DVD review: The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

Vegas showmen Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell, shiny teeth, stonking toupée) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi, wonky teeth, wondrous manner) have been pulling the same act for decades – only to split up when challenged by maverick street-magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey in manic mode).

Enter Alan Arkin as an old-time illusionist to help Carell rediscover his passion for close-up trickery. A tad overlong, but it's entertaining and the leads are good value.
