A group of magicians rob a bank in Paris during a live show in Las Vegas, then give the money away to the audience. Sound like a stupid idea for a movie? Maybe, but try giving the trailer for Now You See Me a go. Can you honestly say that it doesn’t look at least moderately entertaining?
For a silly, unimportant B movie, Now You See Me has an unusually distinguished cast (Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Melanie Laurent, and Isla Fischer all star), so even if it turns out to be trash, it should at least be well-acted trash.
