Magic Mike


Male stripper Mike Lane (Channing Tatum) introduces Adam (Alex Pettyfer), a 19-year-old slacker, to his craft; “The Kid” becomes a hit, but keeping him away from trouble is more of a challenge. A story that was based on Tatum’s own past as a stripper in Tampa, and his charm is one reason to watch the movie. Steven Soderbergh keeps it snappy and entertaining for a long while, and Matthew McConaughey is clearly having fun as the cocky owner of the Xquisite strip club‚Ķ but every clich√© here is easily predicted and some of the acting is less than stellar.

2012-U.S. 110 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed, photographed and edited by Steven Soderbergh. Cast: Channing Tatum (Mike Lane), Matthew McConaughey (Dallas), Alex Pettyfer (Adam), Cody Horn, Olivia Munn, Matt Bomer.

Trivia: Jessica Biel was allegedly considered for a role. Followed by Magic Mike XXL (2015).
