And The Worst Movie Adaptation of a TV Show Is...

1. "Bewitched" Although Nicole Kidman is the perennially perfect choice to play a witch, it’s curious how the makers of the “Bewitched” movie decided to cast some disappearing spells of their own. Billed more as an “homage” to the wacky supernatural series which ran from 1964 to 1972, the 2005 remake fails on almost every level.

Gone is any chemistry between the Kidman and Will Ferrell, who spends most of the film looking baffled and out of place. Gone is the name Samantha Stephens; instead, Kidman plays a character named Isobel Bigelow. And gone is Samantha’s fantastical mother, Endora (played to the winking hilt by Agnes Moorehead). In her place is Michael Caine. In short: "Bewitched" be-sucks.
