Magic Mike could have easily become a mockery. After all, a film about male strippers released at the height of the Fifty Shades of Grey frenzy is hard to take seriously. The result was pure entertainment.
The film is loosely based on the experiences of Tatum, who was an year-old stripper in Tampa, Florida. Magic Mike was filmed in several locations around west central Florida. The film premiered as the closing film for the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 24, , and was widely released by Warner Bros. Mike Channing Tatum has big plans for a business of his own but pays his bills through a series of odd jobs, most notably performing as the star stripper at Xquisite Strip Club in Tampa, a club owned by Dallas Matthew McConaughey , who has dreams of creating an "empire" of strip clubs. Mike soon meets year-old Adam Alex Pettyfer , a recent college dropout looking for a construction job. Mike takes Adam under his wing and encourages him to begin stripping at Xquisite. Mike is introduced to Adam's sister Brooke Cody Horn. Despite his on-and-off relationship with a woman named Joanna Olivia Munn , Mike finds himself attracted to Brooke and promises to look after Adam. Adam falls further into the excessive lifestyle of the Xquisite dancers, using drugs and having sexual encounters with many clients. When Dallas announces he has a plan to move their act to Miami , Mike confides in Brooke that he is tiring of the lifestyle and wants to get a small business loan to pursue his dream of opening a custom furniture business.

After revealing that Dallas has bailed on them to start a new show in Macau and only took "The Kid" referencing Adam from Magic Mike with him, the Kings let Mike in on their plan: to end their careers on a high note by traveling to Myrtle Beach for a stripping convention.
I don't really care if she's religious or not, unless she brings it up all the time or tries to convert me. That said, I would be fully aware that Mormonism is going to compel even the best of them to do some truly horrendous stuff at times. I just happened upon your blog I'm a doctor's wife as well - rural family medicine and I just wanted to agree with you that "have no expectations" is awesome advice. I feel pretty awful about that whole thing.
