I went to see "Smoking Aces."

I went to see the multi-star film "Smoking Aces." Everyone from Andy Garcia and Ray Liota to Aleshia Keys and Ryan Reynolds was in it. It was a really really daft film if I'm honest. Jeremy Piven plays a magician-cum-mafia don who's had a hit taken out against him by a competitor. In response, Piven agrees to help the FBI. After that, it's a race between the FBI and various hit-men to catch Piven and kill him.

Part of the problem is that the film's plot is intrinsically daft. (Whoever heard of a magical hit-man?) Couple that with the increadulity I felt about so many good actors being in the film and part of me is always going to think "What the....?" about this film.
