Plot

After a bike accident, sweet but nerdy Louise Miller (Robyn Elaine Lively) knocks on the door of a strange looking house, hoping to use the phone. Instead she finds a strange but welcoming woman, the seer Madame Serena (Zelda Rubinstein), who is stunned to realize that Louise is a reincarnated witch and old friend of Serena's. On Louise's 16th birthday, her magical powers return to her through a powerful amulet she lost in a former life. Now that Louise has the power to make her dreams come true, she casts a popularity spell to win the hottest guy in school Brad (Dan Gauthier) without earning his love. Louise then becomes the most popular girl in school while getting back at her English teacher, Mr. Weaver, and the cheerleaders who never respected her. After realizing that believing in yourself is the true magic, Louise gives up her power to make her own happy ending.
