The Great Buck Howard

john malkovic is good at least...

the great buck howard is the story of troy (annoyingly played by colin hanks) and his job working for the formerly famous mentalist buck howard (john malkovich). the main problem with this film is that the focus is on colin hanks and his attempt to become a writer, even while having a shitty job as buck howard's travel assistant. john malkovich gives another great performance as the mentalist who was based on the amazing kreskin, and the story is based on director sean mcginley's real experience with kreskin. the narrative should have been focused more on buck, and less on troy and his whiney ways. what has colin hanks done that didn't have him a whiney little bitch? seriously.
