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

So So Comedy
29 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good comedy has a ring of truth and reality to it. This movie was mostly nonsensical. It had some laughs here and there, but I was pretty much the only one in the audience of three parties laughing. I think the comedians in it are funny, but the story is kind of shallow and stupid.

It wasn't a total waste of time but it wasn't something that held your attention very well either. It was sort of a time killer type comedy. Parts of it were just plain disgusting or scary, making it hard to laugh. People in the audience actually seemed to be in a bad mood watching it.

Jim Carey was funny as a sex symbol magician and Alan Arkin was funny as a cranky old man. They were just funny characters. There were little ironic jokes here and there but the piece didn't hold together well.
