10. The Aunts, 'Practical Magic'
Oh, and the aunts deserve a special mention in Practical Magic as well. Frances and Jet are, after all, a part of the ultimate showdown in the film –– plus they taught Sally and Gillian everything they know. It is so important that these older women aren't haggard thieves who go after their men or youth. Instead, they have a positive influence on the young female protagonists' lives.

And in the end, Sally and Gillian band together with their aunts and women in their town to wrest themselves of the demonic hold of Kidman's abusive boyfriend-turned-evil-spirit. Without their aunts' teachings, this climactic moment just wouldn't have been possible.
