Bewitched: Directed by Nora Ephron. With Nicole Kidman, Will Ferrell, Shirley MacLaine, Michael Caine. Thinking he can overshadow an unknown actress in the part, an egocentric actor unknowingly gets a witch cast in an upcoming television remake of the classic sitcom Bewitched (1964).
A movie about a universe in which “Bewitched” is being remade, and actual witch gets roped into starring as the lead role in the remake of the classic television show.
It’s meta within meta! I was sent a MoviesAnywhere code of this for free from the studio with a note apologizing about something that went wrong that I honestly have no memory of, I’m happy to have had the opportunity to revisit the film though, as I remembered seeing it back when it was released in 2005 in the olden days when I wasn’t logging every minute of screen time I was consuming, and true to my memory, this is still an enjoyable film with a fun premise and fun story. It doesn’t hurt that Kidman and Ferrell were at the absolute best for the movie, but at the same time they didn’t take it too crazy serious.
