I'm not a Steve Carell fan, and this movie did nothing to make me feel otherwise. It was a tired and depressing story, and that led to an implausible ending. Jim Carrey and Olivia Wilde (formerly in the House series) had decent performances, but they couldn't make up for a bad plot and two unconvincing lead actors (Carell and Buscemi). Save your money for a movie that instead will star Carrey and Wilde.

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!!

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.

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.

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.
