Our Score
This raunchy metaphor for the battle between the sexes from Mad Max director George Miller soars with inspired lunacy, as three romance-starved suburban women dabble in off-white magic and some offbeat chandelier swinging. While Jack Nicholson dominates this spellbinding adaptation of John Updike's ironic bestseller as the horny little devil, the luminous female talent (Cher, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer) almost matches him in a charming sensual fantasy that's slightly overloaded with needless special effects.


Three single women dabble in magic to conjure up the perfect lover, and unintentionally summon Satan himself, who seduces them one by one. They come to realise the danger the lecherous devil presents and decide to end their relationships, but the infernal rogue does not take kindly to rejection. Fantasy comedy based on John Updike's novel, with Jack Nicholson, Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer and Susan Sarandon.
