Plot Summary
Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and his partner, Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi), have reigned as kings of the Las Vegas strip for years. Their work rakes in millions of dollars, but the biggest illusion yet is their friendship, for -- now -- time and familiarity have bred contempt between them. When a street magician's increasing popularity threatens to knock them off their thrones, Burt and Anton recognize that they have to repair the relationship and salvage the act.

  • Magicians have been pulling rabbits out of hats for ages. And yet, with all this talent, no one can make a decent script materialize. show more

  • Alan Arkin does the best trick, bringing a dollop of humanity to the role of Rance Holloway, the magician who was young Burt's inspiration. Apart from Rance, the whole production is slovenly nonsense, photographed on the cheap with blaring ghastliness. Yet it poses an intriguing mystery. Did the producers appeal to a denominator even lower than common by making their film as dumb as possible, or did it just turn out that way? show more

  • Enjoyable but as familiar as the old-school routines its magician heroes dish out. show more

    I was expecting many more laughs. Yet, a decent movie. Probably not something I will watch again. Several scenes where I had expected a build-up of laughs completely missed the point.
