Story


Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) have ruled the Las Vegas strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt's growing ego. But lately the duo's greatest deception is their public friendship, while secretly they've grown to loathe each other. Facing cutthroat competition from guerilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), whose cult followingsurges with each outrageous stunt, even their show looks stale. But there's still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act-both onstage and off-if Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the movie is pleasant. It's reasonably funny. But the one who gets the real laughs here, the hard laughs, is Carrey, who plays the kind of role he should be playing - a complete lunatic..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..there are some funny bits and characters around the edges of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, but its core is empty of humor..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]
“..what might have been an entertaining, silly comedy opts for pseudo-earnestness over movie magic. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone just goes through the motions and conjures up cliches..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
