This outstanding cast makes comedy movie magic!

From the trailer this looked like a really fun movie that was going to be really stupid at the same time if that makes sense. I am proud to say while this movie is a little over the top and stupid at times it is very funny and i loved this movie. The concept of this movie is brilliant and i'm surprised it hasn't been done before. There can be a good concept and a terrible movie right? Not in this case the outstanding cast just executes this movie perfectly and steve carell is incredible (pun intended),steve buscemi is funny as the abused partner, jim carrey is crazy as a david blane type but my favorite out of all of them is the magical olivia wilde she was great as burts assistant and want to be magician.. I also really enjoyed the soundtrack it fit the movie perfectly it was so light and fast paced and thats also another the movie had going for it, it was very fast paced and the run tine just flew by so as far as comedies go this is a very good one thats why i'm giving it a 8.5/10

Disappointment

The movie was a disappointment to me and my wife. With the available talent in the cast I was suprised it turned out the way it did. Jim Carrey was good as Steve Gray, Steve Carell... just not believable playing a very self centered magician. Steve Buscemi was ok too. The movie seemed to lag on a bit. Typical story line easily figured out early on in the movie. There were many ways they could have gone with the characters on the story line to make it more convincing and entertaining to the viewer........
