Disappointed

I like Steve Carell in general so was really looking forward to this fim. As it began I kept waiting for the funny parts to happen. I waited and waited. I even waited some more. There were a couple parts that got a chuckle but, overall, it was a dud. The writing was poor. There just seemed to be very little for him to be funny about. There were a few teenage girls that laughed a few times in the theater but I think they were laughing about something else. Swing and a miss.

Cannot figure out why this cast even showed up for work. One of the worst movies of the year. Even their make up was botched. What the heck happened ?

Hit and miss comedy, pulls at the right parts and wrong parts of humor

With an excellent cast, I went in with high expectations and left with a mixed bag of sentiments. Overall, the movie is OK, not the best but not the worst. The story setting and characters pull upon every segment of magicians and show business by executing parodies of some of the most popular magic acts of our times. From Siegfried and Roy, David Copperfield, Cris Angel, and David Blain. However where it misses for me, though I admit I found some moments funny, is the bit of awkwardness, jokes that came off a bit more tasteless than funny, and the absurd moments were more disturbing than absurd, though some moments do have their moments. The story's plot carries the movie and the plot twists are good as the character conflicts quickly wrap the story up in a redeemable manner.

These actors are top notch, there's no denying that, but the story is weak and there aren't enough good scenes to recommend this comedy. I was looking forward to a comeback for Carrey, this just isn't it.
