...an appealingly old-school Disney comedy.
July 16, 2019
It's a veritable bagful of box office treats.

If you want to watch a sort of scary movie then it's a good watch but a bit overrated

Disney's Hocus Pocus, if frequently saccharine, at least has the power to engage the viewer.

The sheer glut of stuff has the terrible effect of wrecking the pacing, making the not-egregiously-long movie feel substantially more than in its running time.

A movie perfectly matched for pre-Lizzie McGuire tweens looking for something to watch on cable around Halloween while their older siblings were in the basement watching Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees split heads.

An unscary, unfunny game of kids vs. kitschy witches.

They probably should have left this misfire in the broom closet -- with the other wooden vehicles.

This is one of the oddest releases of the summer, and it's hard to imagine it finding a broad audience. With the rather ghoulish deaths of children depicted, it's certainly too strong for very young moviegoers.

Forget amusement parks and hockey teams. It's in movie comedies that Disney is having its real crisis, as evidenced by this would-be laugh-getter that begins with the murder of a child and a triple hanging.

Though children may be satisfied (if the witch stuff doesn't scare them) adults will have a harder time with the by-the-numbers confrontations between the witches and the plucky youths.

Dreadful.

Hocus Pocus is harmless, but it's about as much fun as celebrating Mardi Gras under the influence of candy corn.

As Shakespeare would have certainly written if he'd been on the movie beat, "Double, double toil and trouble, movie stink and critic bubble/'Hocus Pocus' has no focus/has no rhyme, has no reason/ and is... out of season."

Silly but irresistible.
August 15, 2015
This comedy is unusually dark for a Disney production and it makes for patchy entertainment.
August 15, 2015
All things considered, Hocus Pocus is much more entertaining than a pimple-people picture has a right to be.
August 15, 2015
Hocus Pocus remains a delightful family comedy, spooky but never scary as it romps its merry way through the graveyard.
November 2, 2014
Perhaps I underestimate the power of its generational hold, yet considering the potential of a broad Disney witch romp, Hocus Pocus is an incredibly mediocre movie.
October 31, 2013
Still an underrated Disney gem to this day.
