Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus (1993) The Sanderson Sisters are 17th century witches who were conjured up by unsuspecting pranksters in present-day Salem. The key to their immortality involves three children and a talking cat, who also turn out to be their biggest obstacles.

Annie

Annie (1982) The acclaimed and infectious stage musical gets the big screen treatment. Annie is a red-haired mop-top orphan (Aileen Quinn), yearning to break out of her dreary life in an orphanage run by an iron-fisted, boozy matron Miss Hannigan. But the little auburn angel manages to charm billionaire Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks (Albert Finney) into adopting her--but what she really wants is to find her real parents. With characters based on the 'Little Orphan Annie' comic strip, this feel-good film has loads of singalong songs and dance routines. Academy Award Nominations for Best Art Direction/Set Decoration and Best Original Score.

Herbie: Fully Loaded

Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005) The Love Bug is back! Herbie (AKA No. 53), the sweet little '63 Volkswagen bug with a mind of his own and a serious love for speed, pairs with Lindsay Lohan in 'Herbie: Fully Loaded' for a sunny comedy. Maggie Peyton is a third generation member of a NASCAR racing family and dreams of winning from behind the wheel, but her protective dad Ray Peyton Sr. nixes the idea, while her brother Ray Jr. carries on the family legacy (even though he's not a very good driver). After graduating from college and securing a job at ESPN, Maggie has one month at home before leaving for New York City. When Ray Sr. offers her a car as a graduation gift, they visit a junkyard to pick out a used stock car and end up coming home with a thrilled Herbie. Maggie quickly discovers Herbie is more than just a regular car, and soon they're on their way to realising her dreams of racing glory while battling ego-inflated champ Trip Murphy (Matt Dillon) with the help of her cute mechanic friend Kevin. As Maggie, Lohan is spunky, determined, and adorable; young girls will love this inspirational character. Herbie himself is as winning as ever. The movie cleverly opens with highlights of Herbie's past exploits, going all the way back to his debut in 1969 in 'Herbie The Love Bug'. Older fans of the series will delight in seeing Herbie back in action, while the newly initiated will easily see what makes this car so special. NASCAR devotees should look for cameos from drivers Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jamie McMurray, Casey Mears, Kevin Harvick, and Rusty Wallace. Fun, exhilarating, and touching, 'Herbie: Fully Loaded' is the perfect family comedy.
