One of the most anticipated movies of the summer is "Magic Mike." The movies stars Channing Tatum as "Magic Mike," Alex Pettyfer, and Matthew McConaughey and is directed by Steven Soderbergh

 

From what I've read this movie is loosely based on Channing Tatum's life and his experiences as a male stripper.

I think this might be the first American movie to focus on a male stripper.  I know there have been movies like "Striptease" and "Flashdance" were of course about female strippers. "The Full Monty" is the only movie that I can think of that features male strippers, and nobody really wanted to see those guys take off their clothes.
