Walking into the film, I wasn’t wild about the concept; I didn’t care about the plot; and I thought Nicole Kidman had a horrible nose wiggle. I left the film with quite another impression. Bewitched conjured up a 5 out of 5 from me. It’s possible that I liked this movie so much because I hated the first 5-10 minutes of it.
Once it started, I felt a ball drop in my stomach. It wasn’t funny, not very entertaining, and I disdained the characters. It started to look like a long hour or how ever much time the movie was going to take. Then, the movie started unfolding. I realized I was supposed to disdain the characters, and it became quite entertaining. What’s more, the annoying nose wiggle from the trailers wasn’t annoying, quite the opposite really. Actually, I rather enjoyed Nicole Kidman’s naivety.
The movie wasn’t hillarious, but it was funny. In fact, some of the funniest moments were from the TV show inside the movie. I absolutely loved it when Darryl’s arm became a giant lobster claw. Easily, it was my favorite moment of the movie. All in all, the movie was another good date movie, but it becomes a classic because it sets a clear precedent for old TV remakes.
