You are just begging for the mockery when you put an adjective like "Incredible" right in the title, so the folks behind The Incredible Burt Wonderstone had to deliver, or suffer the ignominy of puns being tossed at them like rotten eggs hurled at the house of the guy who gives apples to Trick-Or-Treaters.
Steve Carell stars as Burt Wonderstone - one of the most successful magicians in the history of Vegas, and his life is falling apart in truly comedic fashion. The act he created with his best friend, Anton (Steve Buscemi) is starting to get tired. People aren't buying tickets the way they used to. The casino owner, Doug Munny (James Galdolfini), wants to fire him, and a new magician, Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), is starting to challenge his status as the top dog, so we have to wonder if Burt has what it takes to get back to the top.
