Once you get past the thongs, the uniforms, and the sleek choreographed stripping dance routines -- admittedly, the main attraction of Magic Mike for most audiences -- it's just another day at the office for Steven Soderbergh

The sexy mischief and the darkness and the earnest character beats all fit together in one terrifically entertaining, perfectly pitched success.

Raucous, funny and disgracefully entertaining.

Musings on the nature of capitalism wrapped in a very pretty package ... Magic Mike is a film for adventurous audiences of all persuasions.

Some wildly entertaining dancing (and stripping) underscores several impressive performances.

Steven Soderbergh has made a movie that works as both intimate character study and party film.

Magic Mike takes a familiar story and transforms it into something modern, unique and beautiful to look at (and I'm not just talking beefcakes, here).

I never imagined that I would see The Full Monty re-envisioned by the Oscar winning director of Erin Brokovich and Traffic. But yup, here you have it: Steven Soderberg has created his stripping opus.

Magic Mike is far from perfect, but that's the fun. Whether you think Soderbergh is winking at the audience or the movie is "so bad it's good," Magic Mike is one heck of a good time at the movies.

It's good to have another Soderbergh movie, and one that's completely different from anything he's done before. But beneath the magic, "Mike" is ultimately meh.

Soderbergh lets scenes develop in a raw, natural way that makes the stripping scenes hilariously entertaining to watch

It's "Showgirls" for girls, but with its camp knob tuned to a much more tolerable and skilled frequency... It's pretty awesome

Magic Mike is just fun, and it's fun because it's good.

I was gunning for Showgirls only as Show Boys. Instead director Steven Soderbergh did something normal and classy, which are two words I associate with his other films and did not want to describe this film.

Reigning men on a physical, philosophical and psychological level, Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike also completes the transformation of Channing Tatum from mumbling toy-boy to thinking man's beefcake.

As Mike, Tatum is a pillar of integrity, a hard-working stud with his eyes on the end game.

... the director, the unpredictable Steven Soderbergh, gives the clichés a surface gloss of credibility.

What works in the movie are its cast, locale, and unique milieu. We're shown the behind-the-scenes workings ... the same way we become privy to the workings of wrestling in The Wrestler, although it's obviously much, much more fun being a stripper.
