Magicians have been pulling rabbits out of hats for ages. And yet, with all this talent, no one can make a decent script materialize. show more
Alan Arkin does the best trick, bringing a dollop of humanity to the role of Rance Holloway, the magician who was young Burt's inspiration. Apart from Rance, the whole production is slovenly nonsense, photographed on the cheap with blaring ghastliness. Yet it poses an intriguing mystery. Did the producers appeal to a denominator even lower than common by making their film as dumb as possible, or did it just turn out that way? show more
Enjoyable but as familiar as the old-school routines its magician heroes dish out. show more
I was expecting many more laughs. Yet, a decent movie. Probably not something I will watch again. Several scenes where I had expected a build-up of laughs completely missed the point.
Carey Sucks, hand writing is on the wall on this terrible, lame Movie!! Steve Carell is not much better in it as in his past movies .Pass on this
Not super funny, but funny. Movie sticks in the same place too long though
