Bewitched, starring Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell, was a pretty fun movie. Nicole did, eerily, resemble the former Samantha (Elizabeth Montgomery) at times. Though the movie did take a different approach on Bewitched. Kidman plays Isabel, a witch who decides she wants to live the life of a mortal. Ferrell plays Jack, a down-and-out actor who gets a chance to play “Darren” in the remake of Bewitched. Jack wants to be the star of the show, so he wants to cast a no-name actress for “Samantha.” Jack is egocentric and scene-stealing, but yet keeps a boyish charm that for some reason attracts Isabel. Isabel is a sweet, innocent, and naïve at times. Even when she gets mad and tries to get even with Jack for what he’s doing, she feels guilty and regrets it.

The scenes that I didn’t care for were the TV shows of Bewitched they taped. They were extremely cheesy and campy. I was hoping they would modernize it.

Other than that, I thought the story was fun, and the roles were cast wonderfully. It’s not going to win any awards. But if you’re looking for a light-hearted, feel-good movie I’d recommend it.
