I saw this at the Seattle International Film Festival and it's more than just "Great".... It's WONDERFUL! Colin Hanks (yes, THAT "Hanks") is amazing as the lead character, who, against his father's wishes, quits law school and becomes the assistant to "Mentalist" Buck Howard. And it goes without saying that John Malkovich was perfect for the role of Buck. Tom Hanks appears in a couple of cameos as the father (ingenious!), and while watching the film I noticed the uncanny resemblance between the two, especially in Collin's profile shots. If seeing Tom Hanks in cameos isn't enough, try other celebs such as talk show, late night and daytime hosts, among other surprises. All this, plus the talents of Collin, Tom, Emily and John make for one fantastic film!
