Bewitched

Nora Ephron (who wrote Sleepless in Seattle and You’ve got Mail) decided to inflict severe pain on movie-viewers with this embarrassing nostalgic indulgence. Poor Nicole Kidman—to have done a movie as challenging as Dogville and end up here! 

She plays Isabel Bigelow (if only she were related to Deuce!), a “real” witch who wants to be normal. She moves to an LA house and starts up her ‘life as a mortal’. But an egocentric Hollywood actor who can’t cut it on the big screen and is moving the small one (Jack Wyatt played by Will Ferrell) casts her as an unknown for the relatively minor role of Samantha in the remake of the Elizabeth Montgomery classic. 

It is all just drivel. Beside the one scene where Ferrell has a spell put on him and he goes through the entire gamut of acting styles to humorous effect, the whole movie is a yawn-fest. It reminded me of the days I owned a breadmaker and the unfortunate loaves that never quite rose and had to be disposed of. 

Not even Shirley MacLaine or Michael Caine (as the “real” witch playing the re-make Endora and Bigelow’s father respectively) can charm this disaster back to life. Some movies are mortal, all too mortal. 

The special features include commentary by Ms Ephron (which might potentially be more interesting than the feature), a trivia track, deleted scenes, featurettes, a trivia game and some trailers. 

All in all, a waste of time and a waste of money: deciding which one of the two wins out would depend on what you have more of.
