The director and her capable cast appear to be caught in a heady whirl of New Age-inspired good intentions, but the spell they cast isn't the least bit mesmerizing.

The whole thing comes off like a particularly amateurish episode of Bewitched that takes place during Spring Break.

Like a soft drink that's been sitting open too long: it's too much syrup and not enough fizz.

This story of unrequited love doesn't sustain interest beyond the first half-hour.

Nothing here amuses or delights or rings true.

From the choppy editing to the annoying score to 'special effects' by way of replacing objects in a character's hands below the camera line, "Besotted" is misbegotten
