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."
Despite the R-rating and the profanity and occasional violence to justify it, this is a truly warm and openly sweet movie about two unlikely friends and how their on-the-job crisis affects their relationship.
