
As of summer 2012, Magic Mike probably represents Channing Tatum's finest hour. He proved in the riotous 21 Jump Street that he's got comic chops to match his more obvious physical charms, and here he's given convincing emotional depth to play with...
When it was released last summer, it seemed as though every woman I spoke to was super-excited about the release of Magic Mike. While talking to several highly enthusiastic women, I couldn't help but chuckle. They asked what was so funny.
Mark Reviews Movies
There are elements of a morality play at work in Magic Mike, the story of a male stripper who yearns for more but becomes caught up in the struggle to make something of himself to the point that it's a challenge to actually go out and do it.
It turns out that Channing Tatum did a bit of male stripping on the way up the show business ladder, which adds some spice and verisimilitude to “Magic Mike,” a backstage tale about the masculine side of theatrical disrobing...
St. Petersburg Times
Magic Mike is about men dancing suggestively for women who complete the fantasy in their heads and possibly elsewhere. It's a dirty-minded job, but somebody has to do it. It's also a risky idea for a movie, given the spotty track record of films...
Atlantic City Weekly
Steven Soderbergh directing a film about male strippers? What’s up with that? With the release of Magic Mike, based loosely on star Channing Tatum’s early career as a 19-year-old male exotic dancer in Florida, we now have the answer.

When I tell you that "Magic Mike" is about a male stripper who is played by talking beef slab Channing Tatum, who drew from his own pre-stardom experiences as a stripper to inspire the screenplay, you assume the movie is a wild party of sweaty thongs...
For those of us who have been touting Channing Tatum's talent since A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints and Step Up, Magic Mike isn't exactly eye-opening validation. Based in part on Tatum's pre-stardom life as a male stripper, it's something of a given...
I'M LOATH to argue that "Magic Mike" is not really about stripping, because stripping will absolutely pay the bills for this movie.
If the unclothed characters were corn-fed females instead of beefy males, this might be a moldy morality tale, but in the hands of adroit director Steven Soderbergh and rising star Channing Tatum, “Magic Mike” feels as fresh as a summer squash.
In the first few minutes of “Magic Mike” the audience is given a great piece of advice: If you meet a woman whose name is similar to a car, flower or stone, don’t ask what she does for a living.

