Got a little lax in the middle but the 2nd half was a lot of fun to watch.

Advantageous Rivalry

By joyfulwoman2078

“The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” movie centers around a plot involving the magician characters of Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carrell), Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi), Jane (Olivia Wilde), and Steve Gray (Jim Carey). Steve Carrell and Steve Buscemi give off the wall but convincing performances as magicians who also happen to be both business partners and best friends. Olivia Wilde also gives a natural performance as a woman working for Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton.Jim Carey shrewdly plays an eccentric magician that serves both a humorous and unconventional role in giving great competition to Burt Wonderstone. Carey’s Gray character also helps to eventually bring out the best in Burt Wonderstone on a professional level. It is just entertainment, but I believe that the competition and enemies part also applies in real-life. When seen in a positive light, enemies and competition can bring out the brilliance in a person via professional, spiritual, and/or emotional levels.

Not funny enough

The movie had a good theme and an all-star cast. The old school Steve Carell was juxtapositioned against the new school Jim Carey. The theme was the coarsening of society. The cast and acting were good. The only weakness was that the material just wasn't funny enough.

It was an ok movie, but not a good film.

The movie was only funny when Jim Carrey was on screen. When he was not on screen, the film was dull and boring and not funny at all. Wait for cable.

Beyond Bad

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 ?
