Bewitched: The Movie

We saw the movie tonight. It sucks.

Hollywood threw all of the talent, wit and ideas at the movie they could devise, and it still sucks.

Some things can only be made of a time and a place and one true love. Liz Montgomery loved Bill Asher and he her. Between them, they could make Bewitched in the light of that love. Some of the best episodes are when Liz is pregnant with her children, and certainly the first two seasons. It doesn't translate to today and it can't be made again because it isn't honest, and it isn't Liz and Bill.

Somehow that makes me glad.

Magic is real. Maybe that is the point of the movie and that is the best they can do is make that point: magic only happens to people in love.
