Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

A malicious, long-lost cousin causes problems for small-town sorceress Cassie Nightingale (Catherine Bell) in the undemanding fourth film in the popular Good Witch TV-movie series. Using her own spellcasting skills, black sheep Abigail (Sarah Power) throws her aunt's blissful life into disarray: creating mild domestic tension between newlywed Cassie and her stepfamily and complicating her campaign to become local mayor. However, as usual, nothing shakes the luminous Bell's constant benevolence and serenity, with her soothing but simplistic words of wisdom bringing quick and convenient solutions before any real drama develops. While this emphasis on optimistic aphorisms over actual magical intervention makes the predictable fantasy slighter and less fun than its predecessors, there's still enough customary warmth and sweetness to keep fans happy.
