About The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
Steve Buscemi, Steve Carell, Jim Carrey and Olivia Wilde (as the obligatory way-too-attractive-for-these-leads female) star in this comedy about squabbling magicians. Burt Wonderstone (Carell) has practised magic since childhood and with his best friend Anton Marvelton (Buscemi) has a successful act in Las Vegas. Everything about their lives is glamorous and glitzy: sparkly suits, fake tan, big bouffants and their beautiful assistant Jane (Wilde). But one day while attempting an outdoor stunt, Anton is injured and decides to leave the act. Burt's life is less than spectacular without Anton and his fame wilts in the shadow of cool street magician Steve Grey (Carrey). Steve doesn't so much represent the new generation as the same generation trying something slightly different just to be obnoxiously hip. Before Burt slides into obscurity forever he must convince Anton to partner up with him again.
