I rented and watched this movie on my Kindle Fire. I enjoyed the movie very much and as soon as I can afford it, I am going to purchase the DVD.

I think the reason that many people did not like this movie is the fact that it is in the catagory of "Farse" and a little slapstickish. Many do not like slapstick/farse or even "camp" style of movie.

In my opinion, Jim Carey did an excellent job with his character. "Man in the Moon" was always my favorite Jim Carey film. Now I must ad "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" to that small and hopefuly growing list.

My ONLY complaint about the movie was exposing the TT (Thumbtip, for the non-politicaly correct) and exposing the backpalm. I know that Penn & Teller did this years ago. I cringed then and I cringe now.

Why do we still say TT? I don't get it. The general public for the most part are not here on the Café but the general public do watch Penn & Teller and do go to the theatres to watch films like Burt Wonderstone. I don't get it Smile .

You said early on in this thread that you weren't going to go see the film and that you'd wait for its release on BluRay/DVD.

Are your later comments based on what some critics have said, or have you actually seen the film?


Audiences will affect your impression of a film. I saw ''The Muppet Movie'' on opening day at a ritzy theatre and was disappointed at how badly it dragged. A few years later, I saw the film at the Boston Worldcon and was amazed at how much better it seemed to be paced. The difference was that this audience was enjoying themselves. I just saw ''Burt Wonderstone'' on demand and enjoyed it a lot, not enough to pay the extra 11.99 to OWN a digital copy, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

I saw it last Friday at the Regal Meridian with my wife and about 20 other people in the audience. Apart from one guy in the back who laughed out loud several times. The rest of the audience were acting as if they were at a funeral. It's a truly bad film. I almost walked out. Something I haven't done at a film since mistakenly going to see Moulin Rouge a few years ago.

I messed up that post. Sorry. The part from "Audience will affect - to - but I enjoyed it nonetheless" was mine. Sorry for not placing it correctly.
