The Great Buck Howard 2009

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.
