Product Description

Steve Carell, Jim Carrey and Steve Buscemi star as magicians in this comedy from director Don Scardino. When ticket sales for double act Burt Wonderstone (Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Buscemi)'s Las Vegas stage show begin to dwindle due to new rival Steve Gray (Carrey), the duo pull out all the stops on a big trick. The stunt doesn't go to plan, however, and Anton moves to Cambodia, leaving Burt without a partner or a job. With help from his assistant, Jane (Olivia Wilde), and the magician who inspired him as a child, Rance Hanson (Alan Arkin), Burt tries to rediscover his passion for magic and reunite with Anton.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very silly but very funny. 30 Dec 2013

I am a fan of both Steve Carell and Jim Carrey but I had never heard of this until I was recommended it on Amazon and for 3 or so it was cheap so I picked it up as a stocking filler for my son. We all laughed lots watching this, particularly at Jim Carrey's character, he is crazy and it's worth watching just for him.
We thoroughly enjoyed this so it was definitely money well spent and I have been recommending this to all my friends and family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, light-hearted fun 19 Dec 2013
Format:DVD
Basically, this movie - about two warring magicians - got a lot of flack at the box office and was almost branded `a flop.' Yes, it's no masterpiece. It's not even a comedy masterpiece. Perhaps people expected more because of the talent on display. They may have a point - the film does have a stellar cast and maybe it should have been better, or funnier than it actually is. However, just because it's no classic, doesn't mean that it's not worth watching.

It's light-hearted and easy-going. The gags - while occasionally predictable - are still amusing. You may not have many `belly laughs' but, if you're in the mood for something that isn't very serious and quite frothy, the film should maintain a little smile on your face all the way through.

You may get a little more out of it if you're a fan of any or all of the actors. Steve Carell and Jim Carrey are top-billed and for a reason - they play their (kind of stupid) parts very well.

My only gripe is that it ran for about ten minutes too long in my opinion. It probably could have been trimmed somewhere in the middle to make it just that little bit tighter. Still fun though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Your skin makes me cry.... 17 Nov 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Magicians Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton have ruled the Las Vegas Strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt's ego.

But lately, the duo's greatest trick is their public friendship, secretly they've grown to loathe each other.

Facing competition from a street magician, 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, on-stage and off.

But only if Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place....

If you are a fan of Carell or Carrey, its a no brainier that you will get something out of this. It's high concept nonsense, both actors were born to play characters so left-field and weird, and it works on so many levels.

It's not going to work for many people, as its not as straight forward as Liar Liar, or The 40 Year old virgin, it verges on Anchorman stupidity, but doesn't really go over the stupidity edge, which would have made it that little better.

Carrey plays it straight, but isn't really in it that much, so its all down to Carell, who is ably supported by a fantastic Buscemi, Arkin, and Gandolfini, to iron over the bits that 'shouldn't be this good'.

So all in all, I truly understand why there is so much hate, but I laughed, and isn't that what a comedy is supposed to do?....

5.0 out of 5 stars Really liked it! 6 Aug 2013
Format:DVD
Watched this the other night and really enjoyed it. Steve Carrell is great. Alan Arkin is great. Steve Buscemi is great. James Gandolfini was great in what must have been one of his last performances. Jim Carrey plays a repulsive character who is genuinely abhorrent - so his acting was also great. Worth a watch for some good light-hearted fun.

An interesting storyline with excellent actors. Saw it, bought it so I could see it again and again when I need cheering up!

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny, but in a slightly uncomfortable way 15 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Steve Carrell is funny, but not so much in this movie. I think the role would have been better cast with Will Ferrell in the mould of Chas Michael Michaels of Blades of Glory fame. Carrell is similar to Ferrell in his style, but doesn't pull it off as well. It makes me embarrassed, like watching your dad crying. Grow up for God's sake!

Jim Carrey's character is hilarious, mocking street "magician" David Blaine with his tricks. Wonderstone's charisma is questionable. Overall I would say I found the movie disappointing, and I wouldn't recommend it, although I laughed at a few prize gags, it could have been so much better. It would have been fun to make, but it wasn't so much fun to watch.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK 9 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this in the cinema and was a little underwhelmed but thought I would give it another go on DVD when I saw for only 3. There are some very funny moments but I was still left with a 'it was ok' overall feeling.
