Magic Mike looks to be this summer's movie that proves that women will go to the theater. I went on a Sunday night to my local theater, which usually means we've got a good shot of being the only people in the theater. This time, it was nearly full, with nary a man in sight. This continues to prove that if you make decent movies geared toward women, they will show up.
Off stage, Mike is trying to leverage the money he's made into a life he'd really like - building furniture. He lives in an awesome house on the beach in Tampa, seems to be making a pretty great life thanks to stripping. But he can't really get a break to move forward on a more legitimate career. Adam's sister Joanna is the voice of reason (and judgement) commenting on their changing lifestyles. Adam hasn't really adapted well to having money - he just wants more money, more women, and more drugs quick. And Joanna blames Mike. You can pretty much guess how it ends, though they try hard to be original and not cliched.
