The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013)


burt“Are you being serious? What’s a webisode? It’s… it’s a show that you do on the internet, just like being on TV or having a movie except you don’t go… through… you know all the hassle of… people seeing it.” – Rick the Implausible

Number of Times Seen – 1  (16 Jun 2013)

Brief Synopsis – Two boyhood friends become world renown magicians and must cope with the changes time brings to their duo.

My Take on it – I like magic tricks and was hoping for a better movie centered the magic theme.  Steve Carell has made good movies for the mainstream viewers in the past {Dan in Real Life (2007) and Little Miss Sunshine (2006) are two great examples), but here he once again fell victim to making an over-the-top movie that makes you cringe throughout.

Steve Buscemi and Jim Carrey play two more magicians who are also acted in an over-the top fashion.

Alan Arkin was great as an aging magician and mentor to the main characters.

Nice cameo by David Copperfield and I liked many of the magic tricks (even though they used special effects for most of them), so it made the movie bearable to watch.

Bottom Line – Some funny bits, some great magic acts, somewhat fun movie to see maybe..maybe just once.

Rating – BAFTA Worthy
