Mike Lane is a thirty-year old living in Tampa,Florida. By day he works as a roofer whilst at night, as Magic Mike, he is the star attraction of the Kings of Tampa, a group of male strippers. Secretly he wants out in order to further a projected furniture-making business but his credit rating precludes a bank loan for this despite his considerable savings. One night Adam, a teen-aged work-mate of Mike, follows him to the club and, when one of the acts is unable to go on,he is prevailed upon to strip - becoming a huge hit. However success goes to his head and his foolish actions not only threaten to jeopardize his sister Brooke's relationship with Mike but Mike's ambitions as well. Written by

Apart from the fantastic backside of Channing Tatum this film was a waste of 7 pounds. It has been hyped in the press recently and I thought it looked like funny film but no, I was met with a film with no storyline, events that came from nowhere and overall I would rather watch reruns of the care-bears than witness this again. I mean come on Channing Tatum? Matthew M-whatever? They have actually done some decent films, attractive men that had a chance of starring in a great film, where was the storyline guys? Because it clearly wasn't in any of your thongs? Upsides? Seeing some hot men strippers and having time to daydream and reflect on my life in the time the film was playing.
