Fun movie, 21 September 2001
Author: Tinyhippy from United Kingdom

I actually really liked this movie. Wil Wheaton, still fresh from "Stand By Me" gives a good performance as the young Harry Houdini. The story is fun and interesting, and some parts quite funny. I'd recommend this for a lazy sunday afternoon.
