Pass - slow moving, not much fun, and a bit maudlin here and there. Best part: last 10 minutes.

We had high hopes and they were not met---be forewarned, the preview trailers show almost all the best parts of the movie, except for the last 10 minutes. Jim Carrey's character is atrocious and not at all funny. The teenagers in front of us seemed to really enjoy Carrey's ridiculous stunts, when they weren't mauling each other. Olivia Wilde is quite likable. What happened to Gandolfini---still channeling Tony Soprano, but just going through the motions? You're not missing anything. If you feel the need to see it, wait for it to be on video--that will happen very quickly, as it's not going to be in the theaters for long, nor will it be one that gets any repeat viewers.

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.

About what I expected, which wasn't much

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.

Wunder-less Stone.

Withour Alan Arkin, this movie would have been a bust. Jim Carrey was absolutely pitiful and sado-masochistic in his role...nothing funny there. Steve Carell was amusing as well as Buscemi, but the movie grew tiresome, although there were a few genuine moments of pleasure when Carell was entertaining young children at a birthday party, and the opening sequence was promising...Overall, I give the movie **1/2 stars only because of Arkin and his comedic presence and lifting up a dreary script.

Burt Wonderstone

Hi everybody! I am Julian and today I will talk about The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. If you are at all a fan of Steve Carell, Jim Carrey or Steve Buscemi, it's an OK movie. It has it's moments and when these moments are on, you're sure to laugh! But sadly, there aren't enough of these moments to make you "Laugh out loud through the whole flick." But the actor that really got my smile was Steve Buscemi. He was just too funny and he proves in this movie he doesn't have to talk to make you laugh. Did I like it? Yes! Was it hilarious? Mostly! I give Wonderstone a good 'ole 4 stars/5 stars
