    It may be a meandering road trip movie about a group of emotive performers who fancy themselves therapists, but Magic Mike XXL is an ingenious revelation of a film.

  • Drew McWeeny

    It is rowdy at heart, but smart about it, and it is one more reminder that Channing Tatum is really not like anyone else working in movies right now. It is also celebratory in the way that the first film was sad, concerned more with self-acceptance than running from something.

    Magic Mike XXL keeps its aspirations low enough to satisfy only the simplest of expectations; at the end of the day, it's just another party, but sometimes a party is just good enough.

  • A.O. Scott

    Magic Mike XXL boldly flouts pop-cultural conventional wisdom. It’s often said that an explanation of a joke can’t be funny, and that the analysis of pornography is never sexy. But here is a coherent and rigorous theory of pleasure that is also an absolute blast.

  • Joe Neumaier

    There are laughs in Magic Mike XXL.... But the real eye-openers are the moments of sex-positive, woman-positive and emotion-positive contemplation.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    Cleaving hard to its road-trip formula, it works out less of an honest-to-goodness plot than Magic Mike, but goes even beyond that wonderfully loose, dexterous movie in feeling sexually liberated. It’s more glammed-up, rising above any element of tawdry exploitation, and is more of an outright comedy.

  • Todd McCarthy

    Magic Mike XXL is ridiculously entertaining.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    What saves it all from being sordid is the open desire of the director, Gregory Jacobs, and his writer, Reid Carolin, to make sure the women in the film, not the male dancers, are ultimately the ones who are celebrated.

    Does the movie work? Intermittently, sometimes brilliantly. Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    The dance routines are so hilariously spectacular — and the film is such good-naturedly inclusive fun — that you may not miss the absence of anything resembling dramatic conflict in what’s close to a feature-length concert film.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It retains the original's sunny, democratic vibe and refreshing lack of meanness, as well as Soderbergh's interest (if not his precision) in keeping several of the ensemble members in frame, interacting, without a lot of routine close-ups.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    It’s sort of like "Pitch Perfect 2," only with better music and dancing and less trumped-up conflict.

    This isn’t a perfect movie, but it might be the perfect summer movie for 2015. Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    He's selling nonsense fantasy in a movie that's nonsense fantasy, but boy is Tatum the real deal.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    More than the first Magic Mike, XXL is a loose, shambling party bus—or party organic fro-yo food truck, to be more exact—and everyone’s having a great time. These are entertainment professionals, after all, and the audience is in good hands.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    This sequel to the unlikely 2012 male-stripper sensation has an agreeably ramshackle spirit and another winning turn from star and producer Channing Tatum. As for the dancing, it’s as deliciously spirited as ever.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Magic Mike XXL isn’t really a movie. It’s a bachelorette party, or a book club, or any other safe space where women gather for some of that “you go, girl” good feeling. It’s an amusement-park ride. Fasten the safety belt, secure your purses, and get ready to scream.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Leah Greenblatt

    Director Gregory Jacobs worked under original Magic Mike helmer Steven Soderberg for years, but sadly he has almost none of his former boss’s ability to elevate material that is essentially one lamé thong away from a TLC reality series.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Katie Rife

    Magic Mike XXL is a piece of arm candy, as shallow as a mud puddle and just as bright. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t fun to hang out with.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Revisiting this material to make a “let’s put on a show” musical is all well and good, but that musical would benefit from more energy and tighter editing.

  • Peter Travers

    We get bracing bro banter, pectoral flexing and the whole gang going wild on Molly. Good times.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    Magic Mike XXL isn't so much a lesser movie than Magic Mike as it is a looser one.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Barbara VanDenburgh

    To the film's credit, it knows it's ridiculous. It's aiming for ridiculous, and it hits the mark as precisely as the strippers groove half-naked to their beats.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Cath Clarke

    Missing – and missed – are Matthew McConaughey as snake-hipped strip club owner Dallas and director Soderbergh, who gave the original its lived-in feel.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Written raggedly enough for the actors to bring their own chemistry to what aspirationally feels like one of Robert Altman’s backstage dramas (a la “Nashville” or “Ready to Wear”), Magic Mike XXL is most fun when it isn’t trying to justify itself, but just kicking back with the guys — or better yet, giving them a fresh excuse to show off their creativity.

    Variety Full Review
  • James Mottram

    Packed tight, Jacobs’ straightforward sequel may boast less up top than the Soderbergh-directed original, but still bulges where it counts.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    Even the best routines can’t entirely raise the film from its shambling, directionless feeling, and nothing is nearly as tight as Tatum and crew’s dance moves.

  • Rex Reed

    Except for the admirable testosterone on display that represents hours in the gym instead of the acting class, the rest of Magic Mike XXL is seriously stupid.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Magic Mike XXL tries mightily — if unsuccessfully — to match its predecessor’s stature as a camp classic, the epitome of trashy summer fun for the whole pansexual, polymorphously perverse, omni-libidinous family.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    With stingy portions and plenty of filler, Magic Mike XXL is the worst sausage party ever.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The first hour of Magic Mike XXL is deadly.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    If Magic Mike XXL is bulging with anything, it’s inane conversation.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Magic Mike XXL is darker, and between money-rain showers, duller. It's the movie many feared the original would be.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The dancing is well-executed and staged, and the club scenes are fun. The banter may be forced and the formula the film follows exhausted. But quibbling with Magic Mike XXL is like griping about the latest turns in the “Step Up” saga. Nobody will hear you over the girlish squeals of delight from the paying customers.

    Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    Magic Mike XXL might be a good time on a summer evening, a one-night stand best forgotten before the sun rises, but it is not a good movie. It's boring, repetitive and lunk-headed.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Rebecca Keegan

    Watching it was like opening the wrong gift —- that's not my size, and I don't like blue, but thank you, Warner Bros., for even bothering to shop for me. Most of the other studios forgot my birthday.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Ian Freer

    With Soderbergh now only on cinematography duties, this one takes all of the original’s surface — chiefly the hip gyrations — and none of the substance, interesting character arcs or charms.

    Empire Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    We’re always waiting for something important or interesting to happen, but it never really does.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    "Magic Mike" was self-contained, made with no expectation of a second chapter - and they prove unable to surmount it. Too many elements that made the first film an enjoyable experience are missing.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    This sequel goes beyond disappointment into a sublime realm of embarrassment that's beyond and yet better than merely bad, because it fascinates: What on Earth were they thinking?

    This movie is so excruciatingly dumb I felt as if someone had shaved 10 points off my I.Q. by the time I bolted for the exits.
