Disneyfied Halloween pantomime tailored exclusively for
the performances of Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker & Kathy Najimy as three witches inadvertently brought back to existence by a group of kids.
The characters and musical performances are equally as
irritating as they are entertaining, although young kids and kids-at-heart will most likely enjoy it. Still, it's far from the studio's best works, but a reasonably easy watch which fits in
well with the occasion.
