I love Steve Buscemi. I adore Steve Carrell. I really like Olivia Wilde & Jim Carey. I loathed this movie. If The Incredible Burt Wonderstone was a burger, it would have been inedible. I would have gotten food poisoning & could have vomited the rancid meal. Unfortunately, I cannot purge the hour and a half of crap from my memory. I almost fell asleep. I wasted a good Sunday night and a good $35. My only solace is that one of you will read this and heed my humble review. Stay away, dear reader. If you like a good story line, sharp writing, or a funny comedy, do not see this movie. And if you must, because you're an 18 year old boy, please wait until you can rent it from netflix or red box. It is definitely not worth more than $1. Why didn't I walk out? Because the first 5 minutes was good. And i was hoping, wishing, & praying it would improve. Alas, it did not.

I like Steve Carell in general so was really looking forward to this fim. As it began I kept waiting for the funny parts to happen. I waited and waited. I even waited some more. There were a couple parts that got a chuckle but, overall, it was a dud. The writing was poor. There just seemed to be very little for him to be funny about. There were a few teenage girls that laughed a few times in the theater but I think they were laughing about something else. Swing and a miss.

Really the 4 other people in the theatre didn't get the memo either about how bad this movie is and a few chuckles but nothing to laugh at except that I actually sat through the whole move expecting something good to see.
Yes the very large theatre was empty.

I am clueless how anyone has given this movie an even remotely decent review. Clearly those people either saw a different movie or they were on drugs when watching it. This was hands down the WORST WORST WORST film I have ever seen. Not a single scene was funny. It was incredibly stupid. Horrible script. I kept contemplating walking out of the move the entire time but didn't have to pay to see it kept hoping that maybe it would get better from how horrible it already was. Sad to see the usually funny Jim carrey in such a horrible movie that does him no good at all. Cause it WASNT funny!! Even if you don't have to pay to see it like me, DONT SEE IT! biggest waste of time I ever spent.
