    Larry-view: This is a good one. It was still fun in 2007, so I imagine it must have been excellent for its time. This time the damsel in distress is an old girlfriend and her father. This makes the story more interesting, it has built in back stories and Tony's motivations for helping are more believable and involving.



    This one features more magic, including three routines from Mark Wilson, and appearances by Mark's son Greg as well as famous magician Dai Vernon. We also get to see Tony in a performing situation rather than just impromptu. I don't get the needless exposures they are doing...that seems out of character.
