Directed by Don Scardino
When a street magician's stunt begins to make their show look stale, superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton look to salvage on their act - and their friendship - by staging their own daring stunt.
Anchorman has a lot to answer for. While it's undoubtedly a funny movie, it's almost given the all-clear for comedies to have an unlikeable lead character that you can at least laugh at because he says funny things.
But unlike Anchorman, at its very core the main problem with The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is that Wonderstone simply isn't a strong enough character to carry the movie. He has a few good lines here and there and some of his characteristics are humorous, but he's not funny enough to move the film past anything other than 'okay'. »
