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

Goofs

At the birthday party for Doug Munney's son, in the background you can see a large body of water with no barriers suggesting a cliff side home overlooking the ocean. The film is set in Las Vegas, Nevada. The largest body of water is Lake Meade. But unlike larger lakes in the Michigan, Chicago or Wisconsin area, there are high cliffs which border Lake Meade. It would be impossible to get any kind of view or shot of Lake Meade without showing the cliff side borders.

The background doesn't not show a large body of water, rather it shows a hazy sky overlooking a valley. Its blue hue might be mistaken for a body of water. Other shots in the same sequence actually show mountains, houses, and buildings in the distance. See more »

A mediocre and forgettable comedy
20 April 2013 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about two long time magician partners who perform in Las Vegas. Their show goes stale and they have to find ways to reinvent themselves.

"The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" has a simple plot, which tells the standard tale of two magicians who team up from childhood, cooperate, fall out and make up. The story is too plain and predictable, and it drags on a bit long. It takes half an hour of screen time before the idea of reinvention comes up, which is too long. The friendship subplot is not so touching and affecting either. The only interesting character is Jim Carrey as an unconventional magician with disturbing acts. I am impressed by how he could turn one eye to one side and the other eye is looking ahead. Overall, "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" is a mediocre and a rather forgettable comedy.
