Best comedy of the year so far!

Honestly, that was a pretty funny movie, and as over-the-top as some of the characters were, it had some valuable life lessons, all while poking fun at the Vegas magic shows of the real world. Both Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi were hilarious in their unique styles, and Jim Carey's mocking of Chris Angel was piss-your-pants funny. I'd say it was the first movie I've seen this year actually worth the $11 I paid for it.

About what I expected, which wasn't much

I'm not a Steve Carell fan, and this movie did nothing to make me feel otherwise. It was a tired and depressing story, and that led to an implausible ending. Jim Carrey and Olivia Wilde (formerly in the House series) had decent performances, but they couldn't make up for a bad plot and two unconvincing lead actors (Carell and Buscemi). Save your money for a movie that instead will star Carrey and Wilde.

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.
