The wry, comic romantic tale follows the Owens sisters as they struggle to use their hereditary gift for practical magic to overcome the obstacles in discovering true love. I think this is one of the best adaptations of a novel to film.

A great movie. One of my favorite performances for both actresses. Great for Halloween, or any time of year.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

I've never used the term "Chick Flic" as a put down ,.. until now.
The males were so cardoard thin and the script so weak , that I couldn't care about any of it !
Comedy ? ,.. what a waste of great talent.

Practical Magic is a tale of two sisters in a long hereditary line of witches.
Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman portray the Owens sisters who are taught witchcraft by their aunts. Unfortunately the family has a curse should any one of them truly fall in love. One of the sisters gets mixed up with a handsome but troublesome man who becomes a big problem for the sisters. This movie is a blend of comedy and romance with witchcraft and paranormal activity thrown in for good measure.
