From the VHS box cover:
What more do you want?
The “bad boys of magic” go over the edge in this mind-blowing comedy/mystery about two insanely competitive practical jokers who accidentally set in motion a diabolical time-bomb of a plot.
Penn & Teller, the award-winning stars of Broadway and television, employ the same shock tactics they use on Late Night with David Letterman, The Arsenio Hall Show and Saturday Night Live to create a crazed, role-switching murder mystery set in the dizzying world of Atlantic City casinos.
In a TV interview, thrill-loving Penn mentions his idea of a fun practical joke: “I wish somebody were trying to kill me. Wouldn’t that be great? It would give focus to my life, excitement! I’d be like James Bond.” Twenty-million people hear him. One decides to deliver a punchline he’ll never forget.
