A dramatic comedy set in the world of male strippers, The film follows Mike as he takes a young dancer called The Kid under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money. Alas, superficial gratification has a toll and Mike finds himself re-evaluating after he meets 'The Kid's' sister who sees his lifestyle as the ironic midnight cowboy a little too challenging for her sensibility.
“This is terrific entertainment with a sideline in wry melancholia and testosterone-fuelled philosophy.” Kim Newman Empire Magazine
“Soderbergh has created a spicy yet lucid, surgingly high-energy yet smartly modernistic musical.” Richard Brody New Yorker
“It's a nicely balanced blend of comedy, drama and athletic dancing that plies its trade with winking, unforced self-assurance.” Anne Hornaday Washington Post
