BEWITCHED (FEATURE): 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!

A very entertaining movie! Chemistry between Kidman and Ferrell is excellent, and Kidman very cute!

Great movie. Hilarious star cast. It was a must watch for me because of Ferrell and Schwartzman. But there are so many amazing actors in this. Really good script and director. I used to watch reruns when I was a kid. Anything magic. Very much recommended.

With the likes of that conniving. little minx, Nicole Kidman, and that big, slimy ferret, Will Ferrell, you'd honestly think that the chemistry between these 2 major misfits would spark some sort of movie-magic on screen. Wouldn't you? But, no, when it came to Kidman and Ferrell here in Bewitched, there couldn't have been any less mutual attraction happening between these 2 actors, had they actually been appearing in 2 separate movies.

Bewitched was, at best, an ill-conceived Rom-Com that clearly cried out, from beginning to end, for some real, honest-to-goodness magic to take place in it in order to make the storyline actually work the way that it should.

As the story goes - Jack (the self-loving jerk) is soon to be starring in the upcoming, updated version of the trite, 1960s, TV Sit-Com "Bewitched". One day Jack meets Isabel (who just so happens to be a real-life witch - a good one, of course). Jack quickly becomes sexually fixated on Isabel's cute, crinkly, little nose and decides right then and there that she's the one to play "Bewitched's" Samantha opposite his Darren.

Believe me, cheesy visual effects aside, this film's premise rang so utterly artificial throughout, that not even voodoo could've saved it from ending up in the "dollar bin" at a bloody Wal-Mart. No, it couldn't.

I would have given it a 5-star rating if a different leading man had been cast. Will Ferrall was terrible. Other wise it was great. Nicole was a perfect Samantha.

Relatively lame feelgood romantic comedy based on an old TV show. Ferrell has some funny lines, and it was sugary and sweet and cute and all that. I don't care for this kind of movie 9 times out of ten. I thought I might like it better because it had Will Ferrell in it. Nope. Not horrible, but just an average run of the mill RomCom.

I loved the television series, the movie not so much. If you didn't watch the series you will probably enjoy this movie a lot more than I did.

Uncle Arthur: Do you want the long version or the short version? And I have to warn you, the long version is in Aramaic.
