Storyline

The mayor and judge of Salem trump up the notorious witch trials in support of their land grab scam. The local clergy pursue justice, while the assistant minister also pursues the town baker, Sara Lee. The action is spiced up by pot-smoking Indians, female New England clam chowder wrestling, and the mischief of a real witch. Written by <rth@ece.arizona.edu>

this was original and disgustingly funny
22 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this was one of the last original funny movies of our time, and if you have not seen it, go out and do it. the acting is spectacular, the jokes could not be any funnier, and this woman has this thing with calling her cat pussy that generates much laughter. if you like to watch MADTV and SNL, then you would like this one. the salem witch trials are not getting any funnier, so rent this movie at once!! you will find the sort of jokes you find in mel brooks movies, like "spaceballs" and "history of the world", but surprisingly Brooks had nothing to do with this flick. what's great is that modernness is brought into this film, with a sexy witch and women suspiciously performing a rap. the power of the witch generates laughter that only you the viewer can laugh at.
