Watch: Bewitched 2005 123movies, Full Movie Online – Out in California’s San Fernando Valley, Isabel is trying to reinvent herself. A naïve, good-natured witch, she is determined to disavow her supernatural powers and lead a normal life. At the same time, across town, Jack Wyatt, a tall, charming actor is trying to get his career back on track. He sets his sights on an updated version of the beloved situation comedy Bewitched (1964), re-conceived as a starring vehicle for him in the role of the mere-mortal Darrin. Fate steps in when Jack accidentally runs into Isabel. He is immediately attracted to her and her nose, which bears an uncanny resemblance to the nose of Elizabeth Montgomery, who played Samantha on Bewitched (1964). He becomes convinced she could play Samantha in his new series. Isabel is also taken with Jack, seeing him as the quintessential mortal man with whom she can settle down and lead the normal life she so desires. It turns out they’re both right, but in ways neither of them ever imagined..
Plot: Thinking he can overshadow an unknown actress in the part, an egocentric actor unknowingly gets a witch cast in an upcoming television remake of the classic show “Bewitched”.

Cute, but not amazing
I had a chance to see this movie at an advanced screening.
I’m sorry to say that there were people who walked out. Admittedly, the first half is kind of dull. The cute and funny parts are few and far between.
The plot is dragged down horribly by some really bad secondary characters. Uncle Arthur, Iris/Endora and Isabelle’s father are all reaaaally dull and contrived. The movie comes to a grinding halt when they appear.
The script writing is quite clever, and Nicole Kidman (happy birthday today!) is great, as always. Will Ferrell just plain cracks me up. I would have liked to see the plot give him more goofy parts, because that’s when he really shines.
All in all, not really a surprising movie. Wait and rent it!
A magically unfunny mess!
The movie Bewitched takes its audience to a magical world where logic doesn’t exist, and characters can mysteriously change levels of intelligence depending on what the story needs. Seriously, who thought it was a good idea to do an adaptation of the classic TV show Bewitched where they’re remaking the Bewitched, but characters from the fake TV show also seem to exist in real life? It just doesn’t make sense. I’m embarrassed for everyone who was involved with this mess.
