I just saw the trailer for the upcoming release of the theatrical version of Bewitched, starring Nicole Kidman as Samantha and Will Ferrell as Darren. Well, they’re actually the characters who reprise those TV roles as the movie takes on the remaking of the sitcom. Or, something like that. But, never mind that; it’s not important.
What I want to warn you about is the horrible job Ms. Kidman does in wiggling her nose. In point of fact, her nose hardly moves at all. Her mouth goes back and forth, and to the extent that there are peripheral fleshy shifts, you can detect a slight nasal leaning, but nothing that will qualify as a wiggle.
You’d think, wouldn’t you, that in this era of anything-you-can- imagine-can-be-green-screened that Hollywood could give Ms. Kidman a decent nose twitch. This movie could be a disaster of Ishtaric proportions.
