Channing Tatum is Magic Mike. Magic Mike is a stripper (with some serious Marky Mark moves), who dreams of designing furniture. And so on… Somehow I don’t think the plot is the main selling point in this Steven Soderbergh’s (Traffic, Ocean’s Eleven) take on male strippers with dreams.
Will Magic Mike succeed where Showgirls and Striptease failed? Considering the fact that it was inspired by Channing Tatum’s real-life experience as a stripper, it should have some subsistence. If not, it certainly has a lot of abs and very few clothes.
