This movie is alright, just not really funny.
Bryce
Steve Carrell did a great job, as did Steve Buscemi, Jim Carrey, Alan Arkin, James Gandolfini, and Olivia Wilde.
Paul Moser
It's not a terrible movie; it's just not very good.

Since it was crushed at the box office and by critics we saw this at a bargain house because it left multiplexes so quickly, on a huge screen, and had a ball. It's a very goofy, at times rude and crude, silly film, but with a surprising heart at its core, particularly when it involves Alan Arkin's character. I loved the way his character is used in the finale, and it's one of the most memorable moments for me this year at the movies. Add to that I was laughing so hard at the ending credits' depiction of what happens to the magician duo's big illusion set piece as time goes on that my friend turned to me and said "It's funny, but it's not THAT funny" because I was lost in laughing so hard I was practically losing my breath. As I've noticed many times in life, comedy is personal, and this one happened to be fascinating and entertaining to me on several levels. I love variety acts, and magicians in particular. I have a soft spot for sweet depictions of the elderly being treated with respect and valued as human beings as they fade away in assisted living homes and nursing homes. I had never seen Olivia Wilde before and thought her wonderful in this. Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, Jim Carrey, Alan Arkin and James Gandolfini (RIP) have a ball in this and it shows--and I caught the wave with them, laughing through most of the film. This film managed to engage me from beginning to end, in both comic and touching ways, and I appreciated that. One of my favorite films of the year.

I didn't research this movie, and I just watched it because of the all-star cast. When I was watching it, it felt kind of like a TV movie, and now I know why. The director, Don Scardino, is mostly famous for directing TV series like 30 Rock, Law & Order, and Cosby, and it is kind of apparent in the movie. Nevertheless, this movie is still watchable and at times funny, and you get to see some guest star magicians like David Copperfield. However, if it was not because of Jim Carrey and Alan Arkin, I would give it 3 stars or less, but these guys really saved the movie. I also hope Olivia Wilde--which I know her mostly for her House, M.D.'s "13" role--to be able to get away from hottie roles before it is too late. I know she is young, and she should start somewhere, but people get bored of just faces rather quickly.

I loved this movie when I saw it in the theater the first time. It is a parody on Magicians. Do not think this is a serious in depth look at magic, nor is it going to make you think after the movie, wow that was an amazing story. It is just simply to make you laugh and I did from beginning to end. Jim Carrey was hilarious. Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi were brilliant. For those of us that remember what magicians used to be to what they are now, you will enjoy this movie.

Magicians and illusionists have been entertaining people for a very long time and the magicians life can make for some fascinating film (e.g. THE PRESTIGE) and television (e.g. "The Amazing Falsworth" and "Mr. Magic" episodes of AMAZING STORIES). However, there aren't very many comedies made about magicians. In fact, the only thing that comes to mind is Gob Bluth on ARRESTED DEVLEOPMENT. Therefore, when I first heard about Steve Carell's movie, THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE, I was intrigued by the concept and eager to see how the film would be.

Carell plays title character, Burt Wonderstone, the front man of a magician act in Las Vegas that he stars in with his best friend, Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi). Burt and Anton have been best friends since they were kids and have been doing the same act to sold out crowds for a decade. However, when a new street "magician" named Steve Gray (Jim Carrey) appears on the scene, Wonderstone and Marvelton's audiences start to dwindle. After a botched attempt at a street spectacle of their own, the duo break up and go their separate ways and Wonderstone has to do a lot of soul searching and rediscovery before he's ready to attempt a triumph return to the limelight.

I really enjoyed THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE. It's not a great movie, but it is a good movie that has a lot of heart. It's a redemption story full of zany, comical moments. The film made me laugh out loud several times. Initially, the movie garnered a lot of negative reviews after its theatrical release. I'm not sure why except that ever since THE OFFICE, critics seem to expect too much from Steve Carell. He's a great actor and a very funny man, but every production he's in isn't going to be another THE OFFICE and every character he plays can't be Michael Scott.
