There is none of the slick magic of Penn and Teller or top professionals. This film, as the name states, captures the desperate acts of those magicians who want to make a name ... They know their tricks, but everything about them screams local act, third rank. It is both funny and sad to see their peers reactions to poorly scripted tricks. I have seen a bunch of magicians and only a few are this bad. It's like watching the backstage scenes of "Americas Got Talent" complete with a vendor dealer room for those are trying to buy some talent in addition to the tricks. I wouldn't buy the movie, but I did watched the movie twice ... If you have ever hung out at a magic store and bought some of the standard stuff (I have), you might like this movie.

For anyone who loves magic this is a charming indie film. Probably not worth buying (although I did because I'm a magic geek), but definitely worth a few bucks to rent.

As an amateur magician I can say that this movie is a real life dead on depiction of the "World of Magic" The characters, the actions the tricks the admiration's and the jealousy's are all spot on.

Writer should be shot. Lame, predictable, too dumb and cliche for watching. Boring. Director may have been dead, just sitting in the chair during filming. Nobody involved in editing has a clue about what real life is like, or what we saw on screen would not have been so saccarine and unrealistic. Like watching male-female relations in movies from late '50s, early '60s. Yuck!
