Magic Mike
Steven Soderbergh tackles the world of male strippers in this surprisingly competent and engaging drama. Channing Tatum continues to prove that he’s more than a monosyllabic lunkhead as the likable hero of the title, who brings young upstart Alex Pettyfer into his fold of six-pack wielding ladykillers, only to fall for The Kid’s sister (Cody Horn) and have everything go pear-shaped. The star of the show, however, is Matthew McConaughey as the troupe leader, Dallas, who kicked off a stellar “McConnaissance” in 2012 with this flamboyant display of peacocking metrosexuality.
