(2005) Amiable retread of the 1960s sitcom, as a washed-up movie actor (Will Ferrell) decides to revive the series (and his career), casting an unknown (Nicole Kidman) to play his wife, not realizing she’s an actual witch, leading to romantic complications. Writer-director Nora Ephron’s comedy is more pleasantly amusing than outright hilarious. But the mercurial Kidman is a total delight, Ferrell has some bright moments, and there are felicitous turns by Michael Caine, Shirley MacLaine, and Carole Shelley, as well as a positive message about honesty and friendship. Some crude expressions, sexual humor and innuendo, cartoonish witchcraft elements, and partial blurred nudity make this best for adults and perhaps older adolescents. (A-III – adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned) Showtime (cable)
