Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (9):
Kids say (3):

The younger the viewer, the more she or he will enjoy DOUBLE DOUBLE TOIL AND TROUBLE. Older kids will probably see certain plot twists coming from a mile away; unlike the quality obvious in a classic such as The Wizard of Oz, this movie's weaknesses will be clear to anyone over the age of 8. The story is formulaic and so are the performances by all but Leachman, and they include a turn by the affable Eric McCormack (Will & Grace) as the dad. Still, it's a decent Halloween movie choice for kids who are sensitive or too young for scarier tales.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
