Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie, like the original TV series, may be cute but it also offers a somewhat skewed picture of a woman and her power. Samantha (Kidman) lies about her true nature and abilities in order to get what she wants. She uses her powers but then feels guilty about doing so, and her heart's desire is to find a "man who needs me." The film includes some language (for example, "pussy," "dick," "giant male reproductive organ"), brief drinking and smoking, mildly comic drug and sexual allusions.

Sexual Content

Very mild, mostly in forms of jokes.


Some flying on a broomstick and whirling around.


Obnoxious language to designate arrogance and ignorance.

Social Behavior

Lying, cheating, casting spells.


TV set catering and expressed concerns about marketing the TV series; footage from original series to sell newly available DVD.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some drinking and smoking.
