"Strange and fantastic, and not always in a good way"
I enjoy Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman. They both amuse me greatly. And I wasn't expecting much from this flick. Maybe that's why I liked it. It definitely wasn't any huge surprise, but I didn't find myself wanting to throw things at the screen, either."Practical Magic" is, simply put, a flick. It has no substance, no weight, like the cotton candy that you buy at a carnival against your better judgement. It's not even necessarily something you like, but you find yourself drawn to it, nonetheless. Two sisters, both witches, grow up in a small town, learning their craft. One, Sandra Bullock, has very strong powers, but doesn't like to use them. The other, Nicole Kidman, is rather weak, but she has something else on her side- sex appeal. The second runs away to the west coast, and the first falls in love. That's enough plot to get one started, because it's not too complicated to figure out. The acting is what you would expect from a flick like this, and the script and direction make it a thoroughly enjoyable piece of cotton candy.If you watch it, you'll probably like it, just don't rot your teeth because it's not worth that much.
