It is a good alternative to the bang bang, shoot-em up movies that seem to have been out since I was a kid. I find that though the electronics have made it easier to make these movies more and more gruesome. This movie has a lighter effect to it. The gruesome characters are ugly but less frightening than the flash and burn video game characters which pervade the movies these days.. It is a good farce suitable for younger children

This is a movie we saw in school. I told my grandsons how awesome it was. They were all for my getting it and they just loved it. They have seen it on more than one occasion. Even I lloved it. A fun family movie;)
Witches is a movie well worth seeing for all ages. There are situations that can be intense or scary in a few places for some of the younger ones. There is good humor at points through out the film. It is particularly funny when the witches sense of smell detects a child hiding in their midst . The stench becomes unbearable for them and is quite funny all the faces they make and their reactions. It is fun and very suspenseful to see how Luke, the brave little boy, outwits the Grand High Witch played superbly by Angelica Houston, with the help of his grandma. Rowan Atkinson plays the hotel manager who is a comical character that complements the movies humor. It is an annual Halloween favorite.
I had tried to order this product from another vender and it got lost in the mail somewhere. Thanks for coming through for me. My wife is a teacher and needed this movie for her class. I have always been happy with Overtsock.
