The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

Synopsis: Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) have ruled the Las Vegas Strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt's growing ego. But lately the duo's greatest deception is their public friendship, while secretly they've grown to loathe each other. Facing cutthroat competition from guerrilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show is starting to look stale. But there's still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act - both onstage and off - if only Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.

a magical friendship

Night after night! after night!

Is like a magic hell.

Taking anymore time to switch out of there.

Stand out there and cloak like an asshole.

Give me a break Burt

I've been doing the switch the same way every night for the last 10 years.

You're just impatient.

I am impatient! Anton

because I have to share clothes with a sweaty walrus man.

You're just impatient becuase you want to get the show over with.

Can we get a towel for him please? Dab it down.

Well i sweat because i work hard.

Take my phone!

You think it's easy putting on your safety harness in the dark?

would you rather I let the noose just snap your neck off.

Ok, can we do this one show without this bitchfest.

Oh I'm sorry, are we hurtting your performance as a walking manikin?

That's it you know what?

You know the tricks?

Yes why do you need something?

From now on you're NIcole.

Oh, wow Mr. Wonderstrone that is a tremendous honor.

but I really don't think I'm ready to take on that

If I'm not really rehersed I wouldn't be several years.

That is not an outfit!

You're gonna be great.

Don't worry.

I have a fear.

That is tight!

You took her hair?

You know folks? When you grow up as a magician.

The 1st escape you learn is generally from a school locker.

The jocks hated us

because we always stole their girlfriends away from them

using the power of magic

I like the blonde.

Makes you look cute.


So i finally got this new bed that I ordered.
