But lately the duo’s greatest deception is their public friendship, while secretly they’ve grown to loathe each other. Facing cutthroat competition from guerrilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), 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 – both onstage and off – if only Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.
Plot: After breaking up with his longtime stage partner, a famous but jaded Vegas magician fights for relevance when a new, “hip” street magician appears on the scene.

_**Amusing flick about magicians with Steve Carell, Jim Carrey and Olivia Wilde**_
Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) achieves his dream of being a successful magician, performing before sold-out crowds in Las Vegas with his partner (Steve Buscemi). But fame & fortune has blinded him and he’s lost the love of the art, even his love for best friends. When a new edgy magician enters the scene (Jim Carrey), it gives Burt a wake-up call and forces him to reexamine his life & career and rediscover his love for magic. Olivia Wilde is on hand as a magician’s assistant while Alan Arkin plays an older magician.
“The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” (2013) didn’t do well at the box office, maybe because of the lousy title. Yet it’s a solid comedy/drama about magicians, traditional ones and edgier modern ones (which some argue don’t perform “true magic”). Olivia looks great and I wish her role was bigger. Gillian Jacobs (Miranda) and Tate Hanyok (Nicole) are also featured on the feminine front. Even David Copperfield shows up.
The biggest laugh is wisely saved for last.
The film runs 1 hour, 40 minutes and was shot in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
The Combination of Magic and Comedy Work Wonders
Burt Wonderstone may be more pleasant than it really deserves credit for. Maybe it’s because the past two months have been such a wasteland for films, or maybe it’s because I am somewhat easily amused. None the less, this is a pleasant film. It didn’t blow me away or leave me crying from laughing so hard, but the combination of the comedic chops of the delightful cast and the entertaining magic tricks left me smiling when I left the theater. In a time when there is little in the theater to get excited about, this is a film I quite enjoyed.
Steve Carell plays magician Burt Wonderstone, the boastful, self-indulgent, and obnoxiously asinine half to Steve Buscemi, who are partners, and best friends since childhood, in the magic business in Vegas. However, both Burt’s obnoxiousness and a new street magician, played by Jim Carrey, soon get in the way of his success, and he’s forced to re-examine what his career means to him.
While the magic might be a mystery here, the plot isn’t, and it’s a plot that goes through all the motions and hits all the points. But if you’re someone who doesn’t mind that, you will find yourself enjoying this film for it’s bright points. Steve Carell is both pompous and lovable here, an idiot savant so to speak, but as a magician lampooning well known, silly performing magicians in Vegas, he’s hilarious. Jim Carrey is the second part of the equation, at his best since years. Jim hasn’t been this funny in a long time and steals the show every time he’s on screen. Rounding out the cast are an underused Steve Buscemi, who disappears for a good chunk of the film, Olivia Wilde who seems like a bit of a mismatch for the goofy Carell, and James Gandolfini as James Gandolfini running a casino. There’s also a wonderful appearance by Alan Arkin as an aging and inspirational magician.
There’s a lot here that works, and a lot that doesn’t. All of the mockery towards magicians of all kinds are spot on. Carell and Buscemi are perfect as send ups of well known magicians like David Copperfield and Jim Carrey is likewise as a caricature of “street magicians” like Criss Angel. And there’s just enough Jim that he’s hilarious, but not obnoxiously overused. Olivia Wilde gets her own spotlight to shine and she’s as pleasant as ever here. And the combination of magic and comedy are a great and somewhat refreshing mix. I’ll also add that just about everything with Alan Arkin is hilarious.
However, the film is pretty formulaic and there’s a lot that feels forced. The love story, for one, feels generic and plastic. It’s hard to believe that, after everything Olivia Wilde’s character goes through with Carell’s character, she falls for him (though there is a particular scene between the two that is pretty hilarious). Most of the plot points also feel very by the numbers. Most of the comedy comes from gags and one-offs.
But, in the end, it all adds up to a fun and entertaining time. If you’re going expecting something amazing, you’ll probably be disappointed, but if you’re going expecting to have a fun time, then I think you will find yourself pleased.
