Resisting the temptation to capitalise on the camp value of these characters, Channing Tatum and his producing-writing partner Reid Carolin create a startlingly loose and thoughtful follow-up to their 2012 hit. Yes, it's still the story of a group of ridiculously muscled men who take their clothes off for a living and enjoy a laugh. And even without much of a plot it's a remarkably astute exploration of masculinity and gender politics. In the last three years, Mike (Tatum) has made a decent go of his furniture-making business, but his life feels stuck in a rut.
Then his old pals ask him to go on the road for one last hurrah to a stripper convention. So he heads off with new-age healer Ken (Matt Bomer), lovelorn beefcake Richie (Joe Manganiello), artful biker Tarzan (Kevin Nash), macrobiotic smoothie expert Tito (Adam Rodriguez) and food-truck driving deejay Tobias (Gabriel Iglesias). Along the way, they meet up with Mike's old mentor Rome (Jada Pinkett Smith), who provides two new guys for the team (Donald Glover and Stephen 'tWitch' Boss). And they get some favours from a newly single Southern belle (Andie MacDowell) and another old friend (Elizabeth Banks).
There's very little to the story, but the film's improvisational style allows all of the characters to deepen in quiet but significant ways. So the journey these people take is even more internal than the highways they traverse from Tampa, Florida, to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The main point is that these men need to figure out who they are if they have any hope of finding happiness, and each one takes his own subtle voyage of discovery. The actors dive into this approach, which requires unusually subtle performances that combine sexy physicality with earthy, boisterous humour. What the film never does is fall back on the usual cliches about machismo or sexuality.

The male stripper sequel hit US theatres today (July 1st) and stars Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, and Joe Manganiello.
Channing Tatum and his troupe of oiled up, dancing beefcakes have hit the road this summer for Magic Mike XXL, the sequel to the highly successful 2012 film which followed a group of male strippers in Florida. But while the first film showed a surprising amount of heart, the XXL version seems to be more intent on just showing skin, leaving some reviewers feeling more than a little cheated.
The boys of Magic Mike XXL
Star Channing Tatum, who based the original film on his own experiences as an 18 year old stripper in Florida, has come along way in the short period of time since Magic Mike. Last year he impressed critics in Oscar nominated drama Foxcatcher, so it’s no surprise that some were expecting a lot from Tatum in his second Magic Mike outing.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star is hoping to sell his 37-acre estate near Saint -Tropez.
Actor Johnny Depp has put his massive 37 acre French estate and private ‘village’ on the market, with a hefty asking price of $25.76 million. The compound is just a short walk away from the village of Plan de la Tour in southern France and is also not far from holiday destination Saint -Tropez.
Johnny Depp has put his French retreat on the market.
According to Sotheby's International Realty, who has listed the property, the estate boasts a private "hameau" or small Provencal village which features a main house, guest cottages, a chapel, a bar and restaurant, and other structures. The main property also includes 12 bedrooms and 12 full baths as well as more than 10,000 square feet of living space.

And the body. These days, his stripper friends have decided to give up their dancing careers in Tampa, Florida too, but these aren't the kind of guys who are going to disappear quietly. They thus decide to get together one last time for a spectacular performance at Myrtle Beach in South Carolina where a major stripping convention is due to take place. Mike agrees to join them as their headliner, re-living his glory days as the ultimate chiselled fantasy. Along the way he meets some old friends and welcomes new faces in such cities as Jacksonville and Savannah, and they dance away their previous lives in style.
