To Be or Not To Be Witched

In case you haven't noticed, this blog is not about only new and recently released movies. It's about any movie ever made that has something in it that bugs me. Today is about Bewitched. It's not that old, but I just thought I needed to say something so people don't wonder why I'm not talking about Alvin and The Chipmunks. I'm sure when I see it, I'll have something to say about it.
Most remakes have problems. Sure, it was kind of a clever idea to make the movie about people making a remake of the original show, but it would have been better if they just made a straightforward remake. Does that make sense? It does to me.

The biggest thing in this movie that bothered me was Uncle Arthur. Steve Carell did a great job playing the character, but he just didn't belong. Was he a dream or was he real? At first it seems like Jack (Will Ferrell ) is just dreaming, but then he wakes up and Uncle Arthur is still there. So he was real. But that doesn't make sense. How could he be real? Uncle Arthur was a fictional character from the original TV show. Even in this movie Bewitched is a fictional TV show. Nicole Kidman's character was a witch, but she wasn't the real Samantha. And what was the deal with the Endora lady? Apparently she was a real witch too, although they never confirmed it really. Was she the real Endora, or just an actress playing Endora on a show about a show, on a movie? I'm so confused. Isn't Endora the planet where the Ewoks live?
