Quotes

Gwen Cromwell Piper: [In the kitchen, packing leftovers] And after I specifically told you not to tell them anything about it!
Aggie Cromwell: I was only trying to do what you should have done long ago. Why, you're on the verge of breaking a tradition that goes back a thousand years!

The Witches Brew up a good holiday movie!
25 October 2006 | by the_moody_youngestSee all my reviews

This is one of the greatest movies I have ever seen! The acting was excellent, the plot was TOTALLY original, Marnie and Dylan were hilarious, and Sophie was just adorable! Debbie Renolds did fabulous as Agatha Cromwell, the Grandma of Marnie, Dylan, and Sophie, and Gwen's mother. Debbie plays a witch from Halloweentown, and her granddaughter, Marnie Cromwell, comes to Halloweentown with her brother Dylan, and her cute little sister, Sophie to begin her witch training. And Marnie must work to save Halloweentown from the evil... not telling! Just watch the movie and you'll find out. Benny was also a great lovable character that entertained me. Enjoy this film because it is so excellent!
