This movie will take you through a range of emotions. There a plenty of laugh out loud moments, and there's an excellent message or two in there, too. Alan Arkin's character is excellent, and of course Olivia Wilde plays her character quite well. And she's wonderful to look at, too. Jim Carrey is an absolute hoot. This is a clean movie, too, so tweens and up should enjoy this. All in all, excellent entertainment.

Really funny movie with a great cast. Could've been done better but I would absolutely recommend this.

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 ?

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.
