“[Magic Mike] is not simply an exposé of Tatum Channing’s former life as a stripper. It can be read as a veiled representation of his time in Hollywood as a pretty boy leading man searching for artistic validity. If Magic Mike needs to use his body and good looks (stripping) in order to pay for the art he really cares about (furniture design), can’t this be read as Tatum going through the motions of Dear John and The Vow to become a creator of his own destiny as the producer and champion of Magic Mike, a film that capitalizes on his beauty while at the same time frames it as a curse? The real underdog story here is not about a stripper trying to get out of the game; it’s about a talented actor trying to take control of his career.” – James Franco reviewing Magic Mike for The Huffingto Post, and really, really, really liking Channing Tatum’s performance.
