In the quaint New England town of Eastwick, Alexandra, Jane and Sukie yearn to meet the man of their dreams. One rainy night, the women each express an overpowering need for just one dynamic male capable of challenging their liberated spirits, a man who could become their inspiration, their joy, their ... everything. But take care with what you dream, for your dream may come true ... as it does for the Witches of Eastwick.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that there's much sex talk, including frank discussions of what penis sizes/shapes women prefer. No sex is actually shown, despite female characters dressing in alluring clothes and obviously participating in a bedroom foursome with Daryl Van Horne. Some religious households may be offended by the "witchcraft" (present in the title more than anywhere else), likeability of the devil, or the insignificance of the neighborhood church. Horrific elements -- mostly played for laughs -- include gross vomiting and Daryl mutating into a monstrous being at the end, potentially scary for little ones, who shouldn't be watching in the first place thanks to frequent swearing (the f-word, above all). There are idealized scenes of romantic, recreational drinking. Teens assigned to read the John Updike novel for school should know that the movie is no substitute; it doesn't share the same themes, tone, or even time period.
