The Twenty-First Century

The Great Buck Howard [2008]

An almost forgotten movie that deserved more attention at the time of its release.  It’s the story of a man (Colin Hanks) who quits law school and becomes  assistant to an illusionist in decline. His father (played by Tom Hanks) has other plans. Funny, and full of surprises, this well made movie is worth watching for John Malkovich’s terrific performance as the “mentalist”. “I love this town!”.

Fun Fact: “Real-life father and son Tom Hanks and Colin Hanks also play father and son in the movie”.

Rating: 3/4
