Practical Magic fails to cast spell on critics, but fans bewitched

Practical Magic, which took just under $47 million at the US box office, attracted largely negative reviews among the critics, with the Chicago Sun-Times’ Roger Ebert noting, for example: “The movie doesn’t seem sure what tone to adopt, veering uncertainly from horror to laughs to romance.”

Among film fans, though, the picture has acquired a cult following. On the review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes, its 74% audience score far outstrips its 24% critics’ rating. “I can’t believe this has a low [critics] rating,” one Rotten Tomatoes user wrote, adding: “I watch this every year near Halloween.”

This film is an iconic fall watch!” another audience reviewer noted. “It’s funny, spooky, and an overall delightful rom com.” One user even went so far as to brand Practical Magic “the greatest witch movie of all time!”
