To confirm: I’m not a true hater, I re-watched “Hocus Pocus” this past week. As someone over the age of 14, I’m well aware that I am not the target audience for this film. Even with the appropriate suspension of disbelief, this movie is pretty much a mess.
Witches have no motivation other than being evil
Bette Middler’s contract clearly says “I get all the lines and the other two are just there”
Sarah Jessica Parker’s role is just “slutty, dumb witch”?
The little sister is simply there to get kidnapped
The girl (Allison???) has no defining characteristics beyond “hot, rich, likes Max’s sister”
