Meet Magic Mike (Channing Tatum). He's one of the most popular and successful performers in the world of male stripping - though Mike prefers to describe himself as an entrepreneur working in a cash-based business. The attractions, he explains, are obvious: "women, money and a good time". And now he's teaching awkward young protégé The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) the ropes at the Xquisite club owned by charismatic southerner Dallas (Matthew McConaughey). But when Mike falls for The Kid's sister, Brooke (Cody Horn), his profession becomes a complication. He also begins to realise that he wants something more out of life.

If you don't like seeing half naked men them please don't go by this point! Naughty movie trailer and photos ahead. You have been warned hehe.

My Thoughts:

HAHAHA, NAKED MEN, NAKED MEN, MAKED MEN. Oh and I forgot to mention NAKED MEN!!!!!

Oh Lordy!! I went on Saturday night with Emma from BelleBooks and Lesley from My Keeper Shelf to see this movie. I have been looking forward to it A LOT since I first heard the Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfr were to be in a stripper movie and then the pictures came and of course the TWO trailers. As you can imagine it set my heart racing. And I think like every other female I know, I was so excited not for the story. WHO CARES but for those yummy yummy men taking their clothes off. I am not even ashamed to admit that. And I won't go on and on about this movie I would be here all day because even though I said I didn't care about the story was about. I was really surprised that when watching, the story was actually really good. Full of drama, sexy stripping and very very funny.

The casting for this is amazing. Channing Tatum as Mike is just oh my G. He has a body to die for and the moves this hunky man has, well...let's just say his wife his a lucky lucky lady ;) Alex as Adam "The Kid" fitted perfectly. I do have a major crush on Alex and yeah, I was in heaven. I know he has a really bad reputition in Hollywood but he is an amazing actor and sexy as hell. Matthew McConaughey? haha he is crazy! He is a born entertainer and his roll as Dallas was just awesome. As for the other strippers they don't really have big roles but they still bring it and stand out. Joe Manganiello as Big Dick Richie.....Seriously this sex god was born to be stripper haha. He has the most perfect body I have ever seen. And well his characters name speaks for itself. Matt Bomer as Ken he doesn't really have much of a part really. But he is one beautiful man and there is a scene that involves The Kid and two women (one his wife) that makes me think oh you are kinky which leads to go off topic .......

.....because Emma pointed out that she could see Matt Bomer as Christian Grey (Fifty Shades) and as soon as I seen Matt in action in the this movie I knew. I just know that he is Christian Grey. And yes, I know he is Gay but he is an actor and he would own that role if he was cast. He would still be perfect!!

And back on topic....where was I?? Oh yes Naked Strippers. There is a whole lot of cast in the movie but those are the ones who really stuck out to me. I wasn't really sure about the character Brooke (Adam's sister) Don't get me wrong I liked the casting, I thought Cody was cute and funny and the chemistry between Brooke and Mike is undeniable but I got a little bored with it. And the ending even though it was cute and a nice ending it could have been so much better.

So I have basically just rambled on about how yummy these men are and yes they are but the plot is actually awesome and I highly recommend this if you are looking for a night out with your friends. Maybe not if you are straight guy though lol. Don't think they will see the appeal. So on that now I am just going to leave you with some yummy pictures of the cast hehe.
Do you need anymore reason to go see this movie:?!?!?!?!


  1. I loved this movie! I really wasn't expecting much of a story, so I was surprised that there was some depth to it. My heart actually broke a little for Adam and how misguided he was and how much he clearly respected and admired Mike. NOT what I was expecting from a stripper movie, but for me it made it that much better. And OMG they were all so hot! That, of course, was the best part, but I thought it was an all-around enjoyable movie...which is why I've already seen it twice lol. Great review! :-)
