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 Ã¢â‚¬Å“DarrenÃ¢â‚¬Â in the remake of Bewitched. Jack wants to be the star of the show, so he wants to cast a no-name actress for Ã¢â‚¬Å“Samantha.Ã¢â‚¬Â Jack is egocentric and scene-stealing, but yet keeps a boyish charm that for some reason attracts Isabel. Isabel is a sweet, innocent, and naÃƒÂ¯ve at times. Even when she gets mad and tries to get even with Jack for what heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s doing, she feels guilty and regrets it.
The scenes that I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not going to win any awards. But if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re looking for a light-hearted, feel-good movie IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d recommend it.
