'Magic Mike' getting good reviews: What's the best stripper movie?

 

If you're like us, when you first saw the ad for "Magic Mike," you thought, "Could this be any cheesier?" And your second thought was: "I get Channing Tatum, but did Matthew McConaughey really agree to be in this film?"

Believe it or not, it's getting good reviews. The film currently has a 79 percent critics' approval rating on rottentomatoes.com, with The Chicago Tribune's Michael Phillips giving it 3 1/2 stars. "Purest corn, 'Magic Mike' nonetheless has a human pulse and a sense of humor to go along with its willingness to entertain," Phillips writes, comparing it to "'Showgirls' with showboys, though without the hysteria or the punitive humiliation."

Of course, it helps that the film was helmed by esteemed director Steven Soderbergh, known for "Sex, Lies and Videotape," "Erin Brockovich," "Traffic" and "Ocean's Eleven." It was also inspired by Tatum's own experience as a male stripper.
