The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

Here's a short review for you.  No.  Just no.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a movie about entertainers.  Let's review; It's a form of entertainment about entertainers.  Somehow, being entertained is the only thing you won't experience while watching this pile of crap.  You may, however, feel nauseous, bored, angry, annoyed, and slightly aroused.
 Literally the only reason to even consider watching this movie.

The plot:  A magician and his partner do the same act for decades and don't understand when they get fired.  Jim Carrey's character gains popularity by doing Chris Angel style stunts that leave him wounded.  A rivalry forms.  At this point I seriously started to think about my taxes and I'm pretty sure there was nothing left of note anyways.

Even though this film has comedians Jim Carrey and Steve Carell, you won't laugh once.  You won't even crack a smile, a grin, a smirk.  For 2 hours if a doctor looked at your face he would pronounce you dead.  Unfortunately you wouldn't be, you'd still be watching this.
The best part of this movie for me was the excuse to google pictures of Olivia Wilde.
