----
!!Tropes:

* BasedOnATrueStory
* BingeMontage: Adam and Mike star in one.
* BiTheWay: Joanna who has threesomes with Mike and other girls and shows interest in Brooke.
* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Mike loses most of his savings bailing Adam out of trouble, but finally realizes that he has to get out of stripping and after quitting he has a good shot at a lasting romantic relationship with Brooke. Similarly, Adam benefits from Mike's exit and the club's move to Miami but may end up exactly in Mike's situation.]]
* CharacterTitle: Named after Channing Tatum's character, obviously.
* ChippendalesDancers
* ClusterFBomb: To be specific, there's over 150 uses of the word, and since the stripping scenes have little to no dialogue, there are some scenes with a ''lot'' of them crammed in there, along with some other words. The entire construction scene near the beginning is a good example.
* DrugsAreBad: [[spoiler:Adam and his girlfriend overdose and lose Mike's savings.]]
* FemaleGaze: THE WHOLE MOVIE! [[PornWithoutPlot Especially the bonus feature that compiles all the stripping scenes and skips the boring plot parts]].
* {{Fetish}}: Lots and lots of it, everything from Tarzan to Military men.
* FiremenAreHot: Yes features.
* FriendsWithBenefits: Mike and Joanna.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: So much of it in this movie, like when Big Dick Richie was pumping his penis nonchalantly.
* 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.]]
* LadyKillerInLove: Mike decides to change his ways.
* MaleGaze: There are SOME images for males, not as obvious but still there.
** Creator/OliviaMunn '''[[MsFanservice topless]] is not something to to understate!'''
* MistakenForGay: Brooke seems to assume that Adam is gay after first seeing his box of stripper outfits and seeing him shave his legs.
* MrFanservice: Basically, the film version of this trope.
* MyGirlIsASlut: Gender inverted and played with.
* MySisterIsOffLimits: Seemingly averted- Adam asks Mike if he's interested in Brooke and teases him about it but doesn't seem to care either way if Mike's interested in her romantically.
* 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.
* TheObiWan: Mike is this to Adam.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Erm, ''Big Dick Richie''.
* PassingTheTorch: Mike to Adam, though mostly inadvertently.
* ShirtlessScene: In a film about male strippers?!
* SpearCounterpart: ''The Players Club'' has striking similarities in storyline, character archetypes, and ending (for the main characters at least). And it was very much tongue in cheek.
* ThreeWaySex: In the beginning of the movie, Mike and Joanna have just had a three-way with a woman that they apparently don't know. Joanna also approaches Mike about inviting Brooke for one.
* XtremeKoolLetterz: The name of the strip joint is Xquisite.
* YouCanLeaveYourHatOn
* YourCheatingHeart: [[spoiler:Joanna has been cheating on her fiance with Mike.]]
** Interestingly, it's [[spoiler:Mike]] who's shocked, while the [[spoiler:fiancÚ]] looks like [[spoiler:he]] might have known something was up.
