the top of his game, 'Magic Mike XXL' finds the remaining Kings of

their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in
Myrtle Beach, and with legendary headliner Magic Mike sharing the
spotlight with them. On the road to their final show, with whistle
stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances and make
new friends, Mike and the guys learn some new moves and shake off the
past in surprising ways."
