Popular magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Lovecraft (Steve Buscemi) are longtime Las Vegas favorites, but their show has become stale. Meanwhile, an up-and-coming street magician (Jim Carrey) begins to steal their audience.
Burt becomes cynical and jaded, but when he bumps into his original mentor, Rance Hanson (Alan Arkin), he remembers why he wanted to become a magician in the first place. With help from magic assistant Jane (Olivia Wilde), Rance inspires Burt to renew his passion for illusion and win his fans back.
With Carell, Carey and Buscemi I thought this movie couldn't miss. It did. I didn't get through the first hour. This movie blew chunks.
Better than expected...Jim Carrey does a great impersonation of Chris Angel. Good laughs.
