Movie critic reviews 'Magic Mike,' set in fictional Tampa strip club

TAMPA - Calling all ladies - this weekend the box office welcomes 'Magic Mike' to movie theaters across the country.

The film is set at a fictional Tampa male strip club called Xquisite, and parts of the movie were filmed in the area several months ago.

Tampa Bay Times Movie Critic Steve Persall had the pleasure of viewing this much-anticipated flick not once, but twice.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh of 'Ocean's 11' fame, stars include Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Cody Horn, Olivia Munn, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, and Gabriel Iglesias.
