Editorial Reviews

Oscar(r)-winner Nicole Kidman (Best Actress in a leading role, The Hours, 2002) and wickedly funny Will Ferrell star as actors playing Darrin and Samantha on a remake of the television show "Bewitched"in this cleverly crafty comedy from director Nora Ephron (Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail). Egomaniacal star Jack Wyatt (Ferrell) casts unknown Isabel (Kidman) as his co-star in order to monopolize the limelight and regain his top spot on Hollywood's A-list. When Isabel, a real witch, discovers Jack's self-centered scheme, she conjures a sidesplitting spell the mere mortal will never forget!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and funny September 11, 2005
Format:DVD
In a seemingly endless sea of remakes which quickly (and rightfully) sink into oblivion, Bewitched deserves credit for at least putting a new spin on the formula. I can't imagine anyone but Nicole Kidman in the role of Isabel...she simply glows, you can't take your eyes off her. Will Ferrell delivers his usual goofy, over-the-top performance, which suits his character just fine. And at the heart of it all is a sweet and (mostly) old-fashioned love story. It also pays due reverence to its source, as Isabel keeps a picture of Elizabeth Montgomery in her dressing room, and wonders what the "real" Samantha would do. Sure, it's not perfect. In fact (minor spoiler alert!), I knocked off a whole star for the whole "Uncle Arthur" nonesense in the final act. But I laughed. A lot, in fact. I was delighted with Kidman's performance. And I left the film feeling pretty darn good. What more could you want?

For once, don't believe what the majority of critics have said. Bewitched is a great romantic comedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bewitching August 19, 2005
Format:DVD
Forgive me while I step into Robert Eberts shoes for a quick second, and say that Bewitched is probally the most Romantic Comedy I have seen for quite some time. But again, since Will Ferrell is in it, I might be slightly prejudiced on that account.Bewitched is simply lovely, sweet, sincere and romantic the movie centers around a love stricken witch Isabel (Nicole Kidman) who has fallen head over heels for Hollywood's biggest failure in movie making Will, "He's such a adorable mess," Isabel breathes.

Nicole Kidman plays Isabel, a witch who wants to be normal and live like the mortals. Its a hard transition, made harder by not being sutable to work at anything since she always had magic at her command. Enter Will Ferrell, a terrible actor who's just coming off a major flop film. He is handed the idea to play Darrin in the remake of Bewitched, which he uncertainly takes. The only problem arises is that no suitable Samantha can be found to wiggle her nose properly. That is until Ferrell finds Isabel that one fateful day in the bookstore, where she is wiggling her nose like the best of them.

Enchanted, he begs Isabel to sign on to the show, using words like "I need you" to convince her. Having never been trained in the ways of the world, Isabel is overcome and agrees believing he is professing his love to her.

But love doesn't come easily, for Ferrell is eager to get back in the publics good graces, and is consiquently blind to the lack of quality his character portrays in the overeagerness to believe himself one of the greats.

Nicole is consiquently given parts only where she stands around, and never any dialouge in the attempt to make Ferrell seem bigger and better. That is until she finds out.... and hell hath no fury like a witch unleased.

I shan't say more, but if you are a Ferrell fan, don't miss this movie, need I say more on that score?

Nothing irks me more than a blown opportunity for rejuvenating a fondly remembered sitcom that evokes instant nostalgia among baby-boomers but somehow misses the point of why the original show was so beloved. It appears director and co-writer Nora Ephron, along with her co-writer and sister Delia, got caught up in their own cleverness. They start with an only-in-Hollywood conceit, focusing the story on the effort to remake the "Bewitched" sitcom rather than trying to update the odd goings-on at the Stephens household for the new millennium. I applaud the originality of the concept, but the execution falls so flat that I was sighing at what should have been. There is some mild amusement with the show business sequences, such as the poolside negotiation, the auditions, the cartoon opening refocused completely on Darrin, and Samantha's on-set witchcraft. However, the love story, in particular, in the last half-hour, nosedives into predictability compounded by the lack of chemistry between the leads.

An otherwise stellar cast has been set adrift. As Isabel Bigelow, a real witch tapped to play Samantha, Nicole Kidman is inarguably beautiful but oddly disjointed doing a breathy Meg Ryan impersonation. Kidman is an actress who depends on her fierce intelligence to maximize her effectiveness in roles, but she seems so preoccupied with being child-like and vulnerable that she often comes across as a graduate of a special education program. What she most lacks is the sense of bemused irony and saucy knowingness that Elizabeth Montgomery naturally brought to the role, but frankly that would have been an impossible task anyway. Will Ferrell steals the picture as fading star Jack Wyatt, but it's a petty crime at best.

Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman star in the new romantic comedy "Bewitched" based on the legendary show from the 60's!!! "Bewitched" is magic in my opinion, .... no not perfect but, I must say Ferrell and Kidman pack quite a punch, and are a perfect combo. You will either be rolling in laughter with Ferrell's antics or being aroused by Kidman's beauty and charm, casting her magic spell!!!

Before, I watched the movie I had my doubts,.... since it's been a year of remakes and sequels: like "Herbie: Fully Loaded" and "The Longest Yard", thus questioning the movie's potential. I must admit when I saw the movie I wasn't overly impressed, but the concept alone was very creative; along with the Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman really add something magical to the film. "Bewitched" is a very clever and crafty single in the image of Nora Ephron ("Sleepless in Seattle" /as well as/ " You've Got Mail").

The story is something like this: Isabel (Kidman) is a witch who can get anything by the snap of her fingers or the twitch of her nose, that strives to be normal. Isabel is looking for something in her life; something like love. Meanwhile you also have Jack Wyatt( Ferrell) a washed up actor in Hollywood trying to make a big comeback or monopolize on a remake of the show "Bewitched"( very interesting) , for his own selfish reasons. So he is looks for an unknown to play as Samantha, since he is playing as Darwin, who can get the part just write. One day just by magic he finds her, and convinces her to be part of the new "Bewitched" (not knowing she is a witch ) casting her. Isabel mistook by Jack's self centered scheme, feels that he may be the answer to all of her problems.

With many unexpected twists and turns, between Isabel's sidesplitting magic and Jack's ,....

It's not a bad movie, but neither did I love it. i think there were many overly silly scenes. It was still okay to watch, just nothing super special about the movie nor actors.

A nice idea. It's not a remake of the original show. It's a movie about re-doing Bewitched as a TV series but the star just happens to be a witch. Read more
