Well, where should I begin. I knew this film was going to be pretty sexy, but I still wasn’t prepared for the heat that Magic Mike gives rises to. Four extremely hot strippers? Hell yes. From the very first time I saw the trailer, I knew that this was a film I had to see. When I found out that Magic Mike is in fact, in part, based up Channing Tatum’s own experiences as a 19 year old stripper, I was even more intrigued by this film. Whilst on the surface this may look like a superficial film designed to attract women to their local cinemas for a legalised strip show, there are actually some deeper themes explored within this movie. Tatum’s character is one who is only in the stripping industry to earn money so that he can start up his own business, so it’s not all about women, money and sex.
