Mike, an experienced stripper, takes a younger performer called The Kid under his wing and schools him in the arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money.
Magic Mike is deceptively exhilarating and ingeniously introspective, fully realizing a gleefully energized world while simultaneously illuminating the flaws of its dynamic structure. Ravishing, seductive, and stunningly gorgeous; the mood of Magic Mike contrasts with the material for its "intended" audience, maneuvering through opaque feeling rather than the organized deliriousness of stripping. Well, there's a little of that, but don't worry uptight viewers, this will enthrall anyone.
I'M STILL A MAN EVERYBODY. NO SHAME, NO SHAME AT ALL.
Alright, alright, alright.
Despite the positive word of mouth the thought of a Steven Soderbergh male stripper movie never sounded appealing and the end results were as disappointing as expected. I can only assume that the film was well received purely because people got to see Hollywood celebrities wear very little clothing and grind their crotches in women’s faces because it certainly wasn’t because of the story. As with all of Soderbergh’s recent films, Magic Mike, feels incomplete. Sub plots are started and then briefly explored before being abandoned entirely, characters are given the scantest development (just like their wardrobe) and it generally lacks any real drive or interesting central focus.
For the second film running, Matthew McConaughey steals the show. His turn…
It ain't no Showgirls, that's for sure!
Magic Mike, how do I loathe thee, let me count the ways.
1. Channing Tatum. I don’t know why, but images of David Hassleholf spring to mind whenever I see you onscreen.. Perhaps it’s your simian acting style. I guess you thought your real-life stripper story was going to be the next Rocky, and that you had the heart and soul ( and talent ) to pull it off on screen. I’m sure you did. What I see is a popular High School quarterback in the school play. Sure, it sells tickets, but it’s embarrassingly awful to watch.
2. Cody Horn. You deliver about as much charisma and emotion as a Stepford Wife on prosaic. Your dad being the chairman…
A couple things I realized while watching this:
1) I was right in my assumption that thrusting my pelvis into a woman's face is a total turn on for her.
2) I just need to stop watching Soderbergh's movies.
I know that I am completely alone in my total ennui towards this guy, and I'm cool with that. But how did he elevate this material? By shooting everything through a doo doo-stained filter like he always does? I could put on Coyote Ugly and mess with the color controls for that, thanks.
Okay, so maybe he toned down the visual flair to focus on working with the actors to create interesting characters. Let's see, Matthew McConaughey's portrayal of Matthew McConaughey…
I am torn.
This is possibly one of the worst films I've ever seen. I wanted to walk out 20 minutes in, by 40 minutes in I rued having had that coffee that was preventing a good snooze, and by the 90 minute mark I was angry that it hadn't ended yet. I came out declaring that next to Pauline at the Beach this was definitely the worst I'd seen. There were a few interesting camera shots and McConaughey was fantastic, but his performance stood out like a sore thumb, most of the dialogue was inane and the audio mix was terrible in too many spots to count.
And yet, there was something nagging me about the structure of the…
"It's entrepre-neur, actually. It's, uh, French."
Channing Tatum is a charisma machine put on this planet to make ordinary men look meager and weak.
This movie wasn't completely terrible but I will admit it was totally watchable. Not my thing at all, but there was a moment or two that got a small chuckle from me. And it managed to make me stick through the whole thing even though it was almost 6 am before I finished watching. And that's saying something. But really the only reason why I even watched it was solely due to someone telling me this was similar to Boogie Nights in tone & structure. Now I see where they were coming from SLIGHTLY, but Magic Mike respectfully has its own identity. Which is a great thing and what made it not terrible. Now years ago I always thought I wouldn't…
My pussy was dry this entire movie (and this is coming from a girl who loves her gringos)
Well, for roofers, they certainly didn’t do a lot of roofing in this.
i can't believe i actually liked this :o
too much plot for this specific situation
Give me Bullock any day.
It's so easy to watch films as infectiously unaffected by life as those of Soderbergh, Magic Mike may be his easiest to watch. Just another portrait of aging careerists in a fickle industry overrun by the young generation but in this case it's a lose/lose situation. Incredible in retrospect that Magic Mike XXL manages to be as affirming as it is considering the ultimate hopelessness undercutting everything within this.
Alright so i had really low expectations for this, i can actually say that they were blown away. So yes i enjoyed this i should say that i didn't care for the dancing but i liked most of the story element's and just what happens. It goes from a "comedy" to a drama i wasn't really expecting. I really liked Adam (Alex Pettyfer) and his story arc, for the first half it was based on him (or so it seemed). The second half (really just the last 30 minutes) was based on Mike (Channing Tatum) that really seemed strange for me. The really super duper forced romance pissed me off like it always does, this one even more because they have zero chemistry. Overall i enjoyed this but it does have many problems, like how the story goes from about Adam to the super forced romance. I would give Magic Mike a "7/10"

Since I recently saw "The Nice Guys", and loving the fact that they opened the film with the old 70s…
