But missed the mark. Laughed more at my friends who were laughing at the ridiculous attempts at humor. Not as crude as some recent comedies so i give them cudos for that!

Didn't quite care for it. I thought the movie would be funny with Jim Carey and Steve Carrell but no. Don't waste your money. The tricks Jim Carey does is disgusting. Steve's was ok.
Even my son that I took to the movie hated it.

This is a comedy about two boys that grow up to become headlining Las Vegas magicians . Steve C & Steve B play the two friends [Steve C has the bigger ego] . Olivia plays their pretty assistant [that just has her own goal of becoming a headlining act] . Alan plays the original magician that inspired the two Steves to get into the field of prestidigitation , in the first place . Jim plays a street magician that does more of a shocking magic act [just think along the lines of Criss Angel] . There is a fierce competition between the Steves and Jim [neither of them likes the other's style of magic] . David Copperfield is a consultant on the movie [and also makes a cameo appearance] .
It's rated "PG-13" for sexual content , dangerous stunts and language and has a running time of 1 hour & 40 minutes .
I enjoyed it and would buy it on DVD .

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone has a heartwarming story as its base and some talented and funny actors that bring the laughs. We really enjoyed the performances of Steve Carell, Jim Carey, Steve, Buschemi, and Olivia Wilde. I was also pleasantly surprised to see a cameo by John Francis Daily (Freaks & Geeks, Bones) which totally made sense when I saw he was one of the screenwriters. It's a funny and heartfelt story, with a hilarious ending that is not to be missed!

This is an entertaining movie. It s pretty clean (the F-word one time, however). It has a lot of gross-out humor (the Jim Carey parts) but the rest of it is clever and original. Alan Arkin is always a great actor and lends his class to this movie. This movie spoofs the Cris Angel type of acts and the 'animal magicians' epitomized by Siegfried and Roy. Thoroughly enjoyable. A great time. Please go and be entertained.
