Not a single male was seated in the cinema for that session. Which of course is really no surprise, given the subject matter.
In case you haven't seen, heard or read about Magic Mike, it's a movie about male strippers.

I give it a 3 out of 10, plus a bonus point for Channing Tatum's six-pack. Check it out below (the movie trailer, not the six-pack!)
