This is a kind of movie to watch with girlfriends over pajamas party, where everyone can giggle or even laugh out loud without feeling shy. Too bad, I watched it alone last night and no one else to giggle with, haha… Keep this away from teens and kids though!

“Magic Mike” was made based on real life experience of Channing Tatum, who used to work as male stripper before his Hollywood career was launched. Mike (Tatum) is an entrepreneur who does variety of odd day jobs including furniture remodeling, car detailing and roofing, while at night he is the star stripper at Xquisite strip bar.

“You are the husband they never had! You are that dreamboat guy that never came along!”

Mike is already 30 year old, although he’s the star of the show, he’s not getting younger. Dallas (McConaughey), the bar owner, keeps promising of a bright future for him, but still refusing to let Mike takes shares on the business. The Magic Mike is on the crossroads to decide what he really wants for his future.

The movie is on the full speed of entertaining female audience, I am not sure how the male ones would take this. It’s cheeky and obviously refreshing to see so many fresh six packs with such moves. It has a good-feel story too with a charming Mike no one could resist.

I wonder what Tatum’s wife think, every time she sees him every morning next to him muhahaha… Sluuurp!

My rating: 3.5/6

Don’t expect a well written story or drama or anything with depth. This is a movie packed with advance technique of bike riding around the busy traffic of NYC. Wilee (Joseph Gordon Levitt) is a bike messenger with mission to deliver an important envelope to the other side of the town. A dirty cop named Monday (Michael Shannon) intensively chased him for the same envelope. The story is pretty basic, but the chasing mission is thrilling! I love the adrenaline pumping rides, the bustling traffic to match with, and the persistence of both the dirty cop as well as the bike messengers. Chasing all way through.

My rating: 4/6
