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.

Although I enjoyed portions of the movie, I can't wholeheartedly recommend something with such an unfortunate and dissatisfying conclusion!

The movie doesn't seem sure what tone to adopt, veering uncertainly from horror to laughs to romance.

The only thing unpredictable about Practical Magic is the unpleasant surprise one feels when the movie reveals itself as a irritatingly creepy supernatural thriller, rather than the offbeat romantic comedy the ads make it out to be.

A witch comedy so slapdash, plodding, and muddled it seems to have had a hex put on it.
Full Review | Original Score: D
January 1, 2000
A mediocre mishmash of female-bonding comedy, schmaltzy romance and blessedly brief horror about latter-day witchcraft!
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

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

Nunca termina por definir si se trata de una historia de amor, de horror o una comedia

The trio of credited writers exhibits a complete failure of imagination!
January 1, 2000
Not that the move isn't fun in spots; it's just a TV-ready mix of camp and curdle.

What a disappointing mess made from such a promising premise!
