Comedy and horror unite in this tale from director George Miller based on the John Updike novel. Three bored and sex-starved women (Cher, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer) get together once a week for drinks and to fantasise about their ideal man. The morning after one of these sessions, a mysterious man arrives in town in the form of filthy rich Daryl Van Horne (Jack Nicholson), who buys a nearby mansion, and then seduces the friends one-by-one. They do not at first know that Van Horne is in fact Satan in disguise but when his cover is revealed the women plot their escape.
Jack Nicholson was born to play the devil and in George Miller's adaptation of John Updike's novel he plays it for all he's worth. As a wolfish womaniser summoned by three bored women in a picturesque New England town, he's sating all of his appetites with a rakish grin. Cher, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer play the women who discover their untapped magical powers by accident. The smart and sexy singles, out of place in the conservatism of their village, find happiness, however briefly, in the arms and bed of the libidinous devil but he's got his own ulterior motives. Miller revels in the sensual display of sex, food and magic, whipping up a storm of effects that finally get out of hand in an overblown ending. It's a handsome film with strong performances all around but the mix of anarchic comedy and supernatural horror doesn't always gel and Miller seems to lose the plot in his zeal for cinematic excitement. The performances ultimately keep the film aloft: the hedonistic joy that Nicholson celebrates with every leering gaze and boorish vulgarity is almost enough to make bad form and chauvinism cool. --Sean AxmakerSee all Product Description

My gripe, here, is with the print of the Warner Home Video DVD. Poor picture quality, particularly in the first half hour, is a huge disappointment. And the sound is not that good, either. The age of the film is no excuse. I watched, the day before, an immaculate and sparkling print of the Bette Davis classic NOW VOYAGER, so if a 1940s movie can look that good, Warners should have done better with this 1987 film.
This happens time and again with a good many DVDs. Often the original film frame turns out to be cropped, to fit old fashioned television screens. Frequently, the picture quality resembles something shot on a VHS video and crudely transferred. And the annoying part of all this is that there is little on the labeling to warn one of what is on the disc.
It's time DVD manufacturers paid more attention to quality. We are bombarded with messages about how wicked it is to pirate videos, and quite right, too. But from the customer's point of view, passing off an inferior recording as a quality product is also a form of piracy.
This is a great film for a girly night in, I highly recommend it!!

This is a film with a high profile, many Oscar-winning cast. It is an 18 certificate.
