We’ve got 15 months to go until “Magic Mike XXL” hits theaters, but the movie’s Big Dick Richie has something to whet your appetite in the meantime. Joe Manganiello — who plays the well-endowed Richie in “Magic Mike” — directed “La Bare,” a documentary about the world’s most popular male strip club, La Bare Dallas, which hits theaters on June 27. “Men wanted to see naked women, women want a show,” one person notes in the Red Band trailer above, and the film takes a look behind the curtain (and beneath the banana hammock) at just how that show comes — oh whatever, blah blah blah, SHOW ME SOME ASS.

“Magic Mike XXL” – yes, we choose to embrace this pun – will officially be arriving in theaters on July 3, 2015, leaving us over a year to fantasize about it. Here’s how to spend the 15 long months between now and the next time we see Channing Tatum’s … adapted screenplay. Keep reading »
“You put one of those [thongs] on, and you find that your body gets kind of inverted. I had to loosen up, because this is a guy who really lives in this thing, and I had to get really loose and [down] with it. I remember going — and I wasn’t the only one who did this — I had to walk out amongst the crew and have small-time, normal conversations. ‘Hey, what’d you have for lunch? Did you see the game this weekend?’ Go out and try to have some small talk in this thong without flinching. It was hard. I wasn’t [hard], but it was.”
Matthew McConaughey shares about his thong-wearing experience on the set of “Magic Mike” as a guest on “The Graham Norton Show.” And now I’m wondering what he means by “inverted.”That word choice is conjuring all sorts of weird images. [People]
When I came out as a lesbian, my mom cited my rabid N’Sync fandom as evidence that I was obviously mistaken. She was certain that my liking a group of effeminate, nearly prepubescent boys, gyrating to songs about feelings was indicative of my heterosexuality. I’ve used that story as the punch line to my coming out for years. But just recently, I’ve found myself yet again defending my sexual preferences to my own peers in light of some my pop culture life choices, namely “Magic Mike.”
I’m going to go right out there and say it: Channing Tatum is a rhythmic god. Don’t pretend you don’t like dance movies, specifically “Step Up,” or that you haven’t spent time in front of the mirror trying to perfect your own moves after seeing him effortlessly slide across that stage and into the laps of awaiting women. And, sure, maybe my seeing a movie about male strippers multiple times seems a little suspect, seeing as the audience was predominately straight women acting as though they were at the bachelorette party of their lives. I will tell you that I found my jaw on the ground through the majority of the movie. So what? Keep reading »
Listen, I know the holiday movie season still lies ahead, but I am confident in saying that no other film will come close to the astounding cinematic spectacle of “Magic Mike,” hands down my favorite movie of the year. And I’m even more sure that no other Blu-ray/DVD will get as many plays either — thanks to the “too hot for theaters” additional dance sequences, my rewind button will be putting in overtime. Loved “Magic Mike” or still dying to see it? Well, surprise, surprise, three lucky readers will win a copy of the “Magic Mike” Blu-Ray/DVD and a Channing Tatum autographed trading card. Hot.
