Whoa! This movie is not for children of any age.

The title character has sex with multitudes of women; one night stands seems to be his hobby. Contraception is supposed to make this irresponsible reproductive behavior all just fine. Drug use is prominently portrayed as a wonderful thing and the answer to all of life's problems. In fact, the 'happy ending' to this movie is a direct result of illegal drug use. There is the vulgar language common in adult movies, as well as terribly crude humor that seems to be Hollywood's only answer for comedy these days.

This movie is so repeatedly low-brow Hollywood that I felt like I had seen it all before. I would not even recommend it for adults.

The movie is funny, with some jokes that hit sensitive nerves

One guy says, "All steve does is get swollen and cut himself" the other says, "Yeah, even my niece can cut herself". Yes, they make a joke out of cutting. It turns out the number of people doing self injury keeps going up, and people say that could be due to violence, negative mental health education and intervention, and (of course) bullying. Steve (Jim Carey) does some really dangerous stunts, like putting a hole in his head with a drill, sleeping on hot rocks, ect. People start to think he does those dangerous things not for publicity, but for injury. He even does those stunts for little kids, and Jane (Olivia Wilde) warns him that the kids might try to imitate it, but he does it anyways. That is a hint that he has uncontrollable impulses to hurt himself. While Burt (Steve Carell) does more card tricks, rabbits, things like that. If you do take a kid to see this, make sure the kid knows about the concept of cutting and self-injury beforehand. Otherwise, the friendship conflict between Burt and Anton is hilarious.

Laugh, Laugh, and More Laughs

This movie was HILARIOUS! I probably have started off one of my other reviews like this but honestly I thought this movie was so funny. This has to be the best role Jim Carrey has played in a while. I don't want to spoil all the funny part. JUST SEE IT AND YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!

Overlooked drug message.

I think the ending is awful! They go from wanting to inspire with magic to drugging the entire audience every night. And it's not even mentioned in the Common sense review! - Fantasy drugs used on non-consenting victims by the protagonist - and the act being depicted as OK in a movie is a HORRIBLE message.

Burt Wonderstone - Incredible?

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a very funny movie. There are many jokes and funny scenes, although it veers off into dark comedy sometimes. Carrey's scenes of torturing himself are slightly disturbing, but reasonably brief and not always focused on. Some swearing but really quite mild in impact - not really something to worry about. The 'sex scenes' are also very brief not too detailed. there are some sex jokes and characters making out, but no scenes show the act itself. Overall the movie is very entertaining, with some positive messages and an interesting story - as long as you can handle some slips into a more mature realm.

B-

Just Fine. Very good. This is a movie I really wanted to see when it came out. Worry about sexual content but there are no sex scenes and some parents may need to worry about language.

Funny movie with some sex

This movie has a great cast which makes the movie funny. There is more sex than most PG 13 movies with two times where sex is implied. Burt is very immature an seems to think one night stands are ok but in the end he gets things straitened out and become a better person. Also Steve Grams tricks can gross some sensitive minds out. Overall this movie is funny and teens will like it but you should talk to them about Burt's immature lifestyle.

Expected more.

Not as good as I was hoping it to be, but it still had some funny moments. It had some language, but it was pretty standard PG-13 so language isn't really an issue. Some sexual content and jokes, but nothing other than kissing is shown. There is a drug that is used in the movie that knocks people out and this is used and mentioned within the movie. There are some unsettling scenes of violence mainly when Jim Carrey's character is shown. His charcter mocks modern day magicians that only hurt them self so he causes a lot of self harm, and most of the time it is unsettling for younger kids. 11 and up sounds right.
