Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg creates the social networking site that would become known as Facebook, but is later sued by two brothers who claimed he stole their idea, and the cofounder who was later squeezed out of the business.
Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
Four magicians each answer a mysterious summons to an obscure address with secrets inside. A year later, they are the Four Horsemen, big time stage illusionists who climax their sold out Las Vegas show with a bank apparently robbed for real. This puts agents Dylan Rhodes of the FBI and Alma Dray of Interpol on the case to find out how they did it. However, this mystery proves difficult to solve even with the insights of the professional illusion exposer, Thaddeus Bradley. What follows is a bizarre investigation where nothing is what it seems with illusions, dark secrets and hidden agendas galore as all involved are reminded of a great truth in this puzzle: the closer you look, the less you see.

A movie so painfully stupid you will not be able to believe it. I felt like I was watching Cannonball Run, the plot was so thin and dumb. But, you know, the first draft of Cannonball Run--before anyone went through it and checked to see how logical it was.
How they snagged this cast with a script that is so, so bad, is baffling. I can only imagine that the screenplay was genius and the director decided that instead of following it he was just going to wing it. "Magicians! Lights! Chases! Action! Print it!"
IMDb says a sequel is scheduled, presumably because American audience ate this garbage up. I'm starting my own script which is about a "Now You See Me" audience member who hunts down the screenwriters and director of the film, locks them in a safe, and shackles them to the bottom of the Hudson. It's called "Now You Don't".
