Bette Midler Loves “Hocus Pocus” Just As Much As Everyone Else

1350586053_bette-midler-hocus-pocus-560Oh, I love it. I love it. We made at before the tidal wave of Halloween happened. Now it’s like huge. It’s huge. Kids, grown-ups, everyone takes part in it. This movie was kind of like the beginning of the wave. We had a great time making it. It was Kathy Najimy, Sarah Jessica Parker and I and we laughed the whole time … we just had the best time.”
