Matthew McConaughey takes off on his 'Magic Mike' role
"Magic Mike" charmed the pants off audiences, and its star, Matthew McConaughey, collected some of the best notices of his career as stripper elder statesman Dallas. Reviews of the revue found Britain's the Guardian comparing his performance to Oscar-winning turns as an MC by Gig Young ("They Shoot Horses, Don't They?") and Joel Grey ("Cabaret"), and a breathless — perhaps panting — tribute in the Washington Post called him the best thing about the movie.
