The Wizard is finally just a cynical exploitation film with a lot of commercial plugs in it, and it is so insanely overwritten and ineptly directed that it will disappoint just about everybody and serve them right for going in the first place.

The Wizard is not only tacky and moribund, but it teaches gambling and bad sportsmanship.
