Here's how Channing Tatum's latest romp compares to the original
Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL don’t have much in common. The 2012 Steven Soderbergh film explored the dark underbelly of a male stripping world, filled with drug overdoses, violence and corruption.
The sequel, bachelorette parties will be delighted to hear, ditches the dreary indictment of the American dream. As the posters with “Come Again” printed strategically over Channing Tatum’s crotch suggest, the movie is a sexy romp.
Both movies, however, share an important element: plenty of skin. TIME watched all 306 minutes of the two movies back-to-back to see just how the two films measure up.
