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.

I love Steve Carrell and usually enjoy Jim Carrey movies. This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. There were only two points in the movie where I may have laughed, but nothing more than a snicker. The only truly good thing during this movie was the popcorn and drink that cost more than the movie ticket itself.

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.

This movie is hilarious and great! Although I wasn't a huge fan of the beginning when Burt was a little kid, the rest was great, especially the end. Don't want to ruin it! The acting was very good, and the cinematography was also great. The writing was also pretty good; however, it's one of those that you may like or not. I enjoyed it. I recommend this for teens and adults. This is one of those comedy movies that you may like or not. If you aren't sure, just wait to rent it or buy it on DVD or Blu-Ray.
