Magic Mike is being sold by the studio as something it isn't. It's the darkest movie I've seen about where we are now and masterfully made.

Magic Mike: the "celebration" sequence in the Tampa condo during a hurricane sends out such bad vibes but with such subtlety that I froze...

"Magic Mike" is by far the best U.S. movie of 2012. Nothing comes close. Ending doesn't sweeten The New American Hopelessness at its core...
He's not really wrong, and the only thing holding the film back is that some aspects of the plot became forced and overblown towards the end of the film. I haven't seen a better Hollywood film this year.
