"Magic Mike"
Director Steven Soderbergh's "Magic Mike" is loosely based on Channing Tatum's early life as a male dancer and features the actor in the title role. Mike dances at the Xquisite Club in Florida. It's run by Dallas (Matthew McConaughey) and features a lot of buff men who dance and drive the female customers crazy. Mike takes a new dancer Adam (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing and shows him how to make money and win over their female fans.

Adam likes his new lifestyle, but things start to spin out of control. At the same time, Mike wants to live a normal life and falls for Adam's sister Brooke (Cody Horn) while still trying to see if his situation with girlfriend Joanna (Olivia Munn) will work out. Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello costar in this fun-filled film with good dance numbers and music that rocks.
