Dir: Steven Soderbergh
With: Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Olivia Munn
Running time: 110 minutes
IN Magic Mike, a comedy drama set in the world of male stripping, one need only wait a minute or two before the first of many bare male bahookies parades across the screen. This sight is followed in due course by shots of oiled pecs, thrusting groins, and more leather chaps and chaps in leather than you'll find at an alternative rodeo.
