What to know

critics consensus

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone serves up some goofy laughs, but given its outrageous conceit, it's surprisingly safe and predictable. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and his partner, Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi), have reigned as kings of the Las Vegas strip for years. Their work rakes in millions of dollars, but the biggest illusion yet is their friendship, for -- now -- time and familiarity have bred contempt between them. When a street magician's increasing popularity threatens to knock them off their thrones, Burt and Anton recognize that they have to repair the relationship and salvage the act.

    Harmless, and easily forgotten.

    The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is an amicable movie starring Steve Carell in the title role, and Steve Buscemi as his lifelong friend and Magic Partner. This film is marketed as a comedy, and has mild laughs, especially when Jim Carrey is on screen as their nemesis, the Criss Angel like Steve Gray. It takes place in Vegas where the duo performs at the luxurious Bally's Hotel (Bally's hasn't been a top flight hotel for years). The romantic interest to Carell's Wonderstone is Olivia Wilde, whose beauty and talent is entirely wasted in this film. There are times when it seems like the writer couldn't decide if this was a straight comedy or a Rom Com.(Romantic Comedy). Small roles of the Late, Great James Gandolifini (As the Casino Owner) and the still fantastic Alan Arkin, as Wonderstone's Mentor and inspiration, over shadow the middling performance by Carell. Carell can play a jerk, in his sleep, which seems like what he is doing in this film.

    I can't believe how many bad reviews I read for this movie.I actually thought it was alright.With Jim Carrey, Steve Carrell, Steve Buscemi & others I guess the movie could've been better.With all the bad reviews I read before I watched The Incredible Burt Wonderstone I was expecting a piece of garbage so I was suprised I liked it at all.There is something off about the movie but I can't figure out what it is.I guess I thought it would be funnier.My main problem was the ending.The movie was fine but the ending just seemed over the top even for a movie.Everything seemed to be going fine up until then
