Movie Info

An otherwise boring and unpopular Louise is enamored with Brad, the star of the high-school football team, but her feelings are not reciprocated. One week before her birthday, she visits a psychic and is told she has latent, genetically predisposed witch abilities that will blossom on her sixteenth birthday.

Tubular '80s teen fluff: silly, fun, and shallow.

Full Review… | December 18, 2010
Common Sense Media

A fantasy, comedy, romance, and musical all for the price of one, with such only-in-a-great-bad-movie treats as a 'funky' white rapper busting into rhyme every now and then.

Audience Reviews for Teen Witch

Louise Miller (Robyn Lively) is your typical teenage girl. She's in high school and is in love with football player Brad (Dan Gauthier), who is also the cutest and most popular guy in school. One nigh after going to see a psychic, Madame Serena she is given powers on her 16th birthday. She uses them to make herself popular but then questions whether Brad really likes her for her after she becomes popular. A great 80s movie that is perfect to watch around Halloween or any time.

A silly teenage movie, it's pretty campy, so I guess it's got a cult following now, but I don't think it's all that good. It's okay, but not a great movie.

Teen Witch is an ideal lamb to the slaughter for you and your friends. It's a great example of late-80s camp, ripe with painfully outdated style and bizarre in the most incomprehensible of ways. This movie isn't terrible by any conventional definitions, but it's a dime-a-dozen romcom with a gimmick that this era excreted out constantly and has summarily been forgotten. I think the greatest part about it is that Teen Witch completely abandons her frumpy Jewish best friend after she becomes pretty and popular and we never hear from her again.

I know everyone cites Top That as the pinnacle of this movie, but in my opinion, I Like Boys is by far the most brilliant musical number to be found in Teen Witch. Dances in the locker room? Spray-on deodorant? Towel shimmying? Only in my best dreams.
