Storyline

All three previously married but now single, best friends sculptress Alex Medford, cellist Jane Spofford and writer Sukie Ridgemont are feeling emotionally and sexually repressed, in large part due to the traditional mores overriding their small New England coastal town of Eastwick. After their latest conversation lamenting about the lack of suitable men in Eastwick and describing the qualities they are looking for in a man, mysterious Daryl Van Horne and his equally mysterious butler Fidel arrive in town. Despite being vulgar, crude, brazen and not particularly handsome, Daryl manages to be able to tap into the innermost emotions of the three friends, and as such manages to seduce each. In turn, the three women blossom emotionally and sexually. After an incident involving one of the town's leading citizens, the ultra conservative Felicia Alden, the three women begin to understand how and why Daryl is able to mesmerize them so fully. The three decide to experiment with some powers ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

All four stars have performed at least one song in a movie: Jack Nicholson sang "La Vie en Rose" in Something's Gotta Give (and had his solo cut out of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever); Cher sang in Mermaids and Burlesque; Susan Sarandon appeared in The Rocky Horror Picture Show singing numerous songs; and Michelle Pfeiffer appeared in Grease 2 and Hairspray. None of them sings in Witches of Eastwick. See more »

Goofs

When Daryl and Fidel (Carel Struycken) have gone to town to get bagels, lox, and ice cream, Daryl jumps in the car and speeds out of town, leaving Fidel behind. As the camera zooms in on Fidel as he watches Daryl drive off, you can clearly see that he has hair on the back of his head, just under his hat. Fidel is otherwise depicted as being bald throughout the movie. See more »

One of the Best
30 July 2001 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that this is one of my favorite movies. The two best things about this movie are the things that movies should have-a great plot and a great cast. The plot is original, funny, dramatic, and there is even a bit of horror. The cast is perfect, each person brings something into the movie-especially Jack. The three women characters bring strength, sensitivity, and sexuality, but the movie does not focus on one trait-women have all three, but its funny that this movie has a character for each character trait-the devil needed to have three for himself, when one man would only need one woman-a good man, anyways. But, my favorite thing about this movie is the plot. There is not one boring part to this film, and that's why I have to say that it is one of the greatest.
