''Bewitched'' is TheFilmOfTheSeries... sort of. This film is about the filming of a remake of the series ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'', starring Creator/WillFerrell as Jack Wyatt, an actor who plays Darrin, and Creator/NicoleKidman as Isabel Bigelow, who plays Samantha. Isabel not only plays a witch in the ShowWithinAShow, but is a real witch InUniverse. Postmodern HilarityEnsues, as does romance.

The film was made in 2005 by Creator/{{Sony}}.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Isabel has two moments of this: the first is when she overhears Jack and chooses to get mad about it, the second is when she walks in after she's rewound time and delivers her TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Jack.

* RecursiveCanon: The film is based around the conceit that witches are real, but that the [[Series/{{Bewitched}} 1960s TV series]] was fiction. HilarityEnsues when a real witch is cast in [[ShowWithinAShow a remake]] of the TV series.
** Ultimately [[ZigZaggingTrope zig-zagged]]: although the show is stated to be fictional, several of Isabel's In-Universe relatives are identical to their TV counterparts, right down to their names. As the film progresses, the line between the 1960's TV show, rebooted TV show and In-Universe reality becomes increasingly blurry and eventually disappears. The film even ends with Isabel and Jack moving into a house exactly like the set they film the show on, across the street from a real Gladys and Abner Kravitz.

From then on, it gets [[ZigZaggingTrope zig-zagged]]: although despite the show is being stated to be fictional, several of Isabel's In-Universe in-universe relatives are identical to their TV counterparts, right down to their names.

* RefugeInAudacity: Isabel whenever she's "filming" shortly after she cottons on to the fact that she's TheVoiceless. Iris calls her out on it briefly, but otherwise the little pranks and whatnot are passed off as random occurrences or SFX failure. Mainly used to help keep up the masquerade.
** She also briefly pulls this when she's meeting Jack's ex-wife.
