Magic Mike recently entered my life for me to check out. Unfortunately, not the real live Magic Mike, just the movie. Just as I suspected ladies, this is a great girls’ night in flick! Product received for review. Post contains affiliate links.
If you are into hot guys I highly doubt I need to tell you anything about this movie. Just in case, here is a synopsis…
Magic Mike Synopsis:
A dramatic comedy set in the world of male strippers, Magic Mike is directed by Academy Award® winner Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) and stars Channing Tatum in the title role. The film follows Mike as he takes a young dancer called The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money.
I happened to watch this movie while I was sick as a dog with a cold. Seems to be the only time I could make time to watch anything. Turns out that a little man candy is pretty darn good for a runny nose. 😉 That sounds gross, but it really did keep my mind off my sickness.
Just as I suspected this movie is more than just hotties dancing around in their thongs. Not that I would have complained if it was, but there’s a nice storyline, too. Channing Tatum (recently named Sexiest Man Alive) plays Magic Mike. His lifestyle is something that he considers a means to an end. His real passion is creating custom furniture and dreams to make that his career. He takes a young stripper “apprentice” under his wing who immediately gets a taste of the wild side that can come along with the nightlife lifestyle. Of course, this presents challenges and obstacles. Without giving too much away, there’s also a love interest, which leads to a nice “love story” addition.
Although Channing Tatum is the main dish in this film, definitely do not overlook the other fine actors. Matt Bomer is just scrumptious and I have a new appreciation for Joe Manganiello for sure. I already had a mini-crush on him from True Blood, but day-um. They all did a great job at their roles!
Overall, I really enjoyed the movie. I look forward to watching it again without the Kleenex and with my girlfriends!
