21 August 2009. This popular, mass audience romantic fantasy casts a bit of magic over the whole family comedy movie with dramatic elements. Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman along with veteran actresses Stockard Channing and Diane Wiest with a strong supporting role from Goran Visnjic form a delightful, lighthearted romp in witchcraft. At the same time dramatic and horror elements are carefully and smoothly introduced that balanced this overall entertaining movie. While this isn't' some serious dramatic endeavor nor a script that is award-winning, Practical Magic is a strong contender for a permanent place in children's and adolescent bedtime viewing just like bedtime stories were told by their mothers decades ago. 8/10.

Light and entertaining

Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest indulge in some "Practical Magic," a 1998 film directed by Griffin Dunne. Bullock and Kidman play sisters, Sally and Gillian, both of whom are witches. One (Kidman) is free-wheeling and out in the world, and Bullock is a widowed mother with children who refuses to have anything to do with magic. One of their ancestors put a curse on any man involved with a woman in her family, and the curse lost the sisters their father and Bullock's husband. Her two aunts, however, Francis and Bridget (Channing and Wiest) still practice their spells. When Gillian takes up with the wrong man (again) (Goran Visjnic),she calls Sally. As a result of Sally's help, they find themselves in a lot of trouble and have to take drastic measures. Things don't work out as planned.

I'm not sure what the problem is - it appears that some people on IMDb expect every film to be Magnolia, and if it isn't, they reject it as junk. This movie is what it is intended to be - light, with some suspense, some scares, some fun, lots of warmth, and great characters. If you read the book, disappointment is more understandable, and I feel your pain.

The acting is excellent, with four top actresses as the stars, and the relationships between them are excellent as well. As others have mentioned, the best part of the film is when they start calling neighbors so they can have a coven.

Highly recommended.

A kookie chick-flick with a plot that resembles a supernatural remake of 'What a Way to Go!' with a bit of 'The Monkey's Paw' (and an appropriately twee score by Alan Silvestri) thrown in.

With Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock as the sisters and Stockard Channing and Diane Wiest as their 'bohemian' aunts it can't fail to provide a diverting couple of hours.
