Some people didn’t like Nora Ephron’s Bewitched.  I am not some people.  I happen to love it.  Granted, the story is a little out there—okay a lot out there, but it works for me.  I’m going to say mostly because of the actors, particularly Will Ferrell (hilarious, there’s nothing else I can say), Nicole Kidman (having more fun than I have ever seen…her…have), Michael Caine (who doesn’t love him?), and Shirley McLaine (she was born to play a crazy witch).

Here’s a quick plot run-down: Nicole Kidman is a bona fide witch and she’s decided she wants to just be a normal girl, much to the chagrin of her warlock father, Michael Caine.  She moves to LA, where she bumps into a washed up movie star, Will Ferrell, who’s looking for a Samantha to his Darrin for a rebooted Bewitched TV show.  Because he is such a hot mess, she falls for him and agrees to do the show.  He proves to be a jerky prima donna, which makes Nicole mad.  There’s a bit of spell casting, a little falling in love, and a whole lot of laughs.

This is one of the most oft quoted movies in our house.  Watching the movie, you have to wonder how much of it was ad-libbed by Will Ferrell.  As a warning, Will Ferrell is very comfortable with his body, and he doesn’t mind showing it off.

Steve Carrell makes a funny cameo, as does Kristen Chenoweth.  No matter what anyone else says, I think Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman are great together.  He is actually taller than she is, which had to be an interesting change of pace for her.

Wet ‘N Wild’s Under Your Spell seemed like a good fit for Bewitched, since both Nicole and Will fall under each other’s spells (Will quite literally).  This polish was a lovely color; it reminded me of black cherry soda, which I have always loved.  This picture is two coats and a top coat.

This is another ManiCurve polish brush, which means the brush is super fat and unwieldy, at least for me.  I think with more practice, I might learn to like it, but for right now, I just don’t.  I always get polish all over my cuticles, which requires a lot of tidying up.  I don’t like that.

Although the polish was impressive, I didn’t fall completely under its spell.  Bewitched, however, is a totally different story. ~E
