Storyline

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 guerrilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show is starting to look stale. But there's still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act - both onstage and off - if only Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place. Written by stefanstojkov

Abracadabra
27 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Who doesn't like magic and be in aw? That is one of the observations by master magician Rance Holloway (Alan Arkin) as he shares with Burt Wonderstone. In The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, this magician Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carrel) is on the top of his career shared by his magical friendship co- showman Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi). They are on top at the world playing their own show in Las Vegas, then they are challenged by new comer Steve Gray (Jim Carrey) who claims to be a "mind rapist" and not afraid to push the boundaries of normal to get a good reaction. Their challenge is to stay relevant is a world that seeks guts to simply glory. Steve Carrell plays a good "diva" in Burt Wonderstone. This is a silly, funny movie and slyly pokes fun at some well known magicians. I loved it and abracadabra you will soon reappear with a smile.
