About the Movie
Jason is not the magician he wishes he was. Bored with his life as a computer programmer, he dreams of becoming a professional magician. Stacy achieved that dream, only to be spit out by the male-dominated magic establishment, leaving her to fend for herself on the street passing the hat to tourists, and picking pockets. They both have something to prove. The Brotherhood of Magicians Competition gives them one last shot at success. But as the sparks fly between them, will Stacy pull Jason into her life of crime?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The story has a few convolutions too many, but a generous sprinkling of tricks and illusions will appeal to fans of magic.
Fresh: Gold's conventional script is enlivened by engaging performances, authentic tricks and amusing noir-parody touches as it delves into the often unsavory institutional politics of the magic industry.
Rotten: Tthe actors are better at making coins disappear than emoting, though brassy blond Dillman is as lively as a hat full of rabbits.
Fresh: Desperate Acts of Magic is a pleasant little film.
A must for magicians
Great funny movie !
Great fun for magicians and laymen seem to enjoy it too! I think there should be more movies featuring magicians!
