I’ve been seeing commercials for this upcoming movie for a while now. It just came out in theaters as of today! and Just by looking at the promos for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone I could say this looks like this could be a very funny movie. Let’s start off with this amazing cast. It seems like the producers picked the best of the best and the funniest of all the funniest comedians.
The movie is about two magicians Burt Wonderstone played by Steve Carell and Anton Marvelton played by Steve Buscemi who felt like they were on top of the world with their classical magic acts. They may have been on top of the world like twenty years ago. While their acts are getting old a new modern day magician named Steve Gray played by Jim Carrey is making a scene with crazy stunts that people are loving. So Burt get’s help from the person that made him start loving Magic in the first place, the magician Rance Holloway played by Alan Arkin to come up with crazy stunts of their own to hopefully get back their fame. Can they do it? From what I’m seeing from the promo I would give it a 4 out of 5. I would give it all 5 points but hey I haven’t seen it yet. It wouldn’t be fair to the movies I have already seen.
Here’s the four leading men:
A very funny guy I would say best known for playing Michael Scott on the Office. He’s playing Burt Wonderstone a man who lived for magic since he was little when he got his first magic kit to be just like Rance. But since him and his child hood friend Anton’s magic career is going down hill Burt tries to think of crazy stunts to get their fame back.
This comedian got his first shot on In living color. He plays Steve Grey, A new popular up and coming magian who does crazy stunts that are taking over the world. One of his stunts is holding his pee for more then a human should. It’s funny because his character reminds me so much of Criss Angel.
Best known for some of his roll’s in the Cohen brother’s films. Steve plays Anton Marvelton Burt’s best friend and his magic sidekick.
Is a famous singer, producer and author etc. He plays Rance Holloway Burt’s childhood hero in the magic world.
