Critic Reviews:

Contrarily to expectation, it is an immensely enjoyable bubble of frothy confection. It certainly is a film that critically divides people – people either hate it or they like it, with few seemingly in between.


Unfortunately, what was heretofore a bright and somewhat piercing look at male domination, as well as a perceptive insight into the female spirit, degenerates into a zap-dash, special effects war: the three “witches” vs. smiling Jack.


Because he’s played by Jack Nicholson, Daryl comes across initially as a crass yet impish ladies’ man, the sort that women always go for when they know they shouldn’t. But in the harsh light of recent revelations about Harvey Weinstein, among others, his behavior seems alarmingly predatory.
