how do you please these people????
Last year people were saying they were tired of people making straight off remakes of there favourite TV shows, that they should come up with there own ideas, and this is what 'Bewitched' did, it wasn't your average remake, it actually had a story of its own, with new characters (and some old ones too) and provided the show to go onto new strengths and what did people do?
They moaned again.
The plot was stupid, why didn't they make a straight off remake? its ruined the legacy of bewitched, why didn't the comedy match? how do you please these people????
This story of Bewitched follows the life of Isabel Bigolo (Nicole Kidman) as she moves to L.A. to have a normal life, and to give up witchcraft, she runs into Jack Wyatt (Will Ferrel) a washed up film actor who is working on a TV remake of 'Bewitched' and wants to cast an unknown in the lead, to set him up, and to make sure the show only has one star, when Isabel finds out about his scheme, she swears revenge, But didn't count on romance....
I think it was hilarious, and touching romantic comedy I went and saw this with a group of my friends and to be completely honest most of them didn't think it was that good (apart from Tash thank you!) but in my opinion, it had everything a good movie needs.
Nicole Kidman was great as the innocent lead, she was just the right mix of kooky, touching, and truth to give the character life, and Will Ferrel as Jack Wyatt was perfect, you had the signature Ferrel humour, but you also get to see him in a slightly more sensitive role, something that we don't get in his uber-confident roles in Anchorman, and his crazy innocence in Elf, I saw that he could actually do some pretty good acting, instead of just being a guy who could make me split at the sides.
The supporting cast I also thought were brilliant, Micheal Caine, as Isabels father was just the right mix of oozing charm and was actually good as a supporting role, Shirley MacLaine was practically born to play Endora/Iris she gets the character right on the nail, and makes it believable at the same time, Kristen Chenoweth was hilarious as Maria, Isabel's neighbour, she had the right mix of dumb blonde and hilarious running in high heels to make her a delight to watch, and she stole every scene she was in. Jason Schwartzman(Ritche) Heather Burns (nina) also had good areas.
All in all, I thought this movie was much more than a remake, it had an solid plot, good characters (Main and supporting) good direction (how can you not like Norah Ephron?) and finally it still had some of the magic that the original bewitched gave us back in 1964
SO much more than a remake
Big Momma's House 2 (2006)
maybe I'm the lowest common denominator....
I went along with my friend to see this movie, and we found it hilarious! and so did most of the people in the cinema with us, (apart from the people in front of us, they didn't see the movie, they were sucking each others braces out)
The movie follows an FBI agent who becomes a nanny to the children of a wanted criminal, oh did we mention the nanny is a man dressed up as a woman?
In some areas of the movie i found the plot quite similar, i saw traces of 'Mrs Doubtfire'(obviously) and in one sequence (the club scene) i felt was very similar to 'Bringin down the house' but this did not compensate its entertainment value
This movie got quite a lot of bad reviews saying it-was childish rubbish and to low brow, but i and the really packed cinema, found it really funny, i dunno, maybe I'm the lowest common denominator....
but in the end, i would go see it, just for some easy laughs,
