Funny from start to finish

I really enjoyed the movie and laughed pretty consistently (much to my son's horror) just about all the way through the movie. Not an epic adventure but, it's not what I was expecting. I went to relax, have fun and laugh. Mission accomplished.

Hillarious!!

I have to say I expected much less. It was hillarious the entire time and with all star cast like that how could it not be! The ending was fantastic and especially the scene before the credits where it shows how they pulled off the grand illusion I laughed my butt off!! I think it had a great story line and great turn of events. The only thing I was slightly disappointed in was the length and Jim Carreys parts. They could have made it longer with more laughs and more tricks. And Jim Carrey should have been more in the movie. It is not a movie for young kids with a few sex scenes and a few gross violent scenes with Jim Carrey. Overall I think it was a great movie with many laughs, and all star cast, great story line and turn of events, great acting, and amazingly made! Worth your time Worth your money Worth your laughs!!!

Wonderful Burt Wonderstone

Steve Carell +Steve Buscemi + Jim Carrey = Great Chemistry Fresh ideas in comedy movies often devolve into potty humor and cursing to make up for the lack of plot development. This isn't one of those movies. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone takes its fresh idea and completely fleshes it out from beginning to end. The acting is good and the audience will feel like they are actually watching magic be performed. Wonderful and delightful are great adjectives to describe this movie. I chuckled, I laughed, but I realized that especially towards the end of the movie, I had a perma-smile on my face. This movie is a solid go. It will put you into a good mood! There are no scenes during or after the credits. If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back!

Perfect comedy casting, yet not what you would think!

Wow! Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, Jim Carey, Alan Arkin. Powerhouse comedic actors. This will be the funniest movie ever, right? Wrong! It certainly has its moments where you chuckle, but overall, this movie falls short. It's almost as if this movie was written in a few days without a whole lot of thought put into it. The ending was horrible, and you feel like the director ran out of time, and needed to make a final cut quickly. Oh, James Gandolfini is really trying to break into mainstream acting roles, but his attempts at trying to speak nothing like Tony Soprano are futile. Wackin people, and being an organized crime boss is where he seems most organic. It's good for a rental once it comes out on DVD or On-Demand, but not worth the $14 to see it in the movie.

Not magical

Alan Arkin really shines. The movie could use a better script and better direction. Not suitable for young kids. Lots of tasteless segments that did nothing to promote the story. Not magical.
