Huffpo – The “Magic Mike” reviews are beginning to show some skin. One of summer’s most anticipated films, the stripper drama closed out the Los Angeles Film Festival on Sunday night, a mere five days before it hits theaters on June 29. Directed by Steven Soderbergh, “Magic Mike” is based on the early life experiences of star Channing Tatum, who was once a male stripper. The film details the highs and lows of the profession, with a cavalcade of hunky and manscaped actors (Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez and more) along for the ride.”['Magic Mike'] is arguably the raunchiest, funniest and most enjoyably nonjudgmental American movie about selling sex since ‘Boogie Nights,’ its obvious if considerably darker precursor,” wrote David Rooney in his positive review for The Hollywood Reporter.
Tweeted Variety reporter Jeff Sneider:
Let me state this loud and clear. If you are a straight heterosexual male and you go see Magic Mike than you are a gayball who likes dick in the ass. I don’t fucking care if you go with your wife, girlfriend or what. Nobody wants to see a bunch of male super hunks shoving their junk in your face for 2 straight hours. Like sorry honey not in the mood to get cuckholded today. Nope not going to see Magic Mike and watch all the chicks finger themselves in the movie theater while I’m eating the jumbo popcorn and large soda. Just not my scene. Fuck Magic Mike and those rock hard abs. Like I couldn’t look like that if I didn’t have a real job and could work out all day. I hope this movie tanks.
