I just opened this movie today to watch and I have 2 Blue Ray players that all get stuck and won't pay further in the same place. The disc is not scratched r dirty. Amazon doesn't give me the option to exchange for the same movie - which is what I want to do. I only got to watch a portion of it until it stops. Every other movie I have works great and this one is clearly defective as it does the same thing (stops) in the same spot in the movie at all three blue rays I have.

I had heard of this movie a few times and saw it at a good price, was wanting to watch it so I ordered it. As far as downloading, purchasing, pricing, etc. everything was fine. I am pleased. But I did not personally like the movie. I liked the actresses but I thought the story was long, drawn out and very boring and I was not a fan.

This disappointing film has none of the irony and wistful quality that made Alice Hoffman's book of the same name such a - well, magical read. The film instead is ruined by a rushed, connect-the-dots script that fails utterly to capture the nuances and charm that made the book such a hit when it was published.

One reviewer characterized the film, which received mostly poor reviews, thusly: "Barbie joins a coven." To be fair to Bullock and Kidman, the "Barbies" in question, there wasn't much they could do with the awful script. That aside, the review could not be more apt. A good cast, including Aidan Quinn, an actor I greatly respect, can't redeem the bad writing that reduces the original material to cute gimmicks and a dreadful ending that not only doesn't appear in the book, but runs contrary to the book's underlying observations about the relationship between desire and wisdom.

I cannot recommend the book highly enough. I cannot recommend the movie at all.

A poorly written romantic fantasy-comedy. Extraordinarily bad dialogue -- there are late-night infomercials that are Shakespearean masterpieces compared to this bomb.
Graced with the likes of the truly talented Stockard Chaninng and Dianne Weist (one can only hope that their pay checks made up for this indignity), Practical Magic is about two young witches, played by Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock. Kidman plays the hot witch, and Bullock...well, Bullock plays the earnest one, the same part she always plays.
The best witch movie has always been the 1942 Veronica Lake picture , I Married A Witch. This film doesn't hold a black candle to it.

This story was miscast. Nicole Kidman's sexuial chemistry didn't translate on the screen. Sandra Bullock put into the role as main care giver and most responosible adult seemed okay. The relationship between sisters felt more like coworkers than siblings who's special gifts are so unique, they can really only confide and understand each other. Sandra Bullock's love interest seemed farfetched too. Thought it could have been much more than it was. The only thing that felt true was Bullock's spunkiness.

This movie has an outstanding cast and is a complete disappointment. The story makes no sense, the characters respond to situations with unbelievable and unlikeable responses. Nicole Kidman's character is completely annoying with no redeeming traits other than she's pretty. The male characters are one dimensional beefcake whose only purpose is to allow the women to show how adorably zany they are. This is clearly a vanity project where the female leads got way too into the fantasy of being sexy witches and stopped remembering the responsibilities of good story telling.

This has got to be the worse movie with Sandra Bullock in I have ever seen. The pace was so slow. It was dull and boring and if you took out all the cheesy or just plain annoying scenes the actually plot (which was not that interesting in and of itself) would have taken a good 10 minutes to film.... Ugh, don't waste your time with this one unless you have the mentality of a gnat. This movie was in no way intellectually stimulating, entertaining, funny, heart warming, nor was it a feel good film.
