Carell and Buscemi play superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton, respectively. After a street magician’s (Jim Carrey, Mr. Popper’s Penguins) stunts make their show look stale, they decide for ramp things up by staging their own daring stunt, in an effort to salvage their act and their friendship.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone was directed by Don Scardino, who’s known for helmer TV shows including 30 Rock, and written by Jonathan M. Goldstein (Horrible Bosses) and John Francis Daley, best known as Dr. Lance Sweets on TV’s Bones, but also a writer on Horrible Bosses.
Burt Wonderstone didn’t conjure up a hit in theaters, grossing $22.4 million. But reviews weren’t great. Wasington Post critic Ann Hornaday described the movie as, “A generic, fitfully funny mainstream comedy that doesn’t nearly get the best from its name-brand players but doesn’t qualify as a desecration, either.”
