Magic Mike XXL
The boys are back in town
starstarstar
Film Review  July 3, 2015, by Kimberley Jones
"...It’s a simulation of specialness, a paid pantomime of arousal that pretends to be unique to whatever lap is within pelvic-thrust proximity. Magic Mike XXL continues the lie, with a flirty smile, as the rare mainstream film to cater to women’s sexual fantasies..."

Magic Mike
Steven Soderbergh directs this story about the male strippers of Tampa, whose lead characters are played by Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum.
starstarstar
Film Review  June 29, 2012, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...After draining all the prurience from The Girlfriend Experience, his 2009 film about a high-dollar call girl, Steven Soderbergh, in his new film, Magic Mike, restores some of the lust and excitement we generally associate with stories about sex-industry workers. You need to wait only a couple of minutes after the start of the movie before soaking in a lingering, full view of Channing Tatum’s naked behind – a mere tease for the many lascivious images that are yet to come..."

Mingering Mike, Superstar
An real singer with imaginary albums takes the stage.
DAILY Music  March 4, 2008, by Thomas Fawcett
"...Of the thousands of names on the South by Southwest 2008 band list, one was especially intriguing: Mingering Mike. The intrigue wasn’t just because I have no idea what “mingering” means, but rather that he isn’t a real performer..."

Spike & Mike's Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation 2005
Spike & Mike has always been a hit-or-miss program, and this year is no different, with a few genuinely brilliant pieces surrounded by examples of puerile fun and juvenile humor.

Film Review  January 28, 2005, by Marc Savlov
"...Directed by: Various. Has it really been 15 years since Craig "Spike" Decker and the late Mike Gribble initiated this surprisingly durable cavalcade of objectionable animations and crass anti-commercialism? It has, but what’s most remarkable about their annual parade of gag-reflex-inducing animations isn’t that it’s still around, but that it’s maintained a stubborn sort of unflappable continuity, marked by occasional stumbles into the realm of genius..."

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

"...Scatologically speaking, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is best described as one of those summer movie turds: It passes easily and then disappears with a single flush.

Film Review  January 30, 2004, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...(The catchy theme song of "My First Boner," which comes – so to speak – at the end of the program, causes many people to leave the theatre singing the tune.) Only the French-made "How to Cope With Death" by Ignacio Ferreras and the aforementioned "Heavy" attempt any philosophical underpinnings, although they, too, have their share of physical anguish and torture. Before the show starts and during the intermission, Spike and Mike lead the crowd in bawdy audience participation exercises designed to get viewers into receptive moods..."

Film Review  August 21, 1992, by Marc Savlov
"...Serge Ellisalde's “Street Sweeper” is an understated, pencil-and-cel gem: a Parisian street cleaner stands by the curb wielding a broom indiscriminately, sweeping trash, cars, and people into the refuse duct beneath him. Not all of the shorts that Spike and Mike have collected this year are as promising as the ones above: as in all animated collections, the whole is wildly uneven with a few masterpieces, a couple of bombs, and more than enough also-rans to go around..."
