A Breakdown of
Magic Mike s Nudity
in Graphs and Charts

Magic Mike,  in the words of New York 's David Edelstein, is Steven Soderbergh's "latest parable of how capitalism transforms sex into a soulless commodity." It is also the movie in which Channing Tatum strips. He's not the only one getting naked: Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello everyone loses their clothes, repeatedly, throughout the movie. This is the point. And so to help you truly understand Magic Mike,  to really boil the film down to its essence, Vulture tallied all the various instances of nudity and made some charts. Thongs! Math! It's all waiting for you below.

















And the totals:

Bare Chests: 59
Bare Asses: 3
Bare Breasts: 4 (two each from Olivia Munn and Mircea Monroe)
Thongs: 14
Penis Pump Money Shots: 1
Shadow Money Shots: 1
Assless Chaps: 1 (McConaughey)
Marilyn Monroe dresses: 1 (Tatum)

Well, I went for the hot bods. I certainly wasn't disappointed, but you could say that I stayed because I thought the movie was, in parts, very funny. And I thought Matthew McConaughey was absolutely perfect and absolutely hysterical--and intentionally so. I laughed fit to piss myself at his character's antics.

Something that struck me as ironic:

Spoiler alert!

To the best of my knowledge, Matt Bomer was the only gay actor in the cast of principals; add to that, "out-partnered-and-raising-kids." Yet his character was the only one who was married. As in, "to a woman."  ;D

I also found the ending a little bit unsatisfying. I went into the film understanding that it was based on Channing Tatum's experiences as a stripper when he was, what? 19 years old? But maybe, for me, inspired would be a better word than based. I figured Alex Pettyfur's character, Adam, more-or-less represented Tatum, but, apparently, at the end, Adam wasn't getting out of the business, as Tatum clearly did. That's OK, I guess, but I found myself caring as much for Adam as for Mike, maybe more so, and I would like to know what became of Adam. I guess he went to Miami. ...

Well, that is what "married" means.
