Missing any kind of magic at all, Bewitched should be burned at the stake.

It's one of those movies where you smile and laugh and are reasonably entertained, but you get no sense of a mighty enterprise sweeping you along with its comedic force. There is not a movie here. Just scenes in search of one.

If you manage to redirect your attention away from her twitching nose, you'll notice a quiet desperation in her tired eyes, which, just like you, wish the whole movie away.

The "love story" is so anemic and cloying that you just want to wave a wand and make it disappear.

Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman try to turn an old TV show into a magical Hollywood satire, but their trick's not much of a treat.

In the original TV series, Elizabeth Montgomery had this kind of sexy, subversive personality. Here we just have this na´ve person who just flits about.

The folks behind Bewitched had an idea -- rejigger the '60s TV series about a witch who marries an average guy -- but they couldn't decide what kind of movie to make, so they came up with three scenarios and Superglued them together.

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

Outside of the perfomers, which include Nicole Kidman, Will Ferrell and a nicely tuned supporting cast, there isn't much to look at here.

Bewitched is a poorly executed mess that no wiggle of the nose can save.

Watching Nicole Kidman fly around on a broom is one thing, but if you're looking for a little renewed magic, Bewitched unfortunately isn't it.

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

Bewitched will not cast you under its spell. It is more likely to bother and bewilder.

It's so lightweight that the wind from a passing broomstick would collapse its foundations.

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

Going into "Bewitched," you at least expect a reasonably entertaining twist on the popular '60s television show. What you get instead is George Romero's "Land of the Dead."
