"The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” directed by Emmy Awards wining television director and producer Don Scardino and featuring outstanding performances from Steve Carell as Burt Wonderstone, Steve Buscemi as Anton Marvelton, Olivia Wilde as Jan and Jim Carrey as Steve Gray.
This comedy is filled with amusing gags and tells the story of a young boy finding magic to make up for his weakness to mesh well with people. His magic catches the attention of another boy. A decade later and the two of them are now performing one of the leading hotels in Las Vegas. But, when a street magician, Steve Gray appears on the show, Burt and Anton's audience start to decline. Now with a five year contract in a vulnerable position, it's their battle royal to see who can be the master magician of LV.
Both lead actors are hilarious in their roles as magicians exhausted of doing their same old stuff before a flattering audience. It is wonderful to see them work jointly. Their cheesy costumes and wig add a nice comedic feel. The two compliment each other entertainingly, and audience can tell that performing their magic tricks has become a bit of a task for them.
This is one of those films that are just fun to watch and worth a rental and might make for a date night movie.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download on June 25, 2013. Both discs will have the following extras:
