In the scene where Teller is being held down with ropes by audience members, the one closest to Penn Jillette is James Randi, aka "The Amazing Randi". A close friend and mentor, Randi wrote the book "The Faith Healers" and exposed psychic doctors to the public, a driving plot point in the film. See more »

I got this movie for my 18th birthday, and it is a very good movie. Penn and Teller should make more movies like this. To bad it didn't make a lot when it was released, now the only way I can see them is watching thier magic shows. The ending of this movie caught me completely by surprise, I just can't describe how much I love it, I think I'll watch it again.
