John & Becky’s Movie Review Of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

wonderstoneBecky and I took Corban and Bianca to see the new movie The Incredible Burt Wonderstone at the Regal Cinemas in Lone Tree, CO last week. The Fandango website at The Incredible Burt Wonderstone describes the movie as follows…

“Down-on-his-luck Las Vegas magician Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) reunites with his old partner Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) to take on hip illusionist Steve Gray (Jim Carrey) in this comedy from prolific television director Don Scardino. Partners for 30 years, illusionists Burt and Anton made the Las Vegas Strip a magical place to be. But lately Burt and Anton’s ticket sales have plummeted right alongside their once-strong partnership, allowing gritty street wizard Steve Gray..”

The Review: This movie is whacky.  It’s one of those films with Steve Carell and Jim Carrey that is just strange, but fun.  The main characters are over the top goofy, but they are funny.  The movie totally makes fun of magicians in the Las Vegas strip entertainment industry, especially the magicians who do crazy tricks like locking themselves in containers for days and doing insane tricks that can cost them their lives.  It’s actually really funny the way they did the movie because of it.  Jim Carrey’s  character is totally nuts.

Becky and I have seen many of these magicians in Vegas and some of them are better than others.  A few of them were obnoxious and fit the characters in this movie.  I think that’s what made it so funny to us, but be forewarned that it’s pretty stupid humor.  There are some parts that are really funny though and some parts are totally ridiculous.

We all liked it and thought it was worth the price of admission, but you have to be in the mood for this type of a movie and the whacky humor otherwise you should wait for the rental.
