The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
Over the weekend I went to go so see The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. Cast includes Steve Carell, Jim Carrey, Alan Arkin, Olivia Wilde, Steve Buscemi, and James Gandolfini.
Going into this, I knew this was going to be a rather cheesy comedy. And that it was. It was still quite fun and enjoyable. Magicians will enjoy it even more since they'll recognize the amalgom of magicians the characters are based off of as well as all of the back and forth theoretical bickering found at places online like the Magic Cafe.
Steve Carrell had some funny moments but I think Jim Carrey and Alan Arkin were the best. Ha, and I laugh just thinking about the birthday party and the puppy scene...
Should you go see it? If you like cheesy comedies with a thin plot then you won't be disappointed. I don't mean that as a bad thing. Sometimes we all like a simple comedic piece that's a fun movie to waste some time by.
Here's the trailer...
