Steve Carrell and Jim Carrey: THEIR COLLAPSE IS COMPLETE

"Incredible Burt Wonderstone" BOMBS. It will barely make $11 million this weekend.

And can Hollywood stop casting Olivia Wilde? She's box office poison.

It shocked me that they would release a film with such an unmarketable title.

Every time I see the commercial for this, I think: "Where have I seen this before?"

And...every time it comes to me, I saw it done much better and much funnier on "Arrested Development" with Gob and his magic tricks and with Buster as his beautiful assistant.

Hey, bitches, I'm still #1 at the box office.

At the bottom of my heart, I know you really, really do still love me.

It's mostly Carrell that I like seeing collapse. He became ridiculously rich for his mediocre, sitcom-level abilities. I haven't liked most of Carrey's movies but at least he did that gay movie, and called out Letterman on his show for acting like a snickering adolescent about it.

You could smell the stink off this just from the trailer.

I can't believe how anybody signed up for this movie thinking it would be a hit.

R1, I was going to say the same thing.

He has one of the great hairy chests and he had to shave it for this role. That's why the movie is a bomb.

OP, Was anyone who's seen this movie offended by the "gay jokes" that IMHO were in very poor taste and totally not funny?

R8 the gay jokes were the only funny part. Lighten up Peter Puffer.

I haven't seen it r8, but a quick googling seems to indicate it's another buddy movie with homophobic humor to establish the characters aren't gay. Something that is vitally important to the man-child demographic of these movies.

R8, I'm not "Peter Puffer," I'm a straight female and I honestly don't find crass gay jokes or minority jokes at all funny.

R9, Interesting deduction but still offensive.

Steve and Jim are hardly the butchest actors around so the homophobia makes perfect sense. But, like Liberace in the 50's, people still knew.

Wow, only 39% on Rotten Tomatoes

R12, It's Steve Buscemi's (sp) character that is the gay stereotype.

by Anonymousreply 1403/16/2013

That's funny. The New York Times and MSNBC both reviewed the film very favorably. I'll take their word over your sulfuric words any day, OP.
