Magic Mike is less strip than strip search, its aesthetic thrills giving way to a probing and deceptively simple study of characters wresting with their limitations.

... the real stand out is Matthew McConaughey, who throws himself into the role of stripper-turned-MC Dallas.

Despite my still-firm stance that real-life male exotic dancers are more humorous and depressing than sexy, the movie surprised me.

Magic Mike might not have a lot to say about its characters or the male stripping industry, but the flashing bottoms, pelvic thrusts and toned six-packs that Soderbergh does deliver sure are a lot of fun.

Matthew McConaughey uses the drawling, at times oily charm to play a low-rent impresario determined to move his weekend enterprise into prime-time Miami and he's superb, and yet it's Tatum who impresses here.

[A] perfect storm of marketability and smart, inventive avant-garde cinema - a resourceful character piece built upon a cacophony of cinematic contrast.

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
