The Witches of Eastwick

Based on John Updike's novel, this black comedy-fantasy stars Cher, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer as three single women in a sleepy New England town. Unknowingly, they conjure up with their hidden powers their idea of the perfect man. It turns out to be a horny little devil (Jack Nicholson, in a tour-de-force performance), who will change their lives forever. For better or worse!

It's hard to say who's the best of the four leads, since they all work together perfectly. And some of the jabs at male chauvinism and women's sexual needs are right on target. The film with its grand special effects and lavish sets is almost perfect, save for the times when the story gets mean-spirited. Most of the time, it's a very enjoyable fable. I just wouldn't recommend eating cherries before you see this.
