Magic Mike XXL might be the only recent Hollywood movie built entirely around the pleasure principle —— Mike (Channing Tatum) and the Kings of Tampa want you to feel good. Shedding the heavy subtext of the first film (while retaining the cinematography and editing hands of Steven Soderbergh), the sequel follows the boys from their reunion in Tampa to a stripping convention in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina as they bond and kindle passions new and old. The road trip gives way to their show-stopping convention performance that recalls the blowout endings of Hollywood’s classic musicals. With boundless exuberance and humor, MMXXL focuses on life’s simple pleasures: ladies feeling good and guys being dudes.
