Magic Mike XXL (2015) finds most of the original Magic Mike (2012) boys and their flesh toys still performing in Tampa, Florida. Magic Mike himself (Channing Tatum) has moved on to start his furniture business, and with a missing manager (Matthew McConaughey hung up his thong and peaced out for XXL), the sexy strippers are all but ready to follow suit. Before throwing in the sweat-soaked towel, however, The Kings of Tampa decide to have one last bulge blowout at a stripping convention in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Their road trip leads to some unexpected surprises, including a reunion with the titular character. The guys learn that exposing your back is sometimes the best way to move forward, or something.
While the original Magic Mike was more of a character exploration and included some serious moments, XXL is a crowd-pleasing Magic Mike sendup, with ample gyrating and minimal story. What a coincidence - just the way we like it! The choreography is dirtier, the guys are sweatier, and the thongs are tighter (if that's even possible). Buff boys Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Kevin Nash, Donald Glover, and Adam Rodriguez are all down to clown, while Joe Manganiello gives us some of 2015's best nudity by baring his tight ass while wrestling by the pool! You'll have an XXL mess in your pants!
