Gold's conventional script is enlivened by engaging performances, authentic tricks and amusing noir-parody touches as it delves into the often unsavory institutional politics of the magic industry.
Tthe actors are better at making coins disappear than emoting, though brassy blond Dillman is as lively as a hat full of rabbits.
The story has a few convolutions too many, but a generous sprinkling of tricks and illusions will appeal to fans of magic.
The magic is all on the stage is this lightweight review of catchy illusion.
Does for the world of magic what "The Wrestler" did for another profession based on illusion. Much better than "The Prestige" even though with a more modest provenance.
Low-key, low-budget but highly likeable comedy about magicians in all their trickery.
It gives off the alienating feel of an inside joke that you miss in the off chance you're not part of the professional magic business.
