Premiered: June 12, 1987
Directed By: George Miller
Going into this film, I only knew of its amazing cast. And based on the title, I was expecting witches in more of a Hocus Pocus style. However, this wasn’t the case.
Three single women – Alexandra (Cher), Jane (Susan Sarandon) and Sukie (Michelle Pfeiffer) – are looking to put themselves out there again. They’re surprised when a mysterious man – Daryl Van Horne (Jack Nicholson) – moves to their small town. Van Horne courts the women and they all oblige. When Van Horne’s intentions become odd, the three conspire on his demise.
Not knowing anything about the plot beforehand, I was surprised to find out how sexual this film was. There was a strange Sister Wives-vibe with the women’s relationship with Nicholson’s character.
Regardless, the movie is pretty funny. Just very outlandish.
Final say: Save it for a rainy day. ★★★☆☆
