Magic mike reviews

  • From "Fifty Shades of Grey" to the upcoming "Magic Mike" movie, this summer certainly seems to be a hot one for female fans in need of some racy fun.
  • (Examiner)
  • A mellow, low-slung charm propels "Magic Mike," Steven Soderbergh's film starring Channing Tatum as a male stripper that is partly based on Tatum's real-life experience.
  • (Washington Post)
  • Magic Mike, the much-anticipated movie directed by Steven Soderbergh, is finally here. To find out if it's any good, Ramin Setoodeh went to see it with a panel of experts—five professional male strippers.
  • (Daily Beast)
  • Critics think its pretty good. Seventy percent of the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes are favorable and 63 percent on MovieReviewIntelligence are positive. Metacritic gives it a 61 rating.
  • (YAHOO!)
  • If you enjoy music, dancing, role reversal and psychological conflict, you will enjoy this movie. Our hero, Adam, finally gets a construction job, where he meets Mike.

  • It seems that when it comes to online movie ticket sales at least, sex certainly does sell. According to a recent report from Fandango this Tuesday night, the male stripper film "Magic Mike" is at the top of pre-sale tickets so far this week.
  • (Examiner)
  • But what Duralde found derivative, The San Francisco Chronicles Mick LaSalle found fresh and exciting.
  • (TheWrap)
  • Magic Mike is a stripper and also kind of a liar. Ads for the new Channing Tatum movie would have us believe its a male take on Flashdance, with glitzy stripper routines punctuated by romantic comedy scenes of people sunbathing and laughing.
  • (Pioneer Press)
  • He is very likable in the role, as the Post's Ann Hornaday notes in her review of the film. But with all due respect to Channing Tatum, for my money, he is not the most compelling guy in "Magic Mike.
  • (Washington Post)
  • Mike's got a day job, as a roofer. But in Tampa, under that sun, it's not a job he's eager to go to most days. So Mike is trying to reinvent himself as an entrepreneur, slowing putting together his start-up costs from his cash-only night job.
