You're in for a devil of a time when three outlandishly wild witches -- Bette Midler (BEACHES, BIG BUSINESS), Sarah Jessica Parker (HONEYMOON IN VEGAS), and Kathy Najimy (SISTER ACT) -- return from 17th-century Salem after they're accidentally conjured up by some unsuspecting pranksters! It's a night full of zany fun and comic chaos once the tricky 300-year-old trio sets out to cast a spell on the town and reclaim their youth -- but first they must get their act together and outwit three kids and a talking cat! Loaded with bewitching laughs, HOCUS POCUS is an outrageously wild comedy that's sure to entertain everyone!Producer David Kirschner came up with the idea for the movie one night while he and his young daughter were sitting outside and his neighbor's black cat strayed by. Kirschner began to unspool a narrative of how the cat was once a boy who was changed into a feline 300 years ago by three witches.Actress Kathy Najimy described her character Mary as "Eddie Haskell as a witch," referring to the character on the classic TV series "Leave It To Beaver." "She sucks up to Winifred [Bette Midler's character] every chance she gets. She wants to be part of the power club and Winifred's got the power."To create the costumes, designer Mary Vogt read many historical books about Salem, Massachusetts. "I even read diaries of women who were hanged as witches," she says.

Halloween, 300 years later, the new boy in town, Max (Omri Katz) lights the candle and the sisters are released. Winifred "Winnie" Sanderson (Bette Midler), leader of the coven, and her sisters Sarah (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Mary (Kathy Najimy) explore the town in search of Max, his sister Dani (Thora Birch) and his friend Allison (Vinessa Shaw). The children are helped by Binx the talking cat who makes it clear that he thinks Max is an idiot.
Watching the witches from 1693 coming into contact with modern technology and running into Halloween costumed people make some of the funniest parts of the film.
It is both spooky enough to keep the children, but not that frightening that they will be scared. It is also fun enough to keep the adults entertained, but be warned this film is addictive (especially the songs).
This is a great family Halloween film, sadly there are no extras, but the film is wonderful.
