It's just a bunch of Hocus Pocus.
After 300 years of slumber, three sister witches are accidentally resurrected in Salem on Halloween night, and it us up to three kids and their newfound feline friend to put an end to the witches' reign of terror once and for all.
If Sarah Jessica Parker is the hottest one in your little trio, you know you've got to be a pack of ugly witches.
Sorry, somebody had to say it.
-The only time it pays off to be a virgin
-The only time Sarah Jessica Parker is attractive is when she plays a witch,
-Bette Midler can cover the shit out of "I put a spell on you"
-Hey look it's that girl from "Eyes Wide Shut" I wonder what she's doing now.
-Hey look it's that girl from "American Beauty" I wonder what she's doing now.
-Hey look it's that guy from "Dumb and Dumber" I wonder what he's doi-oh right.
-Sarah Jessica Parker playing....Sarah.
-Cheesy 90s source material meant as a TV Disney film
Still a childhood classic. Will watch again.
I used to watch this, happily, every year, since it came out. Unfortunately I think this tradition needs to end because I just didn't get the same joy from it this time around, dare I say, I think I've seen Hocus Pocus way too many times. I still love it, but I think I'm going to have to shelve it for the next few Halloweens and just look back on it fondly, I'll be sure to quote it enough to annoy my husband and maybe sing "I Put a Spell On You" like Winifred a few times.."...my name is Winifred..what's YOURS?!"
Bette Midler's idiosyncratic, avant-garde energy is put to good use in this supernatural horror-comedy about three vein sister-witches who are evoked after a cavalier young virgin lights the black-flamed candle that summons them from the grave.
Midler is a snarky, horse-toothed sadist with a penchant for incantations, whose special attachment to a bewitched book that glares up at her with an embedded eye is the reason for her alpha-witch status. Kathy Najimy is her subservient sister; a delightfully large, bumbling villainess with a lopsided mouth and a good nose for sniffing out children. Sarah Jessica Parker (in a role that precedes her iconic turn in Sex and the City) rounds out the triad as a skittish nymphomaniac with a hypnotic…
*Doug Jones! You show up in the darndest places. What a flexible chameleon you are.
*Sarah Jessica Parker, you are so scarily sexy, giving adolescent boys nightmares of the best kind. What a knockout!
*Bette Midler, you just had to get in a song now, didn't you? I'm good with it though, cause you know how to work a room, even though you've been dead for 300 years and shouldn't know the first thing about belting.
*Kathy Najimy, wish you used a different quirk besides talking out of the side of you mouth, since it was driving my nuts, but you know I love ya.
*Kenny Ortega, you've been listening to your mentor, Gene Kelly! You really know how to…
The message to this movie is "If you're a virgin you either a loser, weirdo and you deserve to get bullied", and that's why I hate this movie.
I couldn't get it to this movie, a lot of people like this movie but I didn't for good reasons. The movie left a horrible feel inside of me after finishing watching it. The movie is rude, horrible and straight up ugly film making, it was like a high school bully wrote this movie, probably why this movie is horrible.
The good things in the movie was the three witches and some of designs where pretty, but the movie still blows.
I did some research and found Leonardo Dicaprio turned this movie,…
Kenny Ortega knows how to thrill and excite children by using a potent formula that has cheese, but a good quality one. Bette Midler is such a delight!
Two Stars for Bette Midler.
Two Stars for Sarah Jessica Parker's Stevie Nicks impression.
This is a timeless Disney classic for sure.
I saw this has a kid, way back in the late 90's, but I couldnt' remember a thing from it, accept the broom vrs car race near the film's third act. So glad I was able to find this online again.
Put me in a good mood.

I'll be perfectly honest, I don't know what I was expecting this film to be. I had no idea what it was about, apart from the fact that Bette Midler sings I Put A Spell On You. Imagine my surprise when after finishing it, I realised that I had just watched a film of wonderful enchantment!
The basic premise is a trio of sister witches are accidentally awakened from a deep slumber on a Halloween night in Salem (because where else would it be set?). The rest of the film is basically following the three kids…
I put a spell on you
'Cause you're mine
You better stop the things you do
I ain't lyin'
No I ain't lyin' 🎶🎶🎶🎶💕
I loved this film as a youngster, so when I watch it now its for nostalgic reasons rather than for entertainment.
Bette Midler tho.
Throughout the whole film the male kid get's mocked for being a virgin. He doesn't lose it by the end of the film. Where's the resolution, man!
