Check the scenario: You move to a new city with no new friends, and, to cap off one fine day, your kicks get jacked by the town delinquents. The last thing anyone in this situation needs is a needling smart-ass for a sister, especially one begging to be taken trick-or-treating, but that's exactly what Max (Omri Katz) gets with Dani.
To make matters worse, she totally handicaps his game while he's trying to lay the mack down on the baddest chick in school, Alison. ("Max likes your yabos—in fact, he loves them!") Of course, that all gets pushed to the backburner when the Sanderson witches (Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy) arise, but for the movie's first 20 minutes or so, Dani is the absolute worst.
