Very funny in parts. As a whole it was sorta weak. But I was entertained. I just wish I'd either gone to the half-price early movie or watched it on cable. There are some good laughs and inspired performances but I wish it were a bit funnier.

If you have watched Bruce Almighty or the 40 Year Old Virgin more than once and laugh at the same jokes every time, this movie is for you. Otherwise, I am sure it will be entertaining for the rest of you, just not as funny to the people that do not understand their humor.

The movie was OK but I was a little disappointed. I'm big fans of Steve Carell and Jim Carrey, so I expected it to be very funny. Carrey did very well and he should have had a bigger part in the movie. I thought Carell's performance was mediocre at best. I'm still glad I saw it, just thought it could have been better.

Good premise, good potential, and great cast... but it just didn't measure up to what it could have been. The comedic and satirical timing were off, and the story had several directions it could have pursued and been really good. Seemed to be indecisive on direction... ironic since it's about magic and misdirection.

Didn't quite care for it. I thought the movie would be funny with Jim Carey and Steve Carrell but no. Don't waste your money. The tricks Jim Carey does is disgusting. Steve's was ok.
Even my son that I took to the movie hated it.
