Roald Dahl's The Witches

Roald Dahl's The Witches ★★½

While Anne Hathaway and Octavia Spencer are a clearly having a ton of fun and it's reasonably entertaining, "The Witches" essentially just feels like a lesser version of the 1990 film with an excessive amount of bad visual effects and an unbalanced tone. It's even more underwhelming when you consider it was directed by Robert Zemeckis who 20 years ago would've crushed this. That being said, I don't get why some are hating this as much as they are, it's perfectly harmless.
