Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie contains mildly scary moments in which a vague, smoky darkness threatens the main characters and causes small fires. The loss of two parents (which happened before the main action of the movie takes place) causes some sadness. A couple of characters display vapid, Valley girl-type behavior.

Is It Any Good?
The Mowry sisters, twins in real life and former stars of the Disney Channel show Sister, Sister, seem to be enjoying themselves, and it's fun to watch them discover that they're sisters. They seem very comfortable working together, and each allows the other to have the limelight at the right moments.
Twitches is tailor-made for the tween and teen age groups, though younger kids may also enjoy it. This is a Disney made-for-TV movie, so nothing heavy or particularly iffy happens, though there are sad moments as the girls each come to terms with the parents they've lost. The scary moments might be a bit much for little kids, but the frequent references to shopping might be what put parents on alert. Why do movies so frequently paint young girls (and women in general) as shopaholics?
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.
