* AscendedExtra: The other male strippers Ken, Big Dick Richie and Tarzan have bigger roles in the sequel.

* ChippendalesDancersChippendalesDancers: But of course.


Added DiffLines:

* DenserAndWackier: The first film is a cynical SliceOfLife with a few light-hearted moments. The second is more of an out and out comedy with a lot more {{Fanservice}}.


Added DiffLines:

* PutOnABus: In the sequel, Dallas has gone off to Macau and taken Adam with him, so they don't appear. This is apparently due to Matthew [=McConaughey=] becoming a lot more expensive since his Oscar win, and Alex Pettyfer not getting along with the cast during the first film.

* EthicalSlut: Joanna is bisexual and Mike doesn't have a problem with her seeing people on the side. He is however rather dismayed when [[spoiler: he discovers she has a fiancee]].
* {{Fanservice}}: Besides the obvious, there's plenty of eye candy from the female characters. Brooke walks around Florida wearing short skirts and hot pants, and there's an extended scene of her walking around the beach in a bikini. Ken's wife allows Adam to feel her boobs, and the camera is all to happy to [[MaleGaze oblige]]. And of course Creator/OliviaMunn is topless in the film's opening.



* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Adam. He loses a ton of ecstasy, causing Mike to have to spend his savings to protect him from serious harm. He doesn't see any repercussions from it.]]
** [[spoiler:Although, he doesn't appear to learn much from the experience, and Mike probably won't be around to bail him out next time, so it may be subverted.]]

* MaleGaze: There are SOME images for males, not as obvious but still there.
** Creator/OliviaMunn '''[[MsFanservice topless]] is not something to to understate!'''



* NeverTrustATrailer: The marketing of the film would have you believe it's a light comedy with lots of FemaleGaze {{fanservice}}, but many moviegoers left the movie believing it more of a dramatic cautionary tale about the profession. The first people to say so were the actors themselves, since they all mentioned that Steven Soderbergh wouldn't have hitched his wagon to it unless it had some hidden depth to it.
** Of course, there's still plenty of FemaleGaze fanservice. And comedy. But also the message.

* RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic: Mike, particularly when speaking quickly, stumbles and stutters out dialogue. It's a bit hard to judge whether this is intentional or a lack of acting ability.

* SliceOfLife: Surprisingly enough, the movie just examines the life of a few male strippers in Florida. There's not much of a plot, and the film is driven by Adam's introduction to the lifestyle.



* YourCheatingHeart: [[spoiler:Joanna has been cheating on her fiance with Mike.]]
** Interestingly, it's [[spoiler:Mike]] who's shocked, while the [[spoiler:fiancé]] looks like [[spoiler:he]] might have known something was up.

Magic Mike is a 2012 comedy film directed by Creator/StevenSoderbergh and starring Channing Tatum, [[BasedOnATrueStory based on Tatum's year working as a male stripper]]. It completely objectifies the male body as a sex object, which certainly makes a nice change.

A sequel, ''Film/MagicMikeXXL'' was released on July 1, 2015, with most of the cast reprising their roles.
