Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 03/20/2009
"[S]weetly nostalgic and gently satiric....What renders it worth watching are three key performances. John Malkovich is pitch-perfect as the egomaniacal, vaudeville-style magician..."
New York Times - 03/20/2009
"[A]n agreeable show business satire with a warm heart....John Malkovich exaggerates the familiar mannerisms of this self-described professional mentalist to create a barbed but affectionate portrait of a second-string trouper struggling for a comeback."
Box Office - 03/20/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "Buck is the type of 'take it and run with it' part that brings out the best in Malkovich....Blunt adds further star power to the film's terrific cast..."
Entertainment Weekly - 03/27/2009
"THE GREAT BUCK HOWARD gives the loopy John Malkovich the showcase he deserves....[The film] is in love with kitsch, the backwaters of showbiz, and true magic. It's a wee charmer..." -- Grade: A-
Chicago Sun-Times - 03/18/2009
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Colin Hanks is affecting....No one else could have played Buck better than Malkovich....The film is funny and perceptive..."
Premiere - 03/19/2009
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Malkovich is just right for the role of the quirky mentalist....The pacing and direction of the film match up perfectly with Malkovich's performance."
