A minor comeback for Nora Ephron...Ferrell and Kidman make the most of the formulaic plot...

The set-up for the story requires the audience be aware they are actually watching a remake of Bewitched at all times. It gets points for being an interesting and different idea for a television remake, but the metatextuality can be off-putting.

With "Bewitched," Nicole Kidman's career slips down yet another rung after her recent cinematic mishaps with "The Stepford Wives" and "Birth."

There may be special effects aplenty here, but precious little magic.

By the tepid ending, the movie appears to have been sedated.

The Ephrons have an easy way with the romantic-comedy genre.

Has some hilarious moments, mostly thanks to Will Ferrell's zany slapstick, mugging, and other antics.

As good as some of the gags are, however, they might have fallen flat if performed by lesser talents.

Had it stuck to the ground rules it laid out early on, it would've made sense.

Despite the intriguing set-up, formula proves as hard a habit for Ephron to kick as magic is for Isabel.

What the hell is Will Ferrell doing to his career?

Es una lástima que las hermanas Ephron no hayan podido aterrizar una idea que sonaba interesante en un principio pero que, finalmente, es víctima de sus propios malos hechizos

I'll have some of what Nora Ephron's having, as long as I don't have to watch her movies.

Blame Will Farrell and the director who let him run amok for the failure of this film.

If it lost every bad idea, miscast actor, wasted performance, and botched scene, nothing would be left but the end credits.
