Steve Carell is "at the top of his form" (Variety) as flamboyant magician Burt Wonderstone, whose ego is as big as the Las Vegas stage show he performs with partner Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi). When the magical friends split, a hotshot new breed of magician takes over the Vegas strip with his daredevil stunts. Can the deeply humbled Burt--resigned to a gig at a retirement home--ever make it back to the big time? Maybe...with the help of his childhood hero and his ex-partner!
