Different movie but unnecessary topless scene

Untraditional movie, good story behind. Just 2 sensitive things: 2 teens flirting and getting naked (no nude but woman underware, moaning) and a 2 seconds full topless scene (totally unnecessary) in Mardi Grass part.
age 10+

Fast paced and fun

"Now You See Me" is quite frankly one of the best family friendly heist movies I have ever seen. It does feature the beginning of a sex scene but it doesn't show anything and its over super quick. it has some great acting from Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, and honestly pretty much the whole main cast. It has a great script and you never know what is going to happen next. This is one of those movies where "the closer you look,the less you see"
