Let’s start with this: Everything. But one thing went wronger than everything else, which included such things as:
Making it a movie about making a movie based on the Bewitched TV series. What the FUCK were they thinking? You’d think it would be fucking OBVIOUS that this was a bad idea. It’s the sort of idea you could imagine the lead characters in “The Producers” considering and rejecting in favor of “Springtime for Hitler.”
Not having a single laugh out loud funny line or moment in the entire fucking movie. Not having a lot of moments or lines that are even mildly humorous. Did they not know they were doing a comedy, or what? My god, there was a ton of stuff they could do by ringing the changes on the differences in sexual politics when Bewitched was made for TV and the way things are now. And they completely missed it. Did everybody who looked at the script have a tin brain?
but most of all, they made this mistake
- I could not bleieve, not for an instant, not for a nanosecond, that any woman in her right mind would find Will Ferrell’s character attractive. He stunk up every scene he was in. There is NO WAY any human being would want to KNOW him, much less have sex with him. I mean, it takes all kinds, cherchez le femme and all that, but … Jeebus! Jeebus Cripes on a Bicycle! Yech! Ich! Ptooey!
