Editorial Reviews

Burt Wonderstone, The Incredible (DVD)

Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton have ruled the Las Vegas Strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt's growing ego. But lately the duo's greatest deception is their public friendship, while secretly they've grown to loathe each other. Facing cutthroat competition from guerilla street magician Steve Gray, whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show is starting to look stale. But there's still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act-both onstage and off-if only Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.

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.

There are movies where the actors are compelled by the amazing script to give their best performances. Then there are movies where the actors read the script, ask their agents "how much are they willing to pay me again?" and go for it, mailing everything in. The latter scenario describes "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," which considering its fairly high caliber of acting power boils down to nothing more than an extremely predictable riches-to-rags-to-redemption story.

Two nerdy eighties kids obsessed by a mail order magician's kit grow up to be Burt Wonderstone (a glammed-up Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (a less glammed-up Steve Buscemi), the magician superstars of the Vegas strip. However, offstage they hate each other and their popularity among the flyover crowds who adore them is being threatened by Steve Gray (Jim Carrey, who fifteen years ago would have starred in this), a "street magician" in the mold of Criss Angel and David Blaine, whose idea of magic is pulling a playing card out of a self-inflicted facial wound and holding his urine for weeks. After an attempt at edgy magic goes awry, Burt and Anton go their separate ways, Anton distributing magic kits to third world children and Burt reduced to entertaining at a nursing home for former Vegas performers. Lo and behold, the magician who inspired him as a child (Alan Arkin) lives at the home and ... I'm sure you can guess the rest.

"The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" isn't horrible, it's just REALLY predictable. I felt bad for Olivia Wilde, who's the only one that turns in a credible performance--she's also the only one who delivered a line that made me laugh. However, her character also becomes reduced to cliche.

oh my gosh this movie was bad. To be completely honest I stopped watching an hour in. I felt like I was wasting life time on something for which the time investment would never be returned. Wow Steve Carell...what were you thinking? Jim Carrey? Really... you got caught up in this too?

I hope the other magician movie is better. This one reminded me of "Best Defense" from 1984. In that film the movie was screened and labeled a bomb, so the studio dumped $6 Million on Eddie Morphy to shoot a handful of scenes. Those scenes were then edited into the "bomb" and Eddie Murphy's name made top billing even though he was in just 6 minutes. Murphy later said it almost ruined his career.

Now Jim Carey was certainly in the movie more than 6 minutes, but the interaction between Carey and Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi is so limited at the start I wondered if he was added in as an afterthought. Even the credits state "Starring Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi" leaving Cary out.

It might be a good career move to be left out of this billing for Carey since his last several movies hae been less than spectacular. What happened to the "Bruce Almighty" Jim? It seems he is doing the Eddie Murphy career dive only without the Disney-esque personality change.

Buscemi is one of my favorite actors, but miscast as the Steve Carell side-kick. He is just not believable. I think Buscemi would have been better in the role the late Gandolfini had. Although not miscast, Gandolfini was just not ethnic enough for the way the character was written. It seemed to me the character of the casino owner was kind of bland, where it could have been amazing.

As long as I'm pooping on everyone, I should excrete equally on Steve Carell since he was equally responsible for this movie's failure. Come on STEVE! Please don't just play the same guy over and over like Jerry Lewis. You are an amazing actor, so come up with something new. If the director does not have the vision to let you be the great star you are then punch him/her in the nasty bits.
