It's a nice ride ... There's nothing subversive or edgy about it ... But it's an agreeable piece of Hollywood product.

Bewitched doesn't cast a spell over audiences but stars Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell have enough magic between them to create something simple and fun.

Ephron takes a perfectly workable, big-screen ready concept and renders it needlessly complicated and barely recognizable.

starts promisingly, with an ingenious premise, an engaging cast and a bouncy tone ... then turns into an especially slushy Ephron rom-com

Lacks cohesion and chemistry, essential ingredients to the original's success.

The trailer gave away what this movie needed to give us lots of: surprises. Sweet, funny, amusing, but never gels.

The best way to describe this attempted "revival" of the popular TV series? How about bland, boring and bothersome?

...it is the ineffective writing that wrings all the magic out of a concept that should have produced at least a mildly pleasing summer comedy.

Bewitched becomes a love story about the unknowingly self-consumed - Idiots in Love. Even the sappiest viewers will have a hard time rooting for them.

I blame wine-goggles for this mess. And the director is one of our greatest. What was she thinking?

Ferrell, in need of a shorter leash, never makes the character any more than a caricature, and Kidman, in a rare comedic role, suffers, too.

Kidman is absolutely divine. Ferrell is his usual pleasantly goofy self. A Funky Contrast.

Le film ne génère absolument rien chez le spectateur, même pas l'amusement le plus primaire.

Despite the modernist incantation, the Ephrons' boob-tube spoof feels like they've channeled a dusty rerun.

As a light-hearted, silly movie that didn't try to be anything else, it was funny enough.
