Home / Now Showing / PENN & TELLER GET KILLED
Directed by Arthur Penn and starring bad-boy magicians Penn & Teller, this offbeat black comedy depicts the series of adventures, mishaps, and practical jokes that is set in motion when Penn Jillette publicly states that he wishes someone would try to kill him in order to add excitement to his life. Hilarity ensues–until Penn & Teller discover that a real maniac killer is on the loose and after them, leading to a shockingly bleak finale. Jon Cryer, Christopher Durang, James Randi, and Tom Sizemore join the supporting cast.
