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.

From the trailer this looked like a really fun movie that was going to be really stupid at the same time if that makes sense. I am proud to say while this movie is a little over the top and stupid at times it is very funny and i loved this movie. The concept of this movie is brilliant and i'm surprised it hasn't been done before. There can be a good concept and a terrible movie right? Not in this case the outstanding cast just executes this movie perfectly and steve carell is incredible (pun intended),steve buscemi is funny as the abused partner, jim carrey is crazy as a david blane type but my favorite out of all of them is the magical olivia wilde she was great as burts assistant and want to be magician.. I also really enjoyed the soundtrack it fit the movie perfectly it was so light and fast paced and thats also another the movie had going for it, it was very fast paced and the run tine just flew by so as far as comedies go this is a very good one thats why i'm giving it a 8.5/10

Steve Buscemi was a dud as Wonderstons partner.Thank god they had Jim Carry and James Gandoifini to save the movie.The theater was quite thru most of the movie but did have its moments.

All I can say is that I can't remember the last time I constantly laughed out loud through an entire movie. This movie was incredibly funny at the same time it was touching and actually had a moral...And how can you not love a movie that has Steve Carell, jim Carey, Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde and Alan Arkin!?!?!Totally engaging from beginning to end!!
