'Magic Mike XXL' Movie Review: Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello Return

Get all the details of the new film in the ABC News review.

Rated R

Two out of five stars

You may remember from 2012’s "Magic Mike" that Channing Tatum’s Mike was leaving the stripping business to build his own custom furniture business. Let’s just say neither the business or his relationship went as planned. So when his old buddies -- Big Dick Richie (Joe Manganiello), Tarzan (Kevin Nash), Ken (Matt Bomer) and Tito (Adam Rodriguez) -- decide to take a road trip for one last hurrah at the annual stripper convention in Myrtle Beach, Mike can’t resist the temptation to turn back the clock and dry-hump strangers all the way up the Florida and South Carolina coasts.

Truthfully, "Magic Mike XXL" is a story that could’ve been told in 20 minutes. On the flip side, even if male strippers aren’t your thing, it’s impossible not to be impressed by Tatum’s dancing ability and Manganiello’s comedic timing. I just wish Manganiello’s two funniest scenes didn’t feel like they were three hours apart. This film’s pacing is atrocious.

I’m sure some will find "Magic Mike XXL" arousing, but not anyone whose idea of a turn-on is a good movie.
