Awful, awful, awful, awful, awful. Have I mentioned that it was awful? Boring, poorly acted, and disappointing. Not nearly enough of the dancing scenes, which were the only, and I mean only good parts. Don't waste your money.

I knew from the first 5 minutes that I was in trouble when they had 4 establishing shots of Tampa all done from the back back of Magic Mikes truck. Shot from the right side, shot from the left side. Now another shot from the right. For good measure another shot from the left.
I don't know if it was supposed to be boring and mechanical as a critique of stripping?
Channing Tatum was charming and can dance. I would watch him read the phone book, it they still printed those.
If you must see this movie, wait till it is on DVD so you can forward through all the stupid shots of people walking into a scene.
2 and 1/2 hours and it was boring. I love Steven Soderbergh by the way. I didn't get if he was trying to say something with this. I did get a couple of chuckles, but it was when the rest of the theater was gasping.
I just don't see this as a mall movie. It needed to be tightened up!

Went to see Magic Mike with my girlfriends last night - it wasn't what I expected, but it was a GO. Of course there was OH SO plenty of eye candy and that was what I enjoyed the most!!!
I love Channing Tatum and his moves on the dance floor baby!!!!

Wow. I have never wanted to see a movie so much in my life until Magic Mike. I was clapping before it started! Channing Tatum is one of the most talented dancers I have ever watched, which is clearly seen in this movie. I couldn't decide which dance was my favorite, but I'm going to have to say that Raining Men was my favorite because of the dancing. The only thing that would keep me from seeing this movie would be if I could see the show LIVE! Love Channing Tatum! Excellent movie!

Matthew looks old in this movie. The love story was cute. The dancing was great, it made my girlfriends and I want to go to Vegas to find a real live show like this one. The ending came as a surprise to everyone in the theatre, came so quick and unexpected, bad ending. Some friends did not like the sex, threesomes and drugs but that just depends on the person some like that type of excitement in their lives some don't, guess what I thought? This movie is not for kids, don't take your mom either. A couple of women brought their spouses to see it, only 2 men in the house-not a good idea, this is a chick flick.
