The Witches of Eastwick (1987)

Three single women; Jane, Sukie and Alexandra are all friends living in a boring little town called Eastwick, New England. They haven't had much luck with men and one night discuss their ideal man, not realizing of course that all of them are witches and conjure him up. Enter Daryl Van Horne, a mysterious man who arrives in Eastwick rather suddenly and ends up buying the town's landmark, The Lennox Estate. Alex is the first to meet him, and finds herself utterly repulsed by him but ends up sleeping with him anyway. Soon after he seduces Jane and Sukie as well, but the three women find that Daryl isn't as perfect as they begin to realize. Nicholson plays the usual eccentric character, while Cher, Pfeiffer and Sarandon are all wonderful and have great chemistry. Starring Jack Nicholson, Cher, Susan Sarandon, Michelle Pfeiffer 7/10
