The movie was a disappointment to me and my wife. With the available talent in the cast I was suprised it turned out the way it did. Jim Carrey was good as Steve Gray, Steve Carell... just not believable playing a very self centered magician. Steve Buscemi was ok too. The movie seemed to lag on a bit. Typical story line easily figured out early on in the movie. There were many ways they could have gone with the characters on the story line to make it more convincing and entertaining to the viewer........

Got a little lax in the middle but the 2nd half was a lot of fun to watch.

This movie was exactly what I expected - sweet, silly, and worth a few hours on a Saturday afternoon when it was freezing outside. I like stories about people that get selfish, get humbled, and get back on their feet. It's something I can identify with and a theme that we all need reminding of once in awhile. I also liked the idea of reconnecting with the thing that caused you to be passionate about whatever it is that you were once passionate about. Again, something we all need reminding of. The main characters fall out and rediscover their friendship again defeating the bad guy and discover that teams are stronger than individuals. That's a positive message in an America filled with soulless individualism and materialism. If you've got time to kill and need a laugh, then go see this movie. If you don't, then wait for it online, you won't kick yourself.

Definitely giggle worthy, there could have been a little more meat in the plot, but compared to other movies out there, this was a good date night. Steve Carrell never fails to entertain, and Jim Carey does a great piss take on a Criss Angel type street magician. Don't expect too much and just enjoy the show.
