Movie Reviews

  • 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
    2 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • what makes the minor-league dumbness of "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" so disappointing is that the film has at least some of the ingredients of a shrewd American satire
    by Andrew O'Hehir [ ]
  • there's no question that you will laugh at times throughout "Burt Wonderstone." But if you are looking for something truly magical, you will come away disappointed
    2 of 4 by Charlie McCollum [San Jose Mercury News ]
  • 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 ]
  • 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
    3 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • it's part comedy, part drama, part romance, part bromance, part comeuppance, part redemption, part nostalgia trip, part social critique, partly sweet, partly gross . . . and a whole lot of nothing that really clicks
    1.5 of 4 by Peter Howell [Toronto Star ]
  • but it's Jim Carrey's transformation into a wild-eyed reality-show shaman that provides The Incredible Burt Wonderstone with its only true "how'd he do that?" trick
    by Dana Stevens [Slate ]
  • as the end credits roll, "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" finally rises to comic inspiration when the secret behind the hero's climactic Disappearing Audience Trick is revealed
    2 of 4 by Ty Burr [Boston Globe ]
  • Alan Arkin does the best trick, bringing a dollop of humanity to the role of Rance Holloway, the magician who was young Burt's inspiration
    by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal ]
  • "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" can't transcend the fundamental problem built into movies and television shows about magic
    2 of 5 by Stephen Holden [New York Times ]
