When the prophecy proves true, the teenager uses her new powers to get what she's always desired: popularity. After getting back at some bullies, the young witch casts a spell over hunky jock Brad Powell (Dan Gauthier). But Louise soon learns that getting what you want isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Today, I'm going to be posting six 80's teen comedies that seemed to constantly be playing on cable back in the day.

This is probably the worst of these six films.

The rap scene must be seen to be believed.

I would like a Joshua John Miller tag be added to this. He played the younger brother. Not only does he have a ton of child acting credits, he was in Near Dark. He also wrote Final Girls.

Dude deserves to be recognized.

Are those teens from the 1980s, or the 1950s?

The only movie rap scene that may be worse is the one from Cool as Ice.

I forgot about that kid! He was also Tom Atkins' presumably eaten by Druid bugs son in Halloween III.

I didn't know he wrote The Final Girls. I love that movie.

Damn it, DirtyOldTown! Now I can't stop thinking, "I'm Hot! And you're Not! I don't really give a ____ about tryin' to top that!" I've been mumbling it to myself for the last 30 minutes. Thanks a lot, ya jerk! (i kid because i love)
