Charlotte Observer
Puts a fun, frothy spin on the 1960s TV show before sinking back into the mundane.

Newsweek
As long as it stays focused on showbiz, Bewitched is light, frothy fun. But Ephron insists on turning Bewitched into a love story, and that's when the fun starts to seep out of the movie.
50
The Hollywood Reporter
Despite the labors of leads Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell, there's no screen magic being made here.
50
The result is clever, and the narrative twistings keep you on your toes, but there's just one hitch: it ain't funny.
40
Variety
Nora Ephron's attempt to reconceive the standard TV-to-bigscreen adaptation goes bizarrely haywire here, spinning out of control like a runaway broomstick.
30
L.A. Weekly
The film's funny for 15 minutes as it skewers Hollywood and prowls block after block of familiar L.A. scenery.
25
ReelViews
The motion picture version of Bewitched is a travesty of monumental proportions that belongs in the "What the hell were they thinking?" category.
10
The A.V. Club
Bewitched piles miscalculation upon miscalculation, beginning by casting the iron-willed Kidman, one of film's gutsiest and most fearless actresses, as a regressive pre-feminist dumb-blonde doormat, a sort of mildly retarded amalgam of Marilyn Monroe, Renée Zellweger, and Meg Ryan.
0
Village Voice
To spend even 10 minutes in the movie's universe is to experience the Sartrean nausea of an utterly hollow head and heart.
0
Dallas Observer
This hackneyed, hapless and utterly useless redo of an overrated 1960s sitcom is excruciating to sit through for a dozen reasons.
