I thought this might be funny – liking Steve Carell. This movie is so stupid as to be beyond The characters are unbelievable, the acting is bad, the story makes no sense, it was bad.
It is hard to say anything positive about this movie. Avoid it at all costs. I don't know what they were thinking – it looks like they weren't thinking.
Terrible, terrible, terrible

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.

This movie was distasteful and hard to watch. A lot of gruesome tricks that aren't related to magic in any way. Just bad. I want my money back.

This movie was exactly what I expected - sweet, silly, and worth a few hours on a Saturday afternoon when it was freezing outside. I like stories about people that get selfish, get humbled, and get back on their feet. It's something I can identify with and a theme that we all need reminding of once in awhile. I also liked the idea of reconnecting with the thing that caused you to be passionate about whatever it is that you were once passionate about. Again, something we all need reminding of. The main characters fall out and rediscover their friendship again defeating the bad guy and discover that teams are stronger than individuals. That's a positive message in an America filled with soulless individualism and materialism. If you've got time to kill and need a laugh, then go see this movie. If you don't, then wait for it online, you won't kick yourself.
