New "Bewitched" movie

I'd planned to go see "War of the Worlds" today, but by the time we got to the theatre we had a choice between going in late or waiting an hour and a half for the next showing. So we looked at what else was playing, and since "Sharkboy and Lavagirl" was also at an inconvenient time, we decided to hit "Bewitched".

I was actually pleasantly surprised by this movie, because I usually find Will Ferrell totally annoying and generally not funny after about five minutes. But in this movie, he wasn't supposed to be funny. He was supposed to be annoying. And guess what? He was! So they chose absolutely the right person for the role. He was, at a later point, expected to be funny... for about five minutes! And, again, he was.

Nicole Kidman's always a great actress, but I'm always confused by her because I can't quite identify when I stopped wanting to have hot monkey sex with her. I used to think she was totally hot, and one of the most beautiful women in the world. Now she's just... eh. I know it happened somewhere before "Eyes Wide Shut", because that was the first one where I thought "hey, wait a minute, didn't she used to give me a major woody?" and started worrying about my plumbing. (There was nothing to worry about. Everything works, it's just a little more fussy about with whom it works.)

So good job casting this one. Great writing and direction from Nora Ephron, which is the name that convinced me this movie actually might not be a total steaming pile. And definitely a movie worth seeing... although they sort of drop a part of the storyline during the film, and Steve Carell's entire role in this movie is a big WTF moment that never quite gets resolved. So two pretty big cans of worms get opened up during the movie, and nobody ever even tries to clean them up. If you're willing to let those minor messes slide, it's a good movie. Great date movie... but maybe not so much if your date is too young to have seen the show, though.
