Ryan McNeil’s review:
"MAGIC MIKE is ridiculous all around, but ridiculous in a way that befits its subject matter. I’m of the opinion that all stripping is absurd (sorry, “exotic dancing”), but the boys seem to raise it to a whole different absurdity level. They aren’t only up there to drop trou, they’re up there to bring women in on the action and get good and lewd. There’s nothing wrong with it, but when you watch such things you can’t help but laugh. This film is at its best when it understands this absurdity and plays it up. Between the various corny routines they take part in to all of the backstage shenanigans, all of the guys who have signed on for this movie dive head-first into the waters of sexual silliness..."
