Funny, fun and sexy 'black' comedy
4 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw a bad review of this film here and decided to add my two cents. I just watched it again and want to emphasize that this is a fun, funny, lightly black comedy/romance that is one of my FAVORITE films! I didn't even know it was a TV film until I read that here, I encountered it on cable and then bought the video. I love the humor, the cute characters, the really good storyline and the delicately dark humor of this film. Reinhold is in a lot of fluff films but this is NOT one of them, he's charming and carries this film well, alongside Rachel (forget the actress' name) and his dead cousin, overplayed with charm by Anthony LaPaglia.

Several memorable scenes: citizens of Frogmore County shooting down a crow in the saloon, the dream/haunting scenes from LaPaglia, the bowling alley moments and, most especially, the two shopkeepers who put one over on Alex Gage, who has begun to fear witches. And the final fire scene, plus the last moments of the film as Rachel flies away.

Just really fun and funny, a great film, far better than most crap out of Hollywood and just about the best thing I've ever seen Reinhold in! I completely recommend it and have two copies myself.

Great fun, sexy and fun 'light' black comedy! TR
