Magic Mike (Blu-ray release 2012-10-23) is about a male stripper.  I was misled by the trailer to watch it.  I thought it would be a romantic comedy, but there is little romance to speak of, and I couldn’t find any comedy in it either.  In spite of generally good reviews of it, I hate it.  Having an anti-climatic ending is bad enough, but denying the essence of its own is even worse.  If one does not agree with or respect the profession, why make a movie about it?
