Ladies of the world, just watch some porn. I promise it's a lot more satisfying than Magic Mike.
October 2, 2017
While it is based in a kernel of a potentially compelling idea, Magic Mike feels rushed, unplanned and-pardon-half-assed.
June 28, 2012
It's as if Soderbergh expects the film to mostly resolve itself, rounded out by the asses-in-the-seats appeal of the material, rote thematic underpinning, and ample charms of the cast.

June 28, 2012
While the ads are selling it as a romp (and crowds include Girls' Night Out groups), the movie turns in some grim but too obvious directions.

July 29, 2012
After its overly drawn out introduction (featuring far too much stripping), the movie rushes in its final stages.

June 28, 2012
Soderbergh's creative shot composition and off-kilter pacing elevate some of the story's prosaic elements, but he doesn't take enough narrative or stylistic chances.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 28, 2012
Riddled with show-biz clichés, stick-figure studs and re-heated ideas, Magic Mike thrusts its junk in your face despite having a very empty G-string.
July 2, 2012
Shows some life onstage, but off is dull soap opera.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 5, 2012
While (director Soderbergh) does fine work with what he's given, it ultimately amounts to little of substance. You may be able to pad a stripper's pouch but not this film's barely mediocre script.

A vanilla panorama of beefcake for rent
July 12, 2012
While watching "Magic Mike," which plunges into the false glamour of male strippers, you search in vain for a reason why you're there.

June 27, 2012
[It feels] curiously rudderless, its off-stage journey pale and enervated in contrast with the cheesy, ebullient dance numbers it makes room for.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
June 30, 2012
Too long and dramatically flaccid. It's well-shot and initially compelling, but ultimately suffers from style over substance.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.69
June 26, 2012
The few moments wherein Magic Mike calls American institutions into question are undercut and overshadowed by the film's dated insistence on the dream of legitimacy.
June 29, 2012
Horrible. No story, overt homoeroticism, and the death-knell for McConaughey. Is this the same director who did the fabulous HAYWIRE?
July 21, 2012
On the scale of chick flicks, Magic Mike is probably a 10, combining large quantities of male stripping action in a nightclub setting and a soppy romantic tale
June 29, 2012
This is destined to be either embraced as "real" and "authentic" or condemned as lacking a certain erotic quality, especially in the man meat department.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 29, 2012
Soderbergh pulls out every trick in the book to make Magic mean something beyond its parade of shaved backs and tanned buttocks, but it's a lost cause, endeavoring to bring meaning to material best appreciated for its surface appeal.

Target missed, opportunity lost.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
July 14, 2012
Steven Soderbergh's guilty-pleasure for sexually frustrated housewives fails to accomplish its modest thematic aspirations.
