2012: McConaughey uses his dancing physique to mask the vile alpha male working for and against Channing Tatum and his club of male strippers.

After the first ten minutes I began to fear the movie was going to be gratuitous sexuality with a lame story, but I was glad to see it quickly turn around. Channing Tatum as "Magic Mike" was a stellar leading character with super sick dance moves haha, Matthew McConaughey was really fun and fired up as "Dallas", and "The Kid" and his sister round out the ensemble which made for a somewhat surprisingly meaningful story worth being told

No, this isn't a "good" movie....

And Matthew McConaughey has been ruined forever for me...

But I laughed so hard in a couple of places that I nearly peed my pants...

My wife enjoyed it. So it is mission accomplished for me.

.... Yes. And the show must go on.... And the clothes must come off....

So, if you're someone who honestly thinks that having Channing Tatum's ass-crack in your face is really the total highlight of worthwhile entertainment - Then, yep, this yawn-a-minute thumb-twiddler about the snivelling pettiness of male strippers is sure to delight you from start to finish.

And, with keeping that in mind - I'm sure you can easily understand why I found Mike (and his bare-assed buddies) to be "less-than-magic" in every aspect imaginable. In fact, I found this pretentious, empty-headed drivel became real tiresome, real fast.

From plenty of utterly asinine dialogue, to complex dance numbers requiring no rehearsal time at all, to a brain-dead "boy-meets-girl" soap opera (thrown in for good measure) - I ask you - How the hell did this crap movie ever warrant itself a sequel?

P.S. - Of course, finding out that "Magic Mike's" star, Channing Tatum, co-produced this forgettable flatulence certainly helped me to understand why such white-trash storytelling as this took the pointless direction that it did.

Very poor. Even stripping and drugs can be made dull and lifeless. McConaughey will not remember this one with any pleasure I'm sure.

I think Channing Tatum is very attractive and a succesfull actor. He has a bright future.

Even the dancing is cringe-inducing.

Sadly, this film did not live up to any of its hype. A complete waste of time that took me three attempts to even get through it. Even the "eye candy" left a lot to be desired.

I didn't notice any out of focus or blurriness to the camera at all, the story line is a little lacking - but I'm going to say that, that isn't the draw to this movie - THE HALF NAKED MEN ARE. Don't be looking for a deep and involved story line here, because you are not going to get it. If you just want to relax and enjoy yourself, and watch some half naked guys dance for once instead of girls doing it, then this movie is for you.
