It's amazing what you can do with 4 pounds!!
19 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

By any reasonable standard, "A Night of Magic" is a simply awful film. The budget is practically non-existent, the acting frequently terrible and the plot is thread-bare at best. Mostly it's a long series of grade C stage acts. However, it is a bit fun at times in a kitschy and stupid way!

When the story begins, a man receives a cheap looking sarcophagus from his uncle. Inside is a hot woman who announces she's a 3000 year-old Egyptian princess. She seems about as Egyptian as Chop Suey--being all blonde and very British. However, the man is apparently a total moron and with no proof whatsoever, he believes her story. For the remainder of the film there are only a couple brief acting scenes and the rest consists of the stage acts--lots of singing and dancing of the low- brow variety. They also use some obviously older clips of various stage acts and clumsily throw them into the film.

The bottom line is that a few of the songs are cute, the rest are simply awful--as is pretty much everything else about this one. Fortunately, it is rather short!!
