Der unglaubliche Burt Wonderstone: Directed by Don Scardino. With Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde, Jim Carrey. A veteran Vegas magician tries to revive his career after his longtime partner quits, he gets fired from his casino act, and an edgy new “street magician” steals his thunder.
“This film is about two long time magician partners who perform in Las Vegas. Their show goes stale and they have to find ways to reinvent themselves.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;The Incredible Burt Wonderstoneu0026quot; has a simple plot, which tells the standard tale of two magicians who team up from childhood, cooperate, fall out and make up. The story is too plain and predictable, and it drags on a bit long. It takes half an hour of screen time before the idea of reinvention comes up, which is too long. The friendship subplot is not so touching and affecting either. The only interesting character is Jim Carrey as an unconventional magician with disturbing acts. I am impressed by how he could turn one eye to one side and the other eye is looking ahead. Overall, u0026quot;The Incredible Burt Wonderstoneu0026quot; is a mediocre and a rather forgettable comedy.”
