THE CLOSER YOU LOOK, THE LESS YOU SEE,
This review is from: Now You See Me (DVD)
The film opens with four quick character introductions of "street" magicians. Daniel (Jesse Eisenberg) uses street magic to meet pretty women. His former assistant Henley (Isla "Legs" Fisher) does a stage act. McKinney (Woody Harrelson) is a hypnotist who uses his ability to shake down people. Jack (Dave Franco) uses his slight of hand to pick pocket people.
The four are summoned by Tarot cards (Lover, High Priestess, The Fool, and Death) to a common location. After the credits they become the world's greatest stage magicians while performing crime. They are followed by FBI Dylan (Mark Ruffalo) and Interpol Alma Dray (Mélanie Laurent). Meanwhile Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman) is exposing their seemingly impossible tricks on the Internet.
The film keeps you interested as to their next trick. The movie drops clues as to what is going on, but again there is the classic misdirection here too. It is s fun popcorn action film filled with mystery, drama, action, and humor.
Parental Guide: One f-bomb. no sex, or nudity. Some sex discussion. Woman in bra.

I agree with Tori! How I wish every movie would include the parental guide--with even a bit more detail. Thanks so much!

If you check out IMBD, then click on the rating guide, it gives details where someone has submitted them.

I can't remember where it was, but I do take notes when I watch films and mark them down when I hear them. IMDB claims there are 2 f-bombs, so it seems I missed one too.
