The Good Witch's Family: A huge step backwards
This 4th Good Witch movie has badly fallen behind and pales in comparison to it's predecessors.
Now to be clear The Good Witch movies are hardly aimed at me, I'm not the demographic but when I watched the first film I found myself actually bewitched *Pun intended* and got aboard the bandwagon.
The movies are charming, sweet and utterly harmless family entertainment.
For those unaware they tell the story of Cassie Nightingale as she arrives at a new town and the adventures she gets up to. Throughout its teased that she is a witch and uses magical powers but everything is so subtle that truth be told the existence of her having any powers is always questionable.
This fact I find very endearing, it's not as blatant as the rest and plays more on her efforts not her waving a magic wand.
This 4th movie has the charm but it simply wasn't entertaining. It's all about a long lost cousin of Cassie's appearing and causing trouble with her family.
The movie isn't bad, it's just very dull compared to the previous efforts.
