This is definitely not a movie with substance. This is the type of mindless movie you go and see with some girlfriends. The movie has one thing going for it: the gorgeous lead actors. They are clearly the draw to the movie. I wish that there would have been more love involved with the movie. I'm glad I saw it-a fun mindless escape, with funny moments (and hot actors!)
Like C said, Magic Mike is not a movie you want to see if you're looking for a deep and meaningful plot, conflict, solution, ect. Lets be honest- the reason why you go to see it is because of the men. To me, this movie felt very much like a night out with my friends. 'Ooh'ing and 'aah'ing throughout the movie was a common occurrence and was, in fact, encouraged. There were moments of laughter here and there. There is even a mini love plot thrown in there. And seriously...Channing Tatum has some major stripper skills. Trust me. Go see it.
