San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
It's funny, easily the funniest and least self-conscious movie that director Nora Ephron has made.

Premiere

By Peter Debruge
As endearing as Ferrell and Kidman are on their own, there's just no chemistry between them onscreen.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
It's one of those movies where you smile and laugh and are reasonably entertained, but you get no sense of a mighty enterprise sweeping you along with its comedic force. There is not a movie here. Just scenes in search of one.

Despite the labors of leads Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell, there's no screen magic being made here.

Philadelphia Inquirer

One thing Kidman is not is a clown. She thinks fizzy and dizzy and klutzy are funny. She is mistaken. To be a clown requires a kind of witchcraft.

The Ephron sisters, sophisticates entrusted with a simple TV situation comedy, lose the magic of the com as they mess with the sit.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
Bewitched does have a few laughs, thanks to Ferrell's antics. And some of the wittiest contemporary comedians are on board, notably "The Office's" Steve Carell and "The Daily Show's" Stephen Colbert, but they are underused.

The result, at best, is a sweet failure.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
Bewitched presents a phony and cynical look at how Hollywood might make or remake a television show. It's as grating, laughless, and narcissistic (though, to its credit, not as cruel) as that new Lisa Kudrow show-within-a-show-within-a-show, "The Comeback."

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Why is the movie such a mess? Will Ferrell plays a washed-up actor who's supposed to be a hopeless mess, but even his character makes little sense. Is it all supposed to be postmodern? No, it's post-postmortem, the dead spirit of a dearly departed show.
