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

Better than I expected
8 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

I didn't have very high expectations for this movie, given what I had heard about it. With that being said, I was left wondering why this movie didn't get more positive reviews/higher ratings.

There were moments that left me thinking that it was going to go in a very predictable direction and disappoint me in the end, but I was wrong.

I think Jim Carrey really held this movie together. I couldn't hold back laughing every time he came on the screen. One of his better roles as of late.

I would recommend that you definitely give this movie a chance, regardless of what you've read/heard.
