Overview
Only two casting choices exist to play the Devil: Old Scratch himself...and Jack Nicholson. The Witches of Eastwick took the better actor and this slyest, sexiest supernatural comedy thriller ever earned New York† and Los Angeles†† Film Critics Best Actor Awards for the two-time Oscar® winner.†††

Three modern-day "witches" (Cher, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer) yearn for Mr. Right in a New England town. Is the arrival of wealthy and irresistible Daryl Van Horne (Nicholson) a coincidence — or the women's unconscious sorcery at work? Based on John Updike's bestseller, The Witches of Eastwick is a star-bright otherworldly delight.

†For Witches of Eastwick, Ironweed and Broadcast News.
††ForThe Witches of Eastwick and Ironweed; co-winner with Steve Martin.
†††Best Actor (1975) for One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest and Best Supporting Actor (1983) for Terms of Endearment.
