TRANSFORMING television programmes to the big screen is a sure way to guarantee interest in a film before it is even made.

Add one of the most talked about movie stars of our time, Nicole Kidman, and you must have a hit on your hands?

But rather than using the tried and tested method, the writer and director of this film has tried to make a joke of the whole re-hashed television to silver screen formula.

A movie star, played by Will Ferrell, attempts to revive his career with a remake of the classic sitcom but inadvertently casts a real witch (Kidman).

Maybe the straight tried and tested formula would have worked better and made this a smash at the box office. As it is this is not quite good enough. 2/5
