The film isn't especially original and takes few real risks.

Steven Soderbergh's guilty-pleasure for sexually frustrated housewives fails to accomplish its modest thematic aspirations.

It's a good behind-the-scenes film that becomes a little ordinary in the end. Loved Matthew McConaughey, though I'm not convinced he knew the cameras were rolling.

When you realise how anodyne and banal the plot is becoming, it's a disappointment - but the plot is hardly the point.

Director Steven Soderbergh lays bare this tragically empty existence populated by lost souls. And a lot of toned male torsos.

While watching "Magic Mike," which plunges into the false glamour of male strippers, you search in vain for a reason why you're there.

But after a raunchy ad campaign will director Steven Soderbergh's strip show prove to be an entertaining expose or a disappointing cover-up?

Like all Soderbergh's best films, from sex, lies, and videotape onwards, Magic Mike is a kind of interactive text.

It's a well-handled, engaging, lightweight picture.

Magic Mike is raucous, often ludicrously indecent and quite likely to send home women home thinking they've just had the cheapest hen night out in history.

It finds its charm not so much in originality as in sly dialogue; cinematography as slinky and energetic as its dance routines; and two very effective lead turns.

There's a lot more than banana hammocks and vigorous thrusting ...

A magnificent hybrid of clever and comical that very few directors could pull off.

Impressively directed and superbly edited, this is a hugely entertaining drama with a strong script and terrific performances from Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey...

The cast are terrific. McConaughey's a law unto himself as the semi-crazed ringmaster and he gets his own show-stopping moment on stage.

It represents a triumph of Hollywood marketing, which has successfully presented it as the ultimate girls'-night-out flick. But is it a triumph for the director?

A mess of Soderberghian devices so dense that it must surely be considered his definitive work.
