Be warned. Be ready.

Nicole plays Isabel Bigelow/Samantha Stephens

Bewitched tells the story of failing actor Jack Wyatt, who is planning to remake the classic 1960's sitcom "Bewitched" (with himself in the starring role of Darrin). When looking for an unknown actress to play Samantha, Jack comes across a young woman named Isabel, whose nose bears a striking resemblance to Elizabeth Montgomery's, who played Samantha in the original TV version of Bewitched. He's convinced she is the best person to play Samantha, but unknown to him Isabel is actually a real witch. Meanwhile, Isabel's father Nigel isn't happy about his daughter wanting to be normal, but he becomes distracted when he meets Iris, the movie star playing Samantha's mother Endora in the film.

[4] Continuity Error - When Isabel is sitting after Jack tells her to call her with his shoe you can see her tea bag hanging out of her cup but when they switch back to her it is gone and then back again.
[5] Continuity Error - At the premiere party for the show, Isabel is wearing a green top and black slacks at first. When she is at the valet station, telling Jack that she is a witch, she is wearing a skirt under her coat.
[6] Continuity Error - The amount of bread slices is different on the plates at the restaurant where Isabel orders scrambled eggs. At first there is three and then she puts two in the toaster but the next second they're there again.
