Free stuff is on the loose and on the rise! It's bad for the environment, your health and the bottom line. From junk mail to organizations you support to school fundraisers to school/community carnivals to fast food restaurants to financial institutions to foundations to libraries and so on, cheaply made and/or excessive stuff (usually plastic junk) is being offered, sent and forced upon most Americans on nearly a daily basis.

The Great Buck Howard is not a great movie, but it is sometimes a sweet movie. Deliberately pushing the nostalgia button, the film bathes in the lost star power of a once famous "mentalist" Buck Howard (John Malkovich), who best represents the simple days of magicians like the Amazing Kreskin (the inspiration for Buck's character).
