Loosely based on Channing Tatum’s days of banana hammocks and hurricane parties working as a stripper in Florida; Magic Mike went and surprised everyone by being a real, honest-t0-goodness movie. Headed up by Steven Soderbergh, the film follows Mike as he works the Tampa strip scene building up a nest egg to start a business of his own. The problem is he works under a club-owner named Dallas whose in the game more for himself than the health and well-being of his boys; and Mike finds himself in trouble when Dallas’s influence starts taking a toll on Mike’s young-buck protegee.
