Aunt Frances (Stockard Channing) and her sister Aunt Jet (Dianne Wiest) tried to pass on practical magic skills to their nieces, subdued Sally (Sandra Bullock) and fiery Gillian (Nicole Kidman), brought up by the two aunts after their parents died. The aunts concoct spells for the lonely and the lovelorn, but the family's use of witchcraft unfortunately invokes a curse that spells doom to the family's menfolk. Denying her powers, Sally attempted to lead a life minus magic. Her marriage to fish merchant Michael (Mark Feuerstein) brought two daughters -- and Michael's death. Moving into the aunt's seaside mansion, the widowed Sally warns the aunts not to influence her daughters. Sally intervenes when Gillian suffers at the hands of her abusive Bulgarian boyfriend Jimmy (Goran Visnic), and Arizona detective Gary Hallet (Aidan Quinn), investigating Jimmy's disappearance, turns up in town, eyeing Gillian and Sally as the leading suspects. Filmed in Washington (San Juan Island, Whidby Island, Coupeville, Friday Harbor). Bhob Stewart, RoviRead Less

If you like Sandra Bullock, you will like this movie. I had first seen it on TV and felt something was missing so had to order it. It is fun, cute and entertaining. I liked it very much.

She just loves this movie
I bought this for my better half and, face it, it's a chick flick. But...the story line moves right along and there's enough going on (besides the touchy-feely stuff) to hold the male attention as well. That's just in case the very attractive actresses aren't enough for you.
Practical Magic is an excellent choice for a couple's 'movie night'.
