Other mistake: In the end credits, the filmmakers misspell the name of the town they wish to thank. They spell it "Coupville", but it's actually spelled "Coupeville."
Continuity mistake: When Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman are getting ready to bring back Nicole Kidman's jerk boyfriend from the dead, they are going to put him on a counter that has towels and other stuff on it. The camera shows them picking him up and putting him on the counter, and when they do, the towels and stuff are all gone, without them clearing it off. (00:36:40)
Continuity mistake: When they do the spell on Nicole's boyfriend, Nicole cuts his top, then in the next scene, it's a different, buttoned up top, not the one that Nicole cut in the first scene.
Trivia: The production hired a practising witch to be a consultant. However, after being hired, the witch began making insane demands, including wanting a percentage of the gross, some merchandizing rights, and an additional $250,000 on top of what she was already being paid. After the production understandably refused, she began screaming in tongues over the phone and "cursed" the production, then began lawyering up. The studio heads freaked out, and paid her just to get her to leave the production.
Sally Owens: Louis L'amour, who, by the way, was not a foreigner! He was from North Dakota, you asshole.
Children: Witch! Witch! You're a bitch! Witch! Witch! You're a bitch.
Sally Owens: You'd think after three hundred years they'd come up with a better rhyme.
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.
Question: Near the end when Sally is in the circle with Gilly, there is a series of flashbacks. There is a shot of a woman with curly shoulder length hair surrounded by white. Who is she? She's not their mother as she has long straight hair.
