I have a feeling a lot of DVD remote controls are going to get a workout on Tuesday, especially the rewind and pause buttons. Why? Because Magic Mike comes to DVD on October 23rd.
Set in Tampa, FL, the story tells about Mike, an entrepreneur and jack-of-all-trades by day, male stripper by night. He befriends Adam, a 19-year old kid who just doesn't seem to have a direction in life. Mike brings him into the world of stripping, where he finds his niche.
The film is fun to watch (especially with friends and drinks), even during some of the darker scenes that look into the world of drugs. The dance scenes are reason enough to watch though - Channing Tatum is a scene-stealer with his dancing. Joe Manganiello is hilarious as Big Dick Richie (fireman anyone?), Matt Bomer is the perfect Ken Doll, and Matthew McConaughey as former stripper and club owner, Dallas delivers punchlines with natural ease.
Mark your calendars for October 23rd, invite over some girlfriends, and have a fantastic time! Oh, and you should probably have an extra remote handy.
