I normally love my comfy job but “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” was really like working. I couldn’t wait for it to be over.
Watching the trailers I figured there would be some cool magic tricks and of course some really cool characters. How can you go wrong with a cast of Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi and Jim Carrey? It’s gotta be great right? Wrong.
They over used Carell and under played Buscemi. Olivia Wilde was totally forgettable. The only one that stood out was Jim Carrey. He was a little Criss Angel and Ace Ventura Pet Detective rolled into one. His character, Steve Gray, will mind rape you. He doesn’t have much time on screen and I think they made another mistake there.
All in all the movie was weak. There were a few laugh out loud moments but not as many as there should have been considering the splendid cast. Don’t expect to be blown away because you’ll walk out feeling let down.
