Will Ferrell's Nose Job
June 8, 2005
Nicole Kidman may have that perfect twitch as
Samantha Stephens in the big-screen version of

her on such a pedestal, and I'm like, 'Hey Nicole,
what's up? Guess what? I've got gas!'"
And there are sure to be a lot more laughs when
"Bewitched" magically appears in theaters
