Thackery Binks switches between Old English and 1990s slang. During the first parts of the movie, he uses Old English. When he first talks to Max, he uses slang and sarcasm. At the end of the movie when his spirit appears to Dani, Max, and Allison, he speaks in Old English again. See more »

When aired on the ITV network in the UK, the scene where the witches were hanged and cast the spell that would bring them back were cut. Viewers therefore didn't know exactly how they would come back. See more »
First of all, anyone watching this film has to remember that it is aimed towards children. You cannot have the expectations that there is some deep meaning connected with this film, or that it is going to be another Bette Midler comedy with R-rated humor. If that is what you are looking for, watch "Ruthless People". This film is funny and cute. That is all. If I was a 10 year old child, I would love this movie. It is a family film and nobody should expect anything more. Secondly, it has Bette Midler and a wonderfully funny Kathy Najimy and dim-witted Sarah Jessica Parker......so, ENJOY!
