What’s it about?
Five strippers go to a stripping convention for one last strip.

What did we think?
Elizabeth Best says: This is the movie everyone thought the original would be: an excuse for hot guys to get their kit off and a socially sanctioned way for women to drool over said guys. In between the pelvic thrusting, (I’m PRETTY sure there were scenes between the thrusting…) there’s a sense of humour that was missing from Magic Mike, making this film sillier but somehow more enjoyable (not just because of the semi-naked men, shut up.) If you’ve ever wanted to see porn on the big screen, this is your chance.

    The appeal of this one is simple… Come for the stripping, stay for the stripping.

    In a refreshing improvement on its predecessor, Magic Mike XXL doesn’t try to be anything more than what it is – a socially acceptable way to enjoy some male stripping.

    Targeted ferociously at the female population, this pic is basically a formulaic dance movie about a group of buddies who just want to empower women and bring smiles to their faces… by stripping.

    Unburdened by the capital-I-Issues of the first film, the lightened tone allows for plenty of (intentional!) jokes and stunt-casting.

    Have a couple of drinks and see it with your girlfriends (or gay friends).
