    Magic Mike slowly degenerates into a simplistic cautionary fable. I didn't see that coming from a sharp observer like Soderbergh. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    If it falls short of greatness, it's not by much - and it could end up growing with the years. At the very least, it is exceptional and one of the best and most original pictures to come along in 2012. show more

    Almost as impressive as Tatum's moves are his comic flair and breezy grace. He proved his comic talents earlier this year in "21 Jump Street" and shows them off winningly here. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The process is called acting, and the man (Tatum) in the title role of Steven Soderbergh's flashy, not-so-trashy entertainment does it so well that the debate should be officially ended. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    An odd and entertaining mix of backstage melodrama, indie verite, and "Showgirls" kitsch, the usual gender stereotypes are upturned. show more

    For starters, it's a pleasure to see Matthew McConaughey - a gifted actor who can't hide his boredom in trivial work - finally settle into the role for which he was born. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    The raunchiest, funniest and most enjoyably nonjudgmental American movie about selling sex since "Boogie Nights." show more

    The divide between Tatum as performer and Tatum as actor gives the film an interesting unsteadiness. show more

    As we face yet another summer of brooding superheroes, it's Magic Mike to the rescue! He's got the civilian alter ego and the acrobatic skills to rival Spidey or Batman. show more

    One of the pleasures of Magic Mike is its egalitarian spirit and dedication to the ensemble. show more

    HORRIBLE MOVIE! Thought it would be fun and flirty movie to go see with girlfriends, it was not! The beginning yes then it went south quickly! The romance was awful the story line was terribly written the acting well I didn\'t expect the acting to be good but the gross naked women, the pig vomit!

    The previews were the best part of the movie. Terrible acting by some cast members, thin story line and the ending leaves you wondering what happened to others in the story line. Very disappointed.

    This was a soft porn show. Channing is a great dancer and actor. He can do better. I was very disappointed in Matthew \'s part.

    I really thought the movie was a good story about a person\'s matter what kind of job it is! I will buy the DVD when it comes out. It also was very entertaining!!! Good chose for the characters...there is nothing wrong in real men watching the movie. It is a for sure chick flick!
