Magic Mike is a fun, sexy summer film. Channing Tatum can act and dance. I liked him in this film a lot. Matthew McConaughey was the best in his role as a seedy, self-absorbed club owner. Both my mother and I laughed out loud when he was playing the bongo drums in the nude! (That's an Austin, Texas inside joke if you didn't get it.)
My mother and I couldn't decide who enjoyed the film more: a 56 year-old grandmother or a 31 year old gay man. The audience was full of women of all ages and just a few men. The important thing is that my mother and I had fun together! Mom, you can pick the next movie we see together.
