Boys in Briefs: 10 Moments of Male Celeb Strippery to Watch (Over and Over) Before You Go See Magic Mike XXL

Magic Mike XXL hits theaters today, which means plenty of Matt Bomer’s perfectly chiseled face, Channing Tatum’s perfectly sculpted abs, and, of course, plenty of perfectly filled banana hammocks. Yup, we said “banana hammock.” Get over it.

In honor of the cinematic sausage fest of the year, BlackBook looks back on 10 times boys in briefs stole the show. Feel free to bookmark this one and watch it over and over.


American Psycho:

Here’s how we think of Patrick Bateman: a chiseled man doing an insane number of crunches in his tighty whities. Murder, schmurder.

Boogie Nights:

Before Ted 2, Mark Wahlberg stripped to his skivvies in Paul Thomas Anderson’s film about the Golden Age of Porn. Of course, the underwear scenes were the PG part of this story.

Weird Science:

In case you don’t remember, Wyatt is wearing panties here. No, not strange Eastern Euro underwear that look like panties. Actual women’s panties.  And you know what? They’re simply perfection. The ‘80s cut-off sweatshirt is just a bonus.

Back to the Future:

Nothing comes between Marty McFly and his fly-as-hell purple Calvins.


A besmirchment on David Lynch’s oeuvre, the only good thing about Dune is that it gave us this scene of Sting.

Animal House:

Yes, sir, we’ll have another.

The Graduate:

Here’s to you, Mrs. Robinson—for tapping that. (All right, it’s a bathing suit, but still…)

The Amityville Horror:

 James Brolin

James Brolin battles demons with his bulge. Which to be honest, isn’t really that big.

A Clockwork Orange:

Alex De Large and his droogs were at the forefront of the underwear-as-outerwear trend.


Risky Business:

And finally, the most famous male underwear scene in the history of cinema. *drops candlestick*
