Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —
The three strongest performances come from Arkin, Carrey and Carrel as well as their relationships between each other and would be quite a trio to include if they could be combined for future projects (though Carrel and Carrey were already awesome before in Bruce Almighty). It was one of Carrey’s best whacky roles in quite some time and a shame more could not have been done to expand it.
As a result it’s a relatively tame affair for most ages, with the most severe adult content more on a suggestive than visual level. It’s not necessarily a must own, but I wouldn’t turn down an opportunity to share it with friends later. Thus I bestow upon “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” three out of five illusions.
