ConsEverything!

When I was younger I used to love watching the TV show Bewitched, so when I heard they were making it into a movie I was really excited. Really excited that was, until I heard what the plot was - then I wasn't so excited. And then I read several reviews panning it, followed by an appearance by...

ProBriefly entertaining

ConsAnnoying performances, poor script and storyline

Jack Wyatt is an egotistical actor who wants to star in a film remake of Bewitched as Darrin, preferably without his co-star, the lovely Samantha, having much of a role at all. To this end, he insists on a co-star with the same kind of nose-wiggle as the original Samantha, but after hundreds of...

I never watched Bewitched when it was on the television so really this was the first time I come across it.

When I first found out they were making a film version of Bewitched I could not wait because I was a huge fan of the series. Finding out the starring cast of Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell I was thinking, wow Hollywood have got this right what a great cast and a great idea to do a film based on...

ProIt only lasted 1hr 38 mins

ConsI had to watch it

From 1964-1972, we saw the making of a family light hearted comical series known as Bewitched. This series cast a spell across the whole nation and beyond. My Family grew up with the hit comedy series and to this day still watch the re-runs on the sky network, so when I heard that a film had been...

Conswill ferrall

Let me start by saying I'm reviewing the UK DVD release of this film. I always thought this was a bad idea from the second I heard they were going to even attempt this. Will Ferrell in anything is hard to watch as he isn't remotely funny. Nicole Kidman is quite good in her role, innocent of human...

Consthe whole movie is a disappointment

As a fan of the old be-witched series. I am deeply disappointed with this movie. It has nothing to do with the original. Its actually weird that she wants to get cast on the Be-witched show and she was hired just because of the nose twitch. Also their acting skills were dreadful. This is a down...

Product Information : Bewitched (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Director Nora Ephron (SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE, YOU'VE GOT MAIL) breathes new life into the classic television show BEWITCHED in this romantic comedy of the same name. Movie star Jack Wyatt (Will Ferrell) had it all until he made a few bad films and his wife left him. Now, the washed up star is slated to play Darrin in a remake of the 1960s sitcom about a mortal man who unknowingly marries a beautiful, good-hearted witch. Determined to resuscitate his career, Jack and his agent, Richie (Jason Schwartzman), demand that an unknown be cast as the witch, Samantha, in order to maximise his screen time and star power. After an exhaustive search for the right actress and the perfect nose wiggle Jack spots Isabel Bigelow (Nicole Kidman) in a book store and is convinced that she can be the new Samantha. And right he is; Isabel really is a witch who is determined to try life and hopefully love without magic, much to the chagrin of her debonair warlock father, Nigel (Michael Caine). Immediately drawn to Jack, Isabel follows her heart and takes the role only to discover that he has no plan to share the spotlight with her, and can also be a big jerk. Can Isabel refrain from using magic to put Jack in his place and win his love? And how will Jack react when he learns Isabel's secret? More interesting than a standard remake, the screenplay by Ephron and her sister Delia nicely weaves in the characters and basic plot of the original television series while developing a completely new story and characters. Shirley MacLaine stars as a legendary actress who plays Samantha's mother, Endora, in the new television show and just may have a few secrets of her own. Steve Carell has an amusing turn as Uncle Arthur, a character originally played by comedian Paul Lynde.
