S01E10: Magic Mike XXL

Ethan and Talia discuss Gregory Jacobs’s 2015 film Magic Mike XXL. How the pleasures of this film are largely down to the up-to-the-minute depiction of male friendships; on Andie McDowell’s finest acting hour; and whether the flood or articles labelling Magic Mike the feminist film of the year are justified.
