Sally and Gillian Owens, born into a magical family, have mostly avoided witchcraft themselves. But when Gillian's vicious boyfriend, Jimmy Angelov, dies unexpectedly, the Owens sisters give themselves a crash course in hard magic. With policeman Gary Hallet growing suspicious, the girls struggle to resurrect Angelov -- and unwittingly inject his corpse with an evil spirit that threatens to end their family line.

"3.5⭐️ rewatch. It was okay. I’m in the minority not having been a fan of the book at all or particularly the film. I did want to love them both as I really am a sucker for witchy, magical stories but honestly..I don’t think there are too many good ones. Alice Hoffman is definitely not my favorite but the movie was a bit better for me this time around, though still something rubs me the wrong way just as any AH book I’ve read or tried to. Maybe because her stories seem to always focus on the men..in the sense the FMCs are in complete enthrall (usually to losers) and lose their sense of self in the enthralling. I want more woman power in my powerful witchy women stories. Here we get one that doesn’t own her power and another who throws her’s over. For men. "
"This movie is the PERFECT fall watch! It’s fun and heartfelt and so comforting! I really enjoyed seeing Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock play sisters. The plot point of the curse was so heartbreaking, especially with Michael’s death at the beginning! On the whole, this movie just put me in a great mood! It’s so enchanting that I now wish I came from a family of witches too!"
"I love the feeling this movie gives me! The witchy vibes are Immaculate with this one boys. I’d even put this one on during spooky season. Serious but heartwarming with a touch of Whimsy this movie can do it all without breaking a sweat. The relationship between the sisters and aunts is believable but the romance…not so much but the rest of the movie is a treat! "
