'Magic Mike' features an all-star cast of gorgeous men as strippers in the Club Xquisite, led by Tatum as veteran stripper Mike. Others in the all-male revue include Alex Pettyfer as newcomer The Kid, along with Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, and Matthew McConaughey as Dallas, a former stripper who owns the club. Mike takes The Kid under his wing, teaching him the ropes of stripping. At the same time, he strikes up a relationship with the Kid's sister, Paige (Cody Horn). Things are going well -- but Paige (understandably) has a hard time getting past Mike's chosen profession.

Dallas (Matthew McConaughey) is a former stripper and now he's the owner and master of ceremonies at Club Xquisite. It's his job to keep the money coming in by keeping the hottest male strippers on the stage -- especially club favorite Magic Mike (Channing Tatum). He also has a distinct Texas drawl that makes the word "lawwwwwwbreakers" so incredibly hot...
Dallas: "Fact is, the law says you cannot touch! But I think I see a lotta lawbreakers up in this house tonight."
Okay Mike, we all wanna know what you have to do for twenties. Really, it's a valid question.
Paige: "Wow! That's a lot of ones."
Mike: "There are some fives in there."
Paige: "Oh, ok. No twenties?"
Mike: "Oh, you don't wanna know what I have to do for twenties."
The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) is introduced into the world of stripping by Mike, and he's got a lot to learn. As Dallas explains, being a great exotic dancer involves selling a fantasy.
Dallas (to The Kid): "You're not just stripping. You are fulfilling every woman's wildest fantasies. You are the husband they never had. You are that dreamboat guy that never came along! You are the one night stand that they get to have, tonight, with you on stage..."
Part of Magic Mike's job involves making stripping house calls -- showing up to perform for the ladies at bachelorette parties. Here, Mike poses as a police officer, frisking client Kim and generally sending the party goers into a total frenzy...
Mike: "We keep getting complaints about noise and underage drinking. Everybody sit down, we're gonna be here for a while. You don't have anything sharp on you that I can stick myself with, do you?"
Mike: "Good, because I do!"
