The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

Abracadaverage!


Comedy

Rod Lott
There’s nothing wrong per se with The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. It just desperately lacks the edge you know it had to have at some early stage, but lost somewhere in all the tinkering to tailor it to a widest-possible audience. Enough hints of it remain to make the movie worth a watch — perfectly agreeable, if perfectly forgettable.

Third Person

A star-studded cast isn't enough to salvage Paul Haggis' heavy-handed drama.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
In 2006, writer-director Paul Haggis surprised and befuddled a lot of Academy Awards prognosticators when he won the Best Picture Oscar for his multistory drama, Crash. He returns to that formula in Third Person, albeit with a pronounced heavy-handedness (and Crash wasn’t exactly subtle) that might leave one pining for something comparatively a bit lighter, such as a colorectal exam.
