From the trailer this looked like a really fun movie that was going to be really stupid at the same time if that makes sense. I am proud to say while this movie is a little over the top and stupid at times it is very funny and i loved this movie. The concept of this movie is brilliant and i'm surprised it hasn't been done before. There can be a good concept and a terrible movie right? Not in this case the outstanding cast just executes this movie perfectly and steve carell is incredible (pun intended),steve buscemi is funny as the abused partner, jim carrey is crazy as a david blane type but my favorite out of all of them is the magical olivia wilde she was great as burts assistant and want to be magician.. I also really enjoyed the soundtrack it fit the movie perfectly it was so light and fast paced and thats also another the movie had going for it, it was very fast paced and the run tine just flew by so as far as comedies go this is a very good one thats why i'm giving it a 8.5/10

Hit and miss comedy, pulls at the right parts and wrong parts of humor

With an excellent cast, I went in with high expectations and left with a mixed bag of sentiments. Overall, the movie is OK, not the best but not the worst. The story setting and characters pull upon every segment of magicians and show business by executing parodies of some of the most popular magic acts of our times. From Siegfried and Roy, David Copperfield, Cris Angel, and David Blain. However where it misses for me, though I admit I found some moments funny, is the bit of awkwardness, jokes that came off a bit more tasteless than funny, and the absurd moments were more disturbing than absurd, though some moments do have their moments. The story's plot carries the movie and the plot twists are good as the character conflicts quickly wrap the story up in a redeemable manner.

It must have cost a lot to get these big-name stars, but the script writing and plot are horrible. I think I may have laughed once during the entire movie. It was difficult to stay awake all the way through it. It was really pathetic.

Burt Wonderstone

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

All I can say is that I can't remember the last time I constantly laughed out loud through an entire movie. This movie was incredibly funny at the same time it was touching and actually had a moral...And how can you not love a movie that has Steve Carell, jim Carey, Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde and Alan Arkin!?!?!Totally engaging from beginning to end!!
