Editorial Reviews

Oscar®-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?

2.0 out of 5 stars Just a terrible mess of a film February 19, 2006
Format:DVD
There are so many things wrong with this film, it is hard to know where to begin. First, it is a film adaptation of a hit television series, a genre of film that is consistently among the worst that exist. Second, it is a poorly conceived adaptation. Instead of making it a straightforward adaptation, the pretext of the film is that a real witch who is trying to give up her powers to settle down and marry a normal human being is miraculously cast in part of Samantha in a revival of the series BEWITCHED. This is all fairly clever and I thoroughly approve doing a variant on show rather than a straight remake. It worked for the quite funny films based on THE BRADY BUNCH (one of the few times where a movie was better than the TV show upon which it was based, though fans of the show might disagree with me), but unfortunately almost nothing else is clever. I say "almost" because I did enjoy many moments when Isabel (Nicole Kidman). The problem is that in the reconception, the pretense is that the actor who plays Darrin, Jack Wyatt (Will Farrell), is the lead in the show and not Samantha. This is bad enough, but it is made worse by the wretched presence of Will Farrell in the role of Jack. OK, I have to admit to being completely and utterly blind to the charms, real or otherwise, of Will Farrell. I can honestly say that this is an actor who has never made me smile, let alone laugh. But my gut feeling is that he is so inappropriate for this role that even a fan of his would be disappointed. But the conceit that you could have BEWITCHED and try to shrink her part to that of a necessary but minor character is so silly that it doesn't even bear trying to make sense of.

One of the most painful aspects of watching the film is seeing a lot of real talent wasted.

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 ,....

3.0 out of 5 stars three stars for Nicole Kidman
Will Farrell is absolutely dread full. If it was not for Kidman, a rating of 1 star would be too kind. I was pleasantly surprised how good Nicole kidman was in a comic role. Read more
