This movie was sooo boring. At times it felt like the lead actors filmed their scenes on different days....ok, this is what's happening...now, react...except they didn't react. The 'hot box' scene could have been very funny, but wasn't. I found myself laughing just because it felt weird not laughing at a comedy. I have to admit I laughed my ***off at one point...at the very end, I mean seconds before the credits, when they showed how they pulled off the "grand illusion". I was so looking forward to seeing this movie too. The only thing enjoyable, for me, was Olivia Wilde. The comedic talent was just wasted on this movie. Such a shame too.

“The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” movie centers around a plot involving the magician characters of Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carrell), Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi), Jane (Olivia Wilde), and Steve Gray (Jim Carey). Steve Carrell and Steve Buscemi give off the wall but convincing performances as magicians who also happen to be both business partners and best friends. Olivia Wilde also gives a natural performance as a woman working for Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton.Jim Carey shrewdly plays an eccentric magician that serves both a humorous and unconventional role in giving great competition to Burt Wonderstone. Carey’s Gray character also helps to eventually bring out the best in Burt Wonderstone on a professional level. It is just entertainment, but I believe that the competition and enemies part also applies in real-life. When seen in a positive light, enemies and competition can bring out the brilliance in a person via professional, spiritual, and/or emotional levels.

What a waste of good talent, great actors looking ridiculous in costumes and a weak story line. The only enjoyable parts were the beginning 5 minutes and Alan Arkins scenes
