If you want to go out and have a laugh or two, you could do much worse than seeing "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.". I went on a Saturday afternoon and I really enjoyed the flick. You have a pair who have been doing magic for 10 years, but they soon become old and a new guy comes into fold and tries to take their fame away. They will battle it out, and learn some new tricks in order to bring the audience back to them. Who will win? When you are in Vegas, everyone is up against one another and will do everything they can to top one another and be the main man. Go check it out, it was a funny movie and the critics are wrong. It is not the best movie, but it was worth the money.

I find this movie interesting because in a real world, i do believe that in order to be better than someone in the same field, you got to do more and even more crazy things to get people to notice you.

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.

Figured that any movie with Steve Carrell and Jim Carey would have to go over the top early but this movie was steadily funny and enjoyable all the way through. Much of the magic was preposterous but that was less a failure of suspension of belief than a sly wink and an invitation to laugh from the filmmakers.
Alan Arkin has still got it. Steve Buscemi was OK in a role that did not give him much to do. Olivia Wilde is always worth watching. All of the bit players delivered.
Turned out to be worth the time and admission price.
