'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.

No Sharp Objects
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!"
Mr. Magic Mike
Magic Mike is the star attraction at Club Xquisite. He's a veteran stripper and he definitely knows how to work a crowd with his dance moves and gyrations. As a result, he brings in major cash for himself and for the club.
Dallas (to club audience): "Will you welcome to the stage, the one, the only... Mr. Magic Mike!"
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..."
Obviously things don't always go smoothly for the club's strippers, including Richie (Joe Manganiello), who finds that lifting a slightly heavy female can result in injury. It's not a joke though -- these guys make big money. They'll need it to pay the chiropractor...
Paige: "I was hoping this was all a joke." (watches stripper "Big Dick" Richie flipping a patron upside down -- and cracking his back in the process)
Mike: "It's pretty funny."
