The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

Steve Carell and Jim Carrey team up once again — Remember Bruce Almighty back when Carrey ruled the box office? — but this time, it’s Carell who’s the real draw. Carell plays Burt Wonderstone, an incredible old-school magician with a marvelous sidekick named Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi), who must fend off the advances of an up and coming street performer (Carrey) looking to sneak in and steal the spotlight. Despite the presence of these three noted topliners, I think we should all keep our eyes on Olivia Wilde because she’s been on the verge of a breakout for some time now, and Wonderstone might finally showcase just how wonderful she can be. Now in theaters. (PG-13) Not screened in time for review
