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.

Don't waste your time and bucks on this movie. It's an insult to the otherwise fine cast, who could only do so much with the awful script and story. Pass this one up.

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.

From watching the trailer, my wife and I decided we should see this movie, and I'm glad we did! Turned an almost boring weekend into a great one.
