Practical Magic

Continuity mistake: In an early scene where the young Sally and Gillian are walking up to the aunts' house, the girls shown are the ones that play Sally's daughters and they're wearing velvet dresses. When they reach the aunts, the film shows the young girls that are actually playing young Sally and Gillian and they're wearing sailor type school girl uniforms.

Continuity mistake: Gilly is on the floor inside the circle formed by the other women to prevent her from escaping. Sally falls on her knees to be close to her sister. When the camera shows Gilly from Sally's position her head is turned right, when they are both in the shot Gilly's head is turned left

Continuity mistake: When Sally is talking to Gillian after the first failed exorcism attempt, we see Sarah is wearing white shoes; but when they are pouring the potion on the grave, she has brown sandals.

Continuity mistake: Hallet takes his jacket off twice when he's in his room with Sally.


Gary Hallet: You're saying what I'm feeling is just one of your spells?
Sally Owens: Yeah. It's not real. And if you stay, I wouldn't know if it was because of the spell and... you wouldn't know if it was because I didn't want to go to prison.
Gary Hallet: Yeah, well... you know, all relationships have problems.

Trivia: At the end of the film, the witches in black robes are all wearing red-and-white striped socks. This is a nod to one of the most recognizable witches of all time, the Wicked Witch of the East in "The Wizard of Oz."
