Plot Summary
In the tranquil New England town of Eastwick reside three best friends: sexy dark-haired Alexandra, emotional redhead Jane, and intelligent blonde Sukie. Bored and dateless, this trio of divorced "witches" decide to conjure up their perfect man. He arrives in the form of Daryl Van Horn, who's charismatic, intelligent, and quite literally a "horny little devil". After Daryl easily seduces each witch by tapping into and exploiting her individual needs, the foursome begin living together in communal bliss. But soon the three women realize that Daryl is not the man of their dreams after all, and abandon him. But unfortunately for the lovely trio, hell hath no fury like The Devil scorned...

Professional Reviews

Variety
"...A brilliantly conceived metaphor for the battle between the sexes....Vilmos Zsigmond's photography creates a deeply saturated, supra-real environment where anything can happen and does..." 06/10/1987

USA Today
"...The film's casting dynamics are even more interesting today..." 09/12/1997 p.2D

The Washington Post 9 of 10
Hollywood pulls out all the stops here, including a reordering of John Updike's original book to give you one flashy and chock-full-o'-surprises witches' tale. George "Mad Max" Miller directs crisply and Vilmos Zsigmond's photography shifts moods superbly, from clean New England greens to stark thunderstorm blacks and whites.

But "Witches" depends mostly on Nicholson. Certainly Sarandon (as music teacher Jane Spofford), Cher (earthy sculptress Alexandra Medford) and Pfeiffer (fertile town reporter Sukie Ridgemont) turn in excellent performances, but Jack is crackerjack -- reeling wildly between his quirky "Terms of Endearment" gallantry to the "Heeeere's Johnny" lunacy of "The Shining" with a zest that must be illegal. - Desson Howe

Chicago Sun-Times 9 of 10
"The Witches of Eastwick" is based on the John Updike novel, which must have presented a minefield for George Miller, the director. Fantasies usually play better on the page than on the screen, because in the imagination they don't seem as ridiculous as they sometimes do when they've been reduced to actual images. There are some moments in "The Witches of Eastwick" that stretch uncomfortably for effects - the movie's climax is overdone, for example - and yet a lot of the time this movie plays like a plausible story about implausible people. The performances sell it. And the eyebrows. - Roger Ebert
