Consensus: Magic Mike's sensitive direction, smart screenplay, and strong performances allow audiences to have their beefcake and eat it too.

Soderbergh has created a spicy yet lucid, surgingly high-energy yet smartly modernistic musical.

Chicago Reader

The dance numbers, choreographed by Allison Faulk, are inventive and athletic, but not really erotic; Soderbergh never lets you forget that, for these men, dancing is above all a job.

Once you get past the thongs, the uniforms, and the sleek choreographed stripping dance routines -- admittedly, the main attraction of Magic Mike for most audiences -- it's just another day at the office for Steven Soderbergh

Wall Street Journal

Tatum, whose talents have been the subject of debate, also makes Mike genuinely affecting, not to mention articulate within the bounds of a sketchy script.

Magic Mike has a conventional structure, yet a teasing question percolates beneath: If selling yourself is as much fun as this movie makes it look, what could be wrong with it?

Badass Digest

The sexy mischief and the darkness and the earnest character beats all fit together in one terrifically entertaining, perfectly pitched success.

Does a better job of mixing Chippendales-style guilty pleasures with reality-based cautionary tales than you might expect.

It is all that could be expected by a film like this! Just like the subject matter - cheesy and questionable! lol

Classic Sodebergh dialog. The pacing is a bit odd, but so is reality, and I think that's basically the point. Despite Mathhew Moconaghey(sp.) having a… More
