Saw this one last weekend. It was half-funny.

The other half was full of jokes that weren't funny because they tried too hard. Or else they weren't jokes at all. And it should be noted that I am a sucker for long bursts of random cussing - if you don't laugh at swearing, then your funny/not funny ratio will decrease sharply.

I also didn't think that Rock Me Sexy Jesus was nearly as funny as the advertising was trying to claim it was, and I thought there was way too much Michael Scott in the drama teacher.

This all makes it sound like I thought it sucked, which is not fair. It wasn't the best movie I'd ever seen or anything, but I had an enjoyable time at the cinema. Mildly recommended, or something.

I tend to agree. It had a few laughs, mostly on the back of the great Steve Coogan, but it wasn't anything special.



“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

I think the OH SHIT GOTCHA SUCKER ending is overdone and usually really annoying. But Illusionist was about illusory trickery and deception and so the whole movie was illusory trickery and deception. Under those circumstances I think it's appropriate.
