Nicole Kidman & Will Ferrell as a Screen Couple? As one critic said: "These two in love? It makes a smuch sense...as mustard on a donut!" Feel free to DISCUSS their chemistry, the movie...WHAT-ever!

I haven't seen it, and don't plan to, but I have read many of the reviews for it, and it sounds absolutely insufferable. I think Will Ferrell is over-exposed (pun intended; he usually ends up shirtless or worse in everything, including BEWITCHED), and is really just a one-note actor with no range. Trying to make him into a romantic lead is rather ridiculous. He had a few moments on Saturday Night Live where he was funny, but most of the time he was just boorish. I'm staying away from this movie. I'm sure it will make the "worst" cut come Razzie time. Columbia is sure trying, though. They're still peddling this mess as if it were a good movie, with promotional tie-ins...

A clerk at my local Post Office asked if I'd seen this, then added:

"Can you please nominate Shirley MacLaine for Worst Supporting Actress??"

Why would Oscar winners like Nicole Kidman, Shirley Maclaine and Michael Caine agree to be in something this STUPID -- the gazillionth lame-o movie made from a lame-o 60s TV show no one under 40 even remembers... I don't get why they can't make GOOD movies, Fer Kripin' Out Loud!!!!

BEWITCHED, the TV series, was/is a delight. It was not "lame-o" as #1-Movie-Fan! said. It is an unfortunate fact that beloved TV shows like BEWITCHED are turned into atrocious movies. It is an epidemic.

Still no answer...ANYONE?

Why are Kidman, MacLame and Caine in this tripe?????????????? (And why is Shirley's role cut down to almost a cameo -- Was she THAT awful???)...

I'd bet MONEY that Ol' Shirely TESTED very poorly in advance screenings, and so ended up mostly on the proverbial cutting-room-floor. For a former Oscar winner, that's QUITE a come-down!

Oscars, shmoscars -- Those Little Gold Naked Mean don't mean sh*t! It's just a bunch of Hollywood insiders slapping each other on the back and trading air-kisses (and ass-kisses!).

Gimme the Razzies -- which KICK ASS -- Any day over The Dumb Old Candy-Ass Academy Awards!!!

BEWITCHED was listed earlier this week in an L.A. TIMES article about 2005's lagging box office. Giving its budget as $85 millionTHE TIMES sez its Domestic B.O. to date is a mere $62 million -- OOPS!!! And it's not like it's likely to "make it up in foreign gosses!" BEWITCHED was then listed along with THE ISLAND, STEALTH, CINDERELLA MAN and KINGDOM OF HEAVEN  as The Summer's Big "Box Office Disappointments."

Nicole ruined the movie, she cannot even move her nose properly and fast.
There is only botox left.

This movie got horrible reviews, but I actually got to sit down and watch this movie. I thought it was alright. Not Good, but alright. Ferrel and Kidman were good in this movie. Seems kind of boring at times, but it's alright...

Hi (new here).
I haven't seen Catwoman, but I saw Bewitched. I think it appeals to some audiences, but not to me. Will Ferrel was pretty bad imo, Kidman was ok, not super good, but sure acceptable.

Well, I've never seen CATWOMAN or BEWITCHED, but I know both of those films were really bad. Yep, both got horrible reviews from critics. Kidman, the ex-Cruise, may end up getting a Razzie nomination for this film. We all know Tom has been a Razzie nominee and winner through 26 years.

I tried to watch it with my kids. It took about 15 minutes for me to run sreaming from the room to puke. Less funny than "Anchorman" if that's possible. Every time I see Will Ferrell he is less funny.
