  • Terrifically likable without trying too terribly hard.

  • The various sleights of hand are impressive even if we're afforded little insight into their actual execution. Still, it's fun stuff.

    May 27, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

  • Magicians have a saying: "The trick is told when the trick is sold. " These kids are sold on tricks.
