Better than I thought it'd be

I had no expectations that this would be good. But it caught me off guard as being better than I thought it would be. Steve Buscemi, while still being an amazing actor is also still the most awkward guy in Hollywood. Steve Carrell was good. Jim Carrey... I know what your role was about - but I easily could have lived without you in the movie

Total waste of talent

This movie had great stars and it wasted so much talent. I cannot say any one moment was really worth remembering. The dialog was not funny. I'm a fan of all the star... what a let down. The last skit that Jim Carey did seemed twisted sick along with his brain rapist title. The only magic to this movie was it made the fun go away.

Save your money

It must have cost a lot to get these big-name stars, but the script writing and plot are horrible. I think I may have laughed once during the entire movie. It was difficult to stay awake all the way through it. It was really pathetic.

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.

The Mediocre Burt Wonderzzzzz...

I love Steve Buscemi. I adore Steve Carrell. I really like Olivia Wilde & Jim Carey. I loathed this movie. If The Incredible Burt Wonderstone was a burger, it would have been inedible. I would have gotten food poisoning & could have vomited the rancid meal. Unfortunately, I cannot purge the hour and a half of crap from my memory. I almost fell asleep. I wasted a good Sunday night and a good $35. My only solace is that one of you will read this and heed my humble review. Stay away, dear reader. If you like a good story line, sharp writing, or a funny comedy, do not see this movie. And if you must, because you're an 18 year old boy, please wait until you can rent it from netflix or red box. It is definitely not worth more than $1. Why didn't I walk out? Because the first 5 minutes was good. And i was hoping, wishing, & praying it would improve. Alas, it did not.
