Practical Magic (* Ĺ) - What was the point of this film? And thatís a legitimate question - because what is the point?Is the film supposed to be about two complete opposite sisters who happen to be witches and the lives they have to lead? How about the plot that kicks in about the abusive boyfriend, who gets killed, brought back to life, killed again, and then starts tormenting and possessing the sisters? What about the romantic angle of Sandra Bullockís character, who, about an hour into the film, starts to like a detective investigating the case of the missing boyfriend? This film wants to be about so much that it blows every possible angle which could have made an interesting flick. Thereís nothing interesting about the witchcraft aspect - especially since thatís supposed to be the main focus of the film - because there really isnít a whole lot of witchcraft going on - a subject much more interesting in the mediocre The Craft and the far superior The Witches of Eastwick. The film isnít very funny and I think it was meant to be a comedy. The human drama isnít that well developed because the dead boyfriend interrupts that flow and decides to turn the film into a half-assed version of The Frighteners whenever it feels like it. And the romantic angle doesnít really spark because itís too little and way too late into the film for me to care.This is just a mess of a movie that needed another rewrite or ten before it got my money.
