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

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.

Magic is funny

If you've thought about seeing this movie, go see it. It's not going to knock your socks off, but if you thought it looked funny, you'll probably enjoy it like I did. It took me back to my days of performing out of a magic kit as a child and my dreams of being a magician. What's great about this movie is that it doesn't try to be something it's not. It's there for entertainment and to make you smile. You'll laugh, you'll appreciate your friends, you'll question what magic really is and what it's for, and why we're obsessed with the ridiculous (and sometimes grotesque) stunts we call "illusion" today. The cast is great, the acting is fun, and the underlying message about friendship being more important than fame and popularity is heartwarming in it's own goofy way. If you're on the fence, maybe wait and rent it. If you're looking for a good time and thought the previews were funny, it will make you smile and send you home appreciating those you love.
