Teen Witch: Best. Movie. Ever.

by Mollie Wells

Here’s why Sunday afternoon television totally rules: as I write this, ABC Family is airing Teen Witch, one of the most awesome/terrible high-school flicks of the 80s. I loved this movie when I was younger, and it’s still one of my guiltiest pleasures; I mean, who can resist a cheesy escapist story about a nerd who becomes the most popular girl in school…by using witchcraft? And not just any old witchcraft–witchcraft taught by the incomparable Zelda Rubinstein. Plus, it features the following:

-A vile girl named Kiki (what else?) who makes our heroine’s life hell.
-Semi-choreographed song-and-dance numbers.
-A total hunkified heartthrob named Brad.
-A magic bedazzled denim tour jacket.
-And the piece de resistance, as shown in the above video: a suburban rap crew getting totally faced by Polly’s rad rhymes.

Oh my god, it’s just too good. Watch the vid, ladies–you won’t be sorry. (The magic starts about 37 seconds in.)
