AN ANNUAL RAGTAG TRADITION, JUNE 28-JULY 4 ONLY!
The Kings of Tampa, a male stripper troupe, are calling it quits, but before they put away their thongs, these endearing bros decide to put on one final performance at a Myrtle Beach stripping convention. They board an artisanal Fro-Yo food truck and embark on one of cinema's most pleasurable road trips. Channing Tatum, Jada Pinkett Smith, Matt Bomer, Donald Glover, Andie MacDowell, Joe Manganiello and Twitch all knock it out of the park in this sexy, good-hearted Fourth of July classic, which reminds us what's so beautiful about our country (oh, and no, you don't need to see that other Magic Mike first). Magic Mike XXL returns to Ragtag for its third year.
"What's great about this movie — and it is great in its ridiculous way — is how it sustains a balance of hilarity and eroticism. As I sat there laughing, I realized I wasn't only entertained. I was moved and exhilarated. Not since the days of peak Travolta and Dirty Dancing has a film so perfectly nailed something essential about movie lust: Male vulnerability is hot, particularly when the man is dancing with and therefore for a woman. It aligns the entire audience with the complex prerogatives of female desire." (Wesley Morris, Grantland)
