Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Andie Anderson covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." They meet in a bar shortly after the bet is made.
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

If I were to watch it again, it would be on mute and I would FF to all the stripping scenes.
This movie has blinded people with lots of washboard abs. I was one of them, and I flocked to the theatre. While the stripping scenes were fun and well choreographed, that was the movies only good quality.
They had three plot lines going during the movie, all were not developed enough and it made the entire story scattered. Furthermore, they didn't give those story lines appropriate endings, so we just ended with breakfast and kissing and called it an effing day. What a waste.
Channing Tatum was okay in his role, but there were times where he stumbled over his words and I was left wondering if that was an error and poorly edited, or if it was left in to make it seem more natural.
The sound editing was weird to me, conversations from the upcoming scene began before the shot of the ending scene was over.
