Has moments...

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.

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.

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.

Argggghhh...Intensely Un-Magical.

By Alon Patterson

This film had promise. With a serious A-list cast, an obviously excessive production budget and the promise of magic in the city of trash glamour, they really should have done better, much better. Parts of this film are about as unfunny as film comedy gets without flying produce directed at the screen. The fact is, it seems like the cast got together for two days for the shoot and were reading it for the first time. It's a bad movie but not a terrible one. You'd probably want to wait for the DVD or stream because it's not worth the price of a matinee ticket. Skip this one. You'll be glad you did.
