    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

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

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    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. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    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. show more

    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. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    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. show more

    Peter Debruge Premiere

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

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    Puts a fun, frothy spin on the 1960s TV show before sinking back into the mundane. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    An uninspired misfire of a TV-series knockoff that, despite its great cast and smart filmmakers, never manages to scare up much magic. show more
