THE GREAT BUCK HOWARD (Sundance Film Festival Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden City, Provo City, Sundance Resort North East of Provo City, Utah USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

The Great Buck Howard
—loosely based on The Amazing Kreskin’s story—faded in its box office releases and earned just under $1,000,000 sales. This sleeper film is a terrific ‘pick-up’ film with excellent entertainment value. The story is phenomenal and sensationally portrayed by John Malkovich, Colin Hanks, and Emily Blunt. Well done film and definitely worth watching; watch for Tom Hanks, father of Colin Hanks tucked into the story’s lines.
