Three distinctly non-Shakespearean witches violate a pledge not to use their powers as they try to corral their town’s straying males, particularly a chicken farmer tellingly nicknamed ‘Cocksey’. The tactics of the weird sisters — actually only two are siblings — go somewhat awry, as their spells have the side effect of returning the husband of the head (not-at-all-ugly) hag to childhood. Tammy Brady’s good-natured comedy recalls the beloved sitcoms Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie but the enchanting principals here are a generation beyond their TV counterparts — thus, the red hat(s).
