When it hits the right notes, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a frivolous joy, with Carrey stealing the rug from under his co-stars with all the joie de vivre of his earlier comic outings.

Jim Carrey IS this movie. Jim Carrey as funny Jim Carrey is always fun to watch.

With its silly, glittery costumes and warring stars, this basically does for magic what Blades Of Glory did for ice skating.

Refreshingly single-minded in its aim to entertain, Wonderstone has no social agenda, no artistic aspirations, no enduring lessons - other than, perhaps, the universality of lifelong friendship.

Flawed, but its affability is undeniable.

Carrey is the movie's ace up its sleeve. He's at his frighteningly manic best. If the Academy ever considered awards for comedies released in March, Carrey certainly deserves one.

Normally, this type of comedy would be a fun, forgettable ride. But these days, it feels like a welcomed wonder.
March 26, 2013
A sweet film with a message of never giving up on your dreams, "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" gets by on the magic of a game cast.

Conjures up some laughs, if nothing else
March 21, 2013
In The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, Jim Carrey makes a great freak, and Carell and Buscemi are total geeks.
March 20, 2013
Big silly fun in the Anchorman vein, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is packed with great gags, recognisable characters and performances from comedians at the top of their game.
March 17, 2013
As lightweight as a ping-pong ball, this charming, slightly over-extended comedy sends up films about showbiz rivalries.
March 17, 2013
Fitfully amusing, but does its own disappearing act from your mind as soon as you leave the cinema.
March 15, 2013
Any sense of the ponderous in telling this tale with a definite moral is more than offset by the gentle silliness with which the story is told.
March 15, 2013
much better than it has any business being
March 15, 2013
The true comeback story in this fictional comeback story doesn't belong to a character named Burt Wonderstone, but to an actor named Jim Carrey.

If Siegfried dumped Roy and then launched a vendetta against Criss Angel, you'd have The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. It's a funny movie that is also more thoughtful than it initially appears.

The movie has some funny moments, but too often they come at the expense of character consistency.
March 15, 2013
This comedy about a magician who must hit bottom before rising again to the wonder of his beloved craft pulls plenty of sweet moments and a slew of laughs out of a story that might have been thin air.
March 15, 2013
While not the laugh riot it could have been, this comedy consistently amuses us with its pastiche characters and silly gags. It threatens to get bogged down in sentiment at a few points along the way, but manages to veer back.
