This movie is so cute. It brought back "high school" for me in the outfits and hair. I will be watching this one again and again. Music is kinda corny and some of the situations are goofy but that's the time period, nostalgic if you ask me.

A TRUE 80S' FILM....AND CHEESY!

"If you like cheesy 80s' films, this is the one to watch! and it's one, if you are like me, that you can watch multiple times. It's the story of Louise Miller, a 15(about to be 16) year old girl who is a witch. She uses her power to become popular, and get the guy she wants, who bares a striking resemblence to Tom Cruise. Louise realizes later that she wants the guy to like her for herself and not the popularity part of the whole thing. IT's a great film for teenagers, kids, anyone! Even 30 year old women(like me) still enjoy it. I saw this movie a year or two after it as released. There is a lot of cheesy music, and a weird girl's gym scene where they dance around to a song called, "I LIKE BOYS!" it's ultimate cheese.but it's a cute story with a good moral. I also think that Robyn Lively is one of the best young actresses around. Watch this movie if u want to have fun!"
Gotta love Teen Witch!

"I love Teen Witch! I saw it on the Disney channel many years back and ever since then I could not get the movie out of my head. I didn't know the title so I searched every movie database on the internet looking for a movie about a teenage girl who goes to a gypsy and becomes the most popular girl in school. I love every part of the movie (okay, except the cheesy locker room scene where the cheerleaders sing and dance "I like boys"). This past summer I saw the title "Teen Witch" when I was flipping through movie channels and automatically thought that could be the movie I was looking for all this time. Then I got the VHS for Christmas. I highly recommend the film for its moral of self-confidence, for the cute love story (the guy is sooo hot, even in 80's clothes), and the fashion Louise struts after she becomes popular. I think its every girl's dream to be popular in high school and get the most popular, handsome guy in school. I have watched this movie so many times and never get sick of it! It may be a tad cheesy, but keep an open mind."

"While the boys of the 80's had Michael J. Fox as the "Teen Wolf", girls were well-catered for too, with Robyn Lively as TEEN WITCH. For a fun flashback to the era of leg-warmers, frizzy perms and stonewash jeans, TEEN WITCH is a great film.
Louise Miller (Robyn Lively) is the school dork, until she inherits magical powers on her 16th birthday. Almost immediately Louise transforms from wallflower to wonder-witch, and nothing, it seems, is impossible...not even the love of the highschool football hero (Dan Gauthier).
Zelda Rubinstein, Marcia Wallace, Shelley Berman and Dick Sargent (from "Bewitched") are all fabulous. Robyn Lively is an appealing presence in the lead role. The DVD includes both widescreen and full-frame versions of the movie.
"Ok -- if you know what that means, or are laughing, you have seen "Teen Witch" and for some unknown reason, love it as well. I consider myself a queen of B movies -- some of my favorites movies are movies that should never have been produced, much less released -- and this is one of them.
watch it once, and you'll be singing "you're gonna be the most popular girl" in your head all the time."
