This is not a good film by any means though Kidman is gorgeous and Will Farrell seems to recreate a similar obnoxious character to Ron Burgandy. Shirley MacClain is wonderful as the actress playing Endora with a few secrets of her own as is Michael Cain as Kidman's father. The highlights of the movie are the unexpected visits of Aunt Clara (Kidman's aunt) and Uncle Arthur (we are not sure if what he is).     Generally, the movie starts off pretty inept with Kidman bored with …

Against anything I could have expected Bewitched was a wonderful, satisfying, make you feel good movie that just happened to be on TV on Monday night.

Pros: None     Cons: Lousy plot, horrible pacing, lame jokes.     The Bottom Line: A total mess, not worth a rental or your time.     Turning a classic Television series into a feature film can be a risky proposition. While the built in audience of Baby Boomers and new fans of a show gained through reruns make remakes a potentially lucrative venture, the hazards of recasting classic characters and modernizing the story to today’s audiences …
