Mike is a pretty industrious dude, working construction by day and working as a stripper by night to help jump start his new furniture design company. When a ne'er-do-well coworker asks for help getting into his club, and finds himself onstage alongside him, Mike soon takes the punk under his wing on journey through the fast lane while falling for his beautiful, overprotective sister. "Magic Mike" is a well-made film by eclectic director Steven Soderbergh which plays like A-level porn before settling down in its second half for a fairly solid character study. It pains me to say this, but Channing Tatum has an allure, and as with "21 Jump Street" he does a fine job carrying this film. Matthew McConaughey is strong as the sleazy club owner and Cody Horn gives the film a balance as Tatum's foil. Things start going in an interesting direction toward the end, which the filmmakers don't quite follow through on. This also might play better if you don't see it in a theater full of ravenous, shrieking, sex starved females.
