in usual Steve Carroll fashion this movie is funny and worth seeing. for those that are really cheap then see it Matinee style. cool storyline about kids being magicians and growing up to be come Vegas headliners. Then in true Vegas life of a headliner there show gets dull. Jim Carrey playing the Criss Angel like anti-hero is funny. You will get a few good laughs in an overall good movie that I would recommend.

A must see if you like to laugh at stupid humor. Also, if you know some of the Las Vegas hotel history, it makes it even funnier. I loved it! I was expecting to laugh and be entertained and I was certainly not disappointed. This movie was hilarious!

Wonderfully Magical

The characters were played better than I thought it was going to be done. I found myself waiting for the next trick. It brought me back to my childhood with my first magic set. The tricks were not cheesy and like a little kid watching a magic show, the movie actually did a great job keeping my attention the whole way through. Then end surprised me how well it all came together. they could have gone in many directions but I can't imagine a better ending (without spoiling it of course) I walked away feeling great. I may have actually enjoyed this movie a little better than the average movie goer just because I did spend a huge portion of my childhood with many magic acts that I did myself. But also take it as a person who grew up with it, the movie was magical to me. It earned my money for admission it took my away to another place for a wonderful story. what more can you ask for?

Best comedy of the year so far!

Honestly, that was a pretty funny movie, and as over-the-top as some of the characters were, it had some valuable life lessons, all while poking fun at the Vegas magic shows of the real world. Both Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi were hilarious in their unique styles, and Jim Carey's mocking of Chris Angel was piss-your-pants funny. I'd say it was the first movie I've seen this year actually worth the $11 I paid for it.
