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.

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.

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.

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

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

Bewitched has more giggles than belly laughs, but it's not the same-old same old, and the massive appeal of Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman is undeniable.

If a studio absolutely cannot avoid raiding its vaults for a popular TV show to pillage for an extra $1.98 decades later, this is the way to do it.

Kidman doesn't compete with Montgomery's memory because she doesn't need to. She has crafted her own memorably witchy woman.

Screenwriters Ephron and her sister Delia are able to get laughs and make character points even in the moments of laying out a fairly involved exposition, and that's no small thing. That's skilled craftsmanship.

The fluffiest surprise of the summer. When it comes to the race for giggles, it's Nicole by a nose.

It is courageously weird -- and that alone casts a spell.

Ephron casts a spell full of romantic-comedy charm even as it goes about the post-modern business of toying with our fondness for pop-cultural baubles like Bewitched. Consider the sparkling mood Ephron maintains as irreverent reverence.
| Original Score: 3/4

there's enough originality and solid laughs here to call this a charmed effort.
