Mike Lane is a thirty-year old living in Tampa,Florida. By day he works as a roofer while 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

Actress Cody Horn played Channing Tatum's love interest named Brooke in the film, coincidentally she played a girl named Brooke in one episode of White Collar which starred Matt Bomer who plays Ken in this film. See more »
During "It's Raining Men" Ken slides his suspenders off twice in successive shots. See more »
So many elements that could have made this a truly original movie.
Instead it's confusing, meandering and ultimately pointless. Alex
Pettyfer, the innocent entering the world of male strippers has a good
face a great body but lacks life, yes, that's it, he's kind of
lifeless. Channing Tatum, whose story, apparently, this is, has a body
that seems to have been shaped by a genius, but a face that looks
slightly unfinished. I didn't get his character at all. As an actor
Channing tries far too hard. Matthew McConaughey is a hoot, Great chest
and he seems to be relishing the spotlight. So, all in all,
entertaining and little, very little else.
