This was an interesting take on witchcraft, and witches in general. When a witch fell in love with someone who didn't return it, she cast a curse upon the family that any witch in the family would be fated to lose the one they love,when a dark beetle was seen in the home. Sally had fallen deeply in love with a young man who fell victim to the curse and died, struck by a vehicle. In her grief, she begged for his return and was denied. It was only after her sister Gillian had fallen afoul to a possessive man,when she tried to leave him that she discovered why,when in a fit of rage, he attacked them and in self defense, they had poisoned him. Because they did not want to be arrested for murder, they tried to bring him back and were successful--only to have to kill him again when he attacked them the moment he awoke. Then, it became a matter of putting the spirit back into the grave, all while under the attention of a police detective who had taken to Sally. The movie ends in a wild ritual held by the older witches to free Gillian from the overly possessive ghost. Here, we see witches not as the dark cackling creatures of myth and legend, but as very real people who deal with life in an unorthodox way, and deal with the prejudices of the town in their stride as well. It is fun, funny, and a great way to spend a rainy afternoon.

The kids could probably watch this one - older kids, that is. the younger ones will miss the sexy references, but there ARE scary parts (which kids nowdays are probably well used to anyway).

Normal sisters (well, sort of normal) are really hereditary witches descended from a witch who escaped her hanging in the 1600's by simple jumping out of the rope, thus terrifying the mean townspeople who got her up there. They banished her to a shack on the beach where she had her child, waited for the father who never returned to her and in a fit of screaming pique, wasted her powers by putting a spell on any man who would fall in love with any female of her line. (I would have put a spell on the townies, but that's just me...)

300 years later we find two young sisters who grow into the usual stammering Sandra Bullock and a gorgeous (and surprisingly comedic) Nicole Kidman who are of course - witches. They go to live with "the Aunts" (long story) played by Diane Weist and Stockard Channing, also witches (Major Witches) without whom there would be not much of a movie. Plot gets complicated but fun.

Don't miss!

I love it. I love it. I love it. This is my go-to movie when having a blue day or feel drained of all my resources. Glass of wine and Practical Magic = Better sleep after a hard day.

Love this movie. We had some problems viewing it for some reason. Stopped n buffered alot. Not sure why. Might have been that I ordered the HD version? Not sure. We have HD.

But, Amazon noticed the problem without me saying anything and nicely refunded the money. Which makes me happy I work with this company. They work with you, not against you.

I highly recommend this movie. It's silly, funny, with everyone guessing what's going to happen next. Love the actors in this one. You can't go wrong with this one. Great family movie.

This was a feel good movie, just fun and fantasy. The story is about the responsible sister and a wild, fun loving sister with a curse and quirky family and a New England town.
Sandra Bullock is the reason I bought it, but the entire cast was very good. The ending was probably predictable, but it was still fun and satisphying.
I loved the "How and why it was made" section.
