When Mother Malkin, the queen of evil witches, escapes the pit she was imprisoned in by professional monster hunter Spook decades ago and kills his apprentice, he recruits young Tom, the seventh son of the seventh son, to help him.
The leading actors (Jack Davenport, whose next picture was "Pirates of the Caribbean") and Neve McIntosh are very good as the "Opposites Attract" couple. Although the plot is formulaic, the charm of the leads make it a very pleasant romantic comedy. She is a Gypsy with a young daughter, he is a snobbish Englishman with a young daughter. They met in a very improbable way, and you can fill in the rest. But even if the formula is adhered to, the beauty of the English (Scottish?) countryside, and the obvious chemistry between the leads lift this charming little picture above the formulas and into its own territory. Highly recommended to the fans of this genre.
