It's a little weird that a movie about the dangers of doing something so long that it becomes rote and stale is, at times, incredibly rote and stale. Write what you know, I guess; 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' has a couple big laughs, a few small laughs, and a whole lot of going through the Hollywood mainstream comedy motions. As a movie, it's a mess; in select moments, it's occasionally hilarious. It's probably best appreciated as a playlist of highlight clips on YouTube.
Previous trailers for 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' have been fairly traditional, laying out the story of two struggling magicians past their prime (Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi) who compete against a hip Criss Angel type played by Jim Carrey. But this new promo video chooses to go meta, styling itself like a hokey commercial for an actual Las Vegas magic act instead of a movie trailer.
Earlier today, we were treated to the news that one-time '30 Rock' guest star Salma Hayek would reprise her role as Elisa for the January 31 series finale, but the final episode might not have anything on the star-studded size of this Thursday's "Game Over." Not only will esteemed '30 Rock' guest stars Will Arnett, Steve Buscemi, Chloe Moretz and Megan Mullally reprise their respective roles, but joining them will be 'The Help's Octavia Spencer! Get a sneak peek at the big '30 Rock' returns tomorrow night inside!