Affable Magic Mike (Channing Tatum) stars in the erotic Kings of Tampa strip show but his real ambition is to earn a living as a custom furniture designer/craftsman and he yearns for a committed relationship. During the day, he works in Florida...
If you’re coming for the show, you’ll certainly get your money’s worth from “Magic Mike.” Director Steven Soderbergh makes sure his movie about male strippers is packed with pecs. But there’s plenty more beneath its well-oiled surface.
A cliché-ridden script can be overcome by some dynamic performances, and there are some very strong performances in MAGIC MIKE. For the first half of the movie, one gets caught up in the world of male strippers at a Tampa, Florida club, particularly...
It’s tempting to compare ‘Magic Mike’ to ‘Showgirls,’ ‘I Know Who Killed Me’ or other tawdry flicks involving strippers. There are a few key differences, though. With “Magic Mike,” it’s dudes who are doing the disrobing and dancing, and because Steven...
Before Channing Tatum took the vow as a movie star, he had a short career as a stripper. Out of that fun fact, director Steven Soderbergh has fashioned Magic Mike. It's not a biopic. The script by Reid Carolin simply uses a male strip club in Tampa...
By way of sleight-of-hand, Steven Soderbergh's 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...
Being that it’s a creation of Steven Soderbergh (Contagion, Haywire), it should be no surprise that (like its titular character) Magic Mike is more than the superficial flesh-fest it may initially seem to be. Aside from being a witty reversal of the...
If your expectations for Magic Mike have been formed by the trailers and the TV ads, you can be forgiven for anticipating a male version of Showgirls or Coyote Ugly. Keep in mind, however, that the director is Steven Soderbergh, not Paul Verhoeven...
Magic Mike is meant to be Channing Tatum's film. The young star co-produced the movie, which is loosely based on his own experiences making ends meet by moonlighting as a stripper. But it's the film's more seasoned, appropriately fading beefcake...
The A.V. Club
There’s no denying that Magic Mike is a film about the world of male stripping. Filled with naked, muscular flesh and screaming fans clamoring for more of it, it’s planted firmly in the world of men who enact over-the-top fantasies of masculinity to...
Magic Mike is a well made, entertaining drama with a strong script and lively performances from Tatum and McConaughey. Needless to say, the film will play brilliantly to its target audience, but there's plenty here to enjoy either way. Recommended.
Magic Mike เป็นโปรเจ็คเริ่มต้นมาจาก Channing Tatum ดาราหนุ่มไฟแรงที่อยากหยิบประสบการณ์เมื่อครั้งเขาเคยเป็นนักเต้นระบำเปลื้องผ้าก่อนที่จะเข้าวงการมาเล่าเป็นหนัง และได้ดึงตัวผู้กำกับ Steven Soderbergh (จาก Ocean's Eleven, Twelve และ Thirteen) มาร่วมงานด้วย
Fifteen years after The Full Monty male strippers are big at the box office office again thanks to Magic Mike (a big hit in the US) but we’re not talking a few malnourished Northerners summoning up the courage for a quick reveal.
Barely five minutes in and Channing Tatum’s derriere is on display, chiselled to perfection for his turn as Magic Mike’s titular character. “Already?” gasped the girl sitting next to me. Yep. That’s what this film is all about – buttocks served taut.
Channing Tatum lays himself bare in more ways than one in this delightful, surprise package of a movie about male strippers. Despite having to get his kit off at regular intervals, his turn as Magic Mike is his least self-conscious performance to date...
Magic Mike sets its audience up with expectatigic Mike sets its audience up with expectations of a fairly simple comedy with bonus perve-factor, then slips in something a little more special, kind of like someone tucking a $50 note into your G-string.
In case you still have the archaic notion that striptease is an indulgence for the male gender alone, ‘Magic Mike’ is here to correct your impression once and for all. The titular character is one self-described entrepreneur- played by Channing...
“Magic Mike” อาจจะจัดว่าเป็นหนังที่ผู้ชมกลุ่มสาวๆตั้งหน้าตั้งตารอคอยมากที่สุดเรื่องหนึ่งของปีนี้ซึ่งไม่แปลกเพราะมองจากเหล่านักแสดงชายในเรื่องที่พร้อมใจกันมาสวมบทหนุ่มนักเต้นเปลื้องผ้าสุดเร่าร้อน แต่ถ้าคุณคิดว่าหนังมีดีแค่นั้นแล้วล่ะก็...
The Charlotte Observer
It’s no great stretch to imagine the chiseled, hot-footed hottie Channing Tatum as a stripper. It’s how he got his start in show business, after all.
If the only role Channing Tatum is capable bringing anything like charisma, humanism and likeability to is an aging male stripper, we still get a good movie out of it and that is almost worth all of the “Dear Johns” in the world.
Sacramento News & Review
An experienced male stripper (Channing Tatum) takes a feckless young slacker (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing, teaching him the ropes of exotic dancing while developing a cautious flirtation with the kid’s skeptical older sister (Cody Horn).
Mike's got a day job as a roofer. But under the hot sun of Tampa, Fla., it's not a job he's eager to go to most days. So Mike is trying to reinvent himself as an entrepreneur, slowing putting together his start-up costs from his cash-only night job.
At Xquisite—an all-male strip club in Tampa, Florida—there’s a flavor of fantasy for every female customer: Tarzan, hot cops, a Ken doll brought to life. As its owner Dallas (Matthew McConaughey) preaches to his im-pec-able performers...
Written by, directed by, and costarring the wildly successful Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane as the voice of the title character, Ted is defiantly what-you-see-is-what-you-get: a proudly coarse idiot comedy in which Mark Wahlberg plays...
Florida, no matter how old you are, is where you go to feel younger, whether it's retirees recreating summer camp with long days full of games or twenty-somethings reliving the days of spring break with all-nighters at the club.
Channing Tatum held a number of odd jobs before he became a matinee idol, including a brief stint as a male stripper which he might not exactly be proudest of. But rather than deny that embarrassing detour on the road to superstardom, the hunky...
Think you want to see this one for all the naked butts? All the titillating man-tits? Then the joke's on you. Think you don't want to see this one for the same reasons? Then the joke's on you, too.

Steven Soderbergh is an experimental filmmaker. Not that he makes video installations with trippy visuals and no narrative; rather, he experiments with what sort of stories cinema can be used to tell.
After January's Haywire, director Steven Soderbergh revives another genre, the '80s beefcake buffet, with better results than could have been expected. Based on Channing Tatum's experiences working as a stripper in the early-aughts, the plot concerns...
I don’t know what fundamentally audacious change has been wreaked in the career plan of Matthew McConaughey, once the lazily handsome love interest in so many a forgettable rom-com, but it’s interesting to watch.
The final act has an inevitable wavering patch when the film is obliged to tut-tut about the shallowness of the stripping, drinking, bantering, carousing and whooping it has previously enjoyed, but this is terrific entertainment with a sideline in wry...
ONE OF the really pleasant things about the new Katy Perry movie is how squeaky clean it is.Considering it’s a 21st century rock and roll story about a giant world tour and Russell Brand, it could almost have starred the Julie Andrews from Mary Poppins.

It used to be said that the difference between British defeatism and self-deprecation and American optimism and self-belief could be seen in the TV shows Yes Minister and The West Wing. The Brits are fundamentally absurd and the Americans are basically...
Shadows on the Wall
Despite the corny premise, Soderbergh works overtime to avoid cliches in this gleefully fleshy story of male strippers based loosely on Tatum's own experiences. As a result, it's smarter and more engaging than expected, although not as much fun as we...
There was once a time when I referred to Channing Tatum as a “human hatstand,” so unimpressed I was with his lumbering screen presence and seeming lack of personality. There was also a time when I had not seen his bare ass, and I am glad to report that...
Time Out London
American filmmaker Steven Soderbergh has been threatening to retire. But no auteur’s career is complete, it now seems, until he has coaxed an Oscar-worthy dry hump out of Channing Tatum. Nor until he’s directed men in trenchcoats doing things to...
For a star who was once arrested for naked bongo-playing, a bongo-playing male stripper might seem a role to avoid. Yet for Matthew McConaughey, signing up to play strip-club owner Dallas Rising, self-crowned overlord of “the cock-rocking kings of Tampa”
