You put the lime in the coconut.....,
This review is from: Practical Magic [DVD]  (DVD)
....And drink it all up. And that's exactly what i did with this movie.
Me, my mum, my sister and my best friend all love this film.
I haven't read the book and didn't even know that there was one, but i plan on buying and reading it. It wont matter if it's different from the film because i love this film ayway.
Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman shine on screen and make for good acting partners, which i found surprising.
Goran Visjnic (i think that's how you spell it), was excellent as the creepy boyfriend and Stockard Channing and Dianne Weist were perfect as the slightly eccentric aunts.
The story revolves mainly around two sisters who live in a small town with their aunts.
There is a curse upon the female's in the family that if any man falls in love with them he will die. And unfortunately that's what happens to Sally's husband early on in the film.
After moving back in with her aunts Sally's sister, Gillian, gets herself into trouble with her scary Bulgarian boyfriend and calls on her beloved sister for help.
The ensuing mishaps and blunders make for good viewing and are just a little scary but a lot of fun.
The girls find themselves trying to cover their tracks with little or no success and in the end the witch's have to put their faith and trust in the women of the town who, for many years have feared and wondered about them, in order to save Gillian's life.
Magic, mayhem and just a little murder are all thrown into the cauldron to make this an enjoyable warm fuzzy movie.
Well worth the money. Highly recommend it.
