The Great Buck Howard

The Great Buck Howard(2008) PG

Colin Hanks stars in this offbeat comedy as a law student who quits school against his father's wishes to become the apprentice of cantankerous illusionist the Great Buck Howard (John Malkovich). Looking to regain the magic of his once-successful career, Howard takes his show on the road, where he and his new assistant endure a series of hilarious misadventures. Hanks's real-life dad, two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks, co-stars.

Showbiz Comedies, Indie Comedies
This movie is:
Feel-good, Sentimental, Quirky

Totally. And Emily Blunt is totally hot. Particularly when she drops flat on her back on the bed in an exasperated way which is pretty credible, but also extra sexy.

The writing is perfect. There's a great blog interview with the writer-director [?!],
Sean McGinly, for Creative Screenwriting.

Added "Brothers" and "2 Days", other McGinly films, to Netflix queue.
