A bad sign when the only female in the creative process is Swicord

...applies a layer of Hollywood gloss, sentimentality, and hyperbole to the proceedings.

If nothing else, the screenwriters deserve recognition for the nerve it took to employ what must be the most outrageously lazy writer's device in the history of cinema.

Has something to annoy just about everyone: feminists of either gender, Wiccans, or just people expecting a good movie.

A flat, unappealing potion!

Part comedy, part family drama, part romance, part special-effects mystery-adventure, and not entirely satisfying on any of these levels.

The film consequently feels anemic and scattered most of the time.

A Halloween movie with amorous themes but is such a hodgepodge that it serves as neither an effective, Charles -Addams- style spoof of the supernatural genre nor a convincing romantic comedy.

A disappointing brew of slick commercial moviemaking and old-fashioned romantic fantasy!

So misguided in so many ways that it makes you wonder how such talented and high-profile actors would even get involved in an embarrassing clap-trap like this one.

The most appealing aspect of "Practical Magic," unsurprisingly, is the pairing of Bullock and Kidman, two of the most likable stars around. Both are in terrific form here...

The film creaked to a halt like a 1956 Buick running on fumes!

Light hearted and fun!

Film Journal International

Practical Magic, a promising but muddled comedy about sibling witches with, perhaps inevitably, some unthreatening feminism thrown into the mix.
