Hocus Pocus 2 is everything you want for a sequel of the previous cult classic, it may be subpar in story, but it excels in its acting and heart!!!
What I Like:
-If you are a fan of the first movie, you will enjoy this one as well, it is a lot of campy fun, and the comedy will make you chuckle, and some moments that makes you feel good
-One of the reasons why this is so enjoyable is because the three leads of Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker all really enjoy playing the characters of the Sanderson sisters, and if they are having fun with it, you should too
The So So:
-It is campy, but a good kind of campy, like there are scenes where it is just plain old dumb, but it is a funny good kind of dumb that you just have to sit back and enjoy for what it is
What I Didn’t Like:
-The story is a cliched Halloween family type of movie, if you’re expecting something more, you will be deeply disappointed
The first film is a cult Halloween family movie classic. This sequel just adds to the fun of what you loved from the first film. The ladies playing the Sanderson Sisters did add some passion and fun to their roles, and that is all you can ever ask of them. Add the new cast into the mix, it does give you some freshness into a film that came out in the early 90’s. It’s on Disney+, it is Halloween time, get your family and enjoy a good old campy film!!!
