“I take people’s nightmares and turn them into dream-realities.”
Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) are a famous and favoured Las Vagas Magic act. They have been doing the same show for over 10 years. But due to a new trend of magic (Street magic) Burt and Anton are forced to do something new which ends in Burts sidekick getting injured, Anton moves to the Far East and the partnership ends. Leaving Burt overshadowed by a popular street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey).
Honestly The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a good film and I did enjoy it however I was a little disappointed simply because if you look at the talent that’s in this film it should have been better. Maybe my expectations were too high.
Jim Carrey stole every scene he was in. Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi shared some good on screen chemistry as the magical duo. All in all a good film with some good comedy moments.
