Storyline

Out in California's San Fernando Valley, Isabel is trying to reinvent herself. A naïve, good-natured witch, she is determined to disavow her supernatural powers and lead a normal life. At the same time, across town, Jack Wyatt a tall, charming actor is trying to get his career back on track. He sets his sights on an updated version of the beloved 1960s situation comedy Bewitched, re-conceived as a starring vehicle for himself in the role of the mere-mortal Darrin. Fate steps in when Jack accidentally runs into Isabel. He is immediately attracted to her and her nose, which bears an uncanny resemblance to the nose of Elizabeth Montgomery, who played Samantha in the original TV version of Bewitched. He becomes convinced she could play the witch Samantha in his new series. Isabel is also taken with Jack, seeing him as the quintessential mortal man with whom she can settle down and lead the normal life she so desires. It turns out they're both right--but in ways neither of them ever ... Written by Sujit R. Varma

Trivia

Some deleted and alternate footage appears in the movie's trailer:
  • In Bed Bath & Beyond there's an exchange between Nigel and Isabel in which he says, "But you're a witch." To which she replies, "I know, but I'm not gonna be one anymore."


  • Footage of Jack in an arctic movie is displayed full screen not within a TV set like in the film.


  • Footage of the new animated "Bewitched" opening credits are shown on a TV set, not full screen like in the film.


  • The dialog between Jack and Isabel outside of the café is different.


Jack: "Just come and show everybody what you look like when you..." Isabel: "What?" Jack: "...wiggle your nose." In the film Jack says "Just come and show everybody what you look like when you do it" without an interruption by Isabel.
  • There's some extra shots during the Bed Bath & Beyond checkout scene: Isabel's hand in her shopping cart, then a close-up of the credit card swiping machine while the cashier pushes a button on the cash register in the background to bring up the total displayed on the machine.

Awful!
25 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sitting through this flick was like watching a car crash in slow motion. Though there are funny bits, the supporting cast is unused despite the star power and potential. Jason Schwartzman, Kristin Chenowith, Steve Carrell, etc. all are wasted, by the second half of the movie, all seem to have faded into the background. Nicole Kidman and Will Farrell have zero chemistry and what is there seems forced. The writing gets progressively worse and there seems to be a lot of repetition. Save your money and wait for this one in the DVD bargain bin. The idea behind this re-imagination of the Bewitched series is something different, however this one doesn't make it off the ground.
