Storyline Heading
Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton have ruled the Las Vegas strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt's growing ego. Facing cutthroat competition from guerilla street magician Steve Gray, whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show looks stale. But there's still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act -- both onstage and off -- if Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a comedy aimed an adult audience. Fans of the stars should enjoy though Jim Carrey's role is a small supporting one, and Steve Carell is the main lead. Some language and suggestive humor, plus some tricks that should not be imitated by kids, make this one of caution for parents of young children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average The movie offers just enough jokes not to fall into the "wretchedly unwatchable" category but it's as forgettable as a motion picture can be.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good And then there's Carrey, reaching deep into the trick bag that turned him into a star some 20 years ago. He's physical, he's intense, he's ridiculous — and he made me laugh more than any comedic character in recent memory.

USA Today Full Review
Average 'Incredible Burt Wonderstone' has no humor up its sleeve

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Average 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' is momentarily diverting, but it's also destined to disappear quickly.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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 guerilla 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.
