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

Joan Plowright was originally cast as Aunt Clara, but had to pull out. By Kristin Chenoweth's recommendation, the role was given to Carole Shelley; the two had costarred in the Broadway production of "Wicked". Shelley took a week off appearing in the show to film her scenes. See more »
(at around 45 mins) In the scene when Isabel and her father Nigel are sitting down at the table at the coffee bean, the camera is reflected on the toaster from behind the booth. See more »

This was the WORST movie I have seen since in a long time. It left me speechless. Where do I start? I tell you, at the start. Why would she need to rent a house from an agent if she found one she liked? Who lived there, did she zap them away? What was with the ridiculous signs?
That set the pace for this unfunny movie. What a waste talent all over the place and what was with Kidman's handi-pandi voice? Did the director ask for that? I guess Kidman needs to make some money after making films like Dogville and Birth. Both excellent films, but I hear the pays not so good.
Of course the true culprit is Will Ferrell. When will we learn this guy is not an Actor? We are supposed to believe he is a Hollywood Action Actor that had a few bad films? Give me a break! But is his defense, I don't think any actor could of fixed this script. P-U!
If you enjoyed this film, may I suggest "Cut-throat Island"!
