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

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.

This film had promise. With a serious A-list cast, an obviously excessive production budget and the promise of magic in the city of trash glamour, they really should have done better, much better. Parts of this film are about as unfunny as film comedy gets without flying produce directed at the screen. The fact is, it seems like the cast got together for two days for the shoot and were reading it for the first time. It's a bad movie but not a terrible one. You'd probably want to wait for the DVD or stream because it's not worth the price of a matinee ticket. Skip this one. You'll be glad you did.

This movie was OK. Good performances but the movie itself was just so so. It wasn't terrible... I laughed. But I also won't be quoting this movie for years to come. It was kind of like eating a plain water cracker... I know I put something in my mouth but I wont' remember that I did it 2 days later.

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
