The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a Bruce Almighty reunion of sorts, with Carrey and Steve Carell in a battle of magicians. Yes, the story of the has-been professional dealing with a more obnoxious, hipper up-and-comer is a tale told (too?) many a time, and David Tennant already tried to take flight as a very similar Angel in the Fright Night remake. But Carell and Steve Buscemi as a Siegfried-and-Roy style duo sell me by themselves; add to that the fact that Carrey playing an obnoxious caricature is precisely what I want to see from him.
Director Don Scardino appears to have worked mostly in TV, but with his two most recent credits being 30 Rock and 2 Broke Girls, that might not be too terrible. I Love You Phillip Morris was a fun return to Carrey’s crassly comedic form – a form I hope still fits.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
