Review: The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

Release Date:  March 15, 2013
Running Time: 100 minutes
Starring: Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde, Jim Carrey
Who to see it with: Someone who likes stupid comedy movies


This movie is not a masterpiece.  It's not even a great movie.  But, it's a really funny comedy.  Is it predictable?  Yes.  Does it have stupid jokes?  Yes.  But does it have many great laugh-out-loud moments?  Yes.  Is the cast phenomenal and enjoyable as their over the top characters?  Yes.  Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi make a very funny combination and the addition of Olivia Wilde as their assistant adds to the comedy.  Finally, Jim Carrey is just perfect as an eccentric street magician.  The plot is predictable but well done.  The jokes are funny, the magic tricks are over the top, and the movie ends on a high note.  The last scene is probably the best moment of the movie and it's always a plus when a movie ends strong and leaves you laughing.  All in all, just know what you're getting into.  If you want to see a funny comedy that's not going to blow you away, see it.  Otherwise,

Rent it.
