Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman do an excellent job in their roles. Ferrell portrays a very self centered actor, Jack Wyatt, whose primary thoughts and actions are about him. Kidman plays Isabel Bigelow, a witch who is trying to be “normal” by putting her supernatural abilities on hold. She wants a man to take care of, and she desires someone who needs her. Wyatt wants her for selfish reasons and that is when the interaction between them gets interesting.
There is a lot of witchcraft and spell casting in the film just like there was in the television show. It was fun to see two wonderful actors together again—Shirley MacLaine and Michael Caine. They have starred together in two films that I know of: “Gambit,” a 1966 comedy, and “Woman Times Seven,” a 1967 comedy. I don’t think they have acted together since then so it was great to see them together in “Bewitched.”
