I, too, made a wrong choice -- Now You See Me. I read somewhere that it was similar to The Prestige, and that was enough to draw me in. But the only connection was the subject matter, illusionists and how they work. The tricks in Now You See Me were entertaining at first, but they grew more and more preposterous so that the movie ended up just being ludicrous. Correction: there is one more connection with The Prestige -- Michael Caine is in both movies.
