Editorial Reviews

Operating under the adage that "wetter is better," PENN & TELLER: OFF THE DEEP END goes where no magic show has ever gone before--deep underwater on the floor of the Caribbean Sea!

The original bad boys of magic, Penn & Teller, take their unique combination of magic and comedy to the Bahamas! Teller, the silent straight man, performs the most dangerous tricks including escaping from a straight jacket amidst a school of hungry sharks, as the tall and talkative Penn explains the secrets behind their amazing feats of illusion and trickery such as sawing a glamorous mermaid in half and dolphin's slight-of-bottlenose. In their show-stopping finale, Penn & Teller make an entire 75-foot submarine disappear before your very eyes!

Deep beneath the surface of the sea, where even the smallest trick becomes profoundly more difficult, an Penn & Teller's talents more than meet the challenge, leaving their audiences (and at times, their assistants) gasping for breath.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three-piece suits and magic in the tropics June 12, 2006
Format:DVD
P&T continue their tradition of doing tricks and revealing how they're done. The trick where they produced a card in an astonishing manner showed you just how much preparation goes into a trick. From the very start, where they show you how something went wrong during one of their tricks, to the end, where they vanish a submarine, this is good P&T.

The part I liked best was seeing just how well-trained a dolphin can be. The only part I didn't like was Aaron Carter singing the Penn & Teller theme song.

(Note: this was *not* an infomercial for the resort. Yes, they shot some tricks there, but they were also on other islands.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Penn & Teller will resort to anything June 4, 2006
Format:DVD
One reviewer called this an "infomercial" for the Atlantis resort. I've got the DVD and, darn, I can't seem to find the bit where Penn & Teller give package rates and show the size of the rooms...

Seriously (and shots of Atlantis notwithstanding), if you enjoy Penn & Teller you'll certainly enjoy seeing them subversively dressed in business suits in a tropical vacation climate, as they bother and bewilder the resort guests. Sometimes you've just got to go a fancy shmancy place like Atlantis, to do that.

3.0 out of 5 stars I expected more. January 6, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are shows on DVD that I would watch again and again (given a few months in between) but this particular show is not one of them. Unfortunately. Don't get me wrong, Penn and Teller are great fun and the video is ok but, and this is a huge 'but': the TV show format with its endless repetitions, previews of the exciting things to come in the next segment and recaps of what we have just seen is so tiring that it defies words. Are we, the audience on average so idiotic that we forget what we have just seen 5 minutes earlier? Geez. This is not a good format for the usually high intensity, quick moving pace I have come to expect from Penn and Teller.

Ok, so apart from the TV format which is annoying, the DVD is what you would expect from the duo: fun! Penn and Teller are entertaining and the DVD is family friendly, just a minor comment in here that male teenagers will appreciate but that reference will probably be over the heads of anyone younger. A special appearance by Aaron Carter 'singing' underwater unfortunately dates the experience.

So overall: an ok video to watch once, otherwise this is just 'meh'. Being a fan of Penn and Teller, this is somewhat disappointing. Sorry guys.

4.0 out of 5 stars Penn & Teller push the limits as only they know how. November 21, 2007
Format:DVD
Great show by the legendary Penn & Teller. They go through various tricks and illusions, exposing afterwards how they did them. The focus of the show is of course the underwater illusions and tricks, but interspersed throughout are tricks done on the beach. The illusions are (as always) amazing and entertaining, with Penn keeping the comedy flowing throughout. Aaron Carter also appears to sing a Penn & Teller song whilst both are doing a trick underwater. The two main events are; making an 80 ton submarine disappear and Teller pulling a disappearing/survival act in a pool of sharks.

This is not an Atlantis infomercial or advertisement. They mention it once or twice, but its in passing comment just revealing where all is taking place.

The only problem I have with this DVD is the editing. Maybe its personal preference but I would have preferred if the lead-ups to the ad breaks were removed. A 30-45 second preview of what is coming up after the break just gets tiring and frustrating straight away; I bought the DVD, of course I'm going to watch it, so please stop showing me clips of footage from the main event tricks to entice me to stay tuned...

Also at the beginning, there is a really long intro into the show, that feels like its going on forever. I know I can fast forward through it, but it seems pointless.

Its merely DVD issues and if my two main gripes are regarding promo issues on the DVD, then obviously I dont have much to complain about; the show itself is immense and hilarious, an hour and a half long, with one or two impressive extras. If you're a Penn & Teller fan, you will love this.
