I have been on the record with my support of McConaughey for the Oscar since I saw this movie. Who else is on deck for this one? Robert De Niro? Philip Seymour Hoffman? That's nice. It's McConaughey's year.
Magic Mike was a fabulous movie if you're going to see it for the hot men stripping down to G-strings on stage. If you're expecting really great storytelling to go along with it you might be a bit disappointed.
Magic Mike turns the tables on the usual movies with women as sex objects, and does it in a way that has to strike a balance between raunchy and charming. If you buy the balance, Magic Mike finds "the sweet spot."
