The Incredible Burt Wonderstone 
The Passable Burt Wonderstone
2.5/4 stars

With such a strong group of comedic actors at it's disposal, Steve Carrell, Jim Carrey, and Steve Buscemi, one could only imagine The Incredible Burt Wonderstone to be a non-stop laugh riot. Unfortunately, this is not the case. While there are indeed several laugh out loud moments. The film makers decide to go with the more 'sweet and heartfelt' route, rather than throwing non-stop hilarious gags at the viewer. Another problem is that it plays it quite safe and predictable, when this film probably could have benefited from a R rating and more raunchy material. Still, as it goes, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a good natured story well told with sparkling direction. But with Carrell and especially Jim Carrey (who isn't given enough screen time by half), you can't help but feel it's somewhat of a wasted opportunity. Also, did it have to be as long as it was? Worth a watch, but don't expect anything, well, incredible.
