Lighthearted mob drama follows a Vegas funnyman who turns snitch against some heavyweight mobsters and needs protecting.
Buddy 'Sarah Aces' Israel (Jeremy Piven) is a comedic Vegas magician who has informed on an important mobster.
The call goes in from the mobster that a million bucks goes to anyone who cuts Buddy's heart out and the FBI intercept the call.
Aces is put under the protection of agents Carruthers and Messner (Ray Liotta and Ryan Reynolds) who squirrel the magician away in his own Tahoe retreat.
Pretty soon there ain't a hotel room to be had in Tahoe as a parade of hit men, bounty hunters and, generally, a rogues' gallery of miscreants descend, locked in the chase to be the one to off the corrupt conjurer.
Aces is soon wishing he could disappear up his own sleeve and the two hapless agents are no way prepared for an onslaught of this level.
Also stars Ben Affleck, Andy Garcia, and musicians Alicia Keys, Common and the great Wayne Newton - Mr. Vegas himself.
