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
It had been a while since i watched a movie and after watching it, I had to ask myself, what did I just watch? what was the point?
Having heard about this movie before and looking at the list of actors in it, I had high hopes for it, as each of them have been pretty good in different roles up to now.
But somehow after watching this movie I ended up disliking all of them, In my view there is lots of talent in this movie but somehow it has been wasted, I did not find this movie funny at all, i did not feel any chemistry between the actors and somehow it felt as thou they do not really know how they should try to make the audience laugh.
Of course the story of the movie is nothing new, but I was hoping an old tale is going to be told with lots of laughter and funny moments but unfortunately I was very wrong!
