The Incredible Burt Wonderstone – movie review

WonderstoneGrade: D

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.

Christene Johnson (RunPee Sis)

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.

Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
